    Nearly Half Of 2015 California Driver's Licenses Were For Undocumented Immigrants

    Immigration Reform 2016: Nearly Half Of 2015 California Driver's Licenses Were For Undocumented Immigrants

    A new law in California allowing for undocumented immigrants to apply for driver's licenses went into effect last January, prompting an influx of applications. Under the new law, 605,000 undocumented residents received licenses, accounting for 40 percent of all of the licenses issued last year.

    Exceeding expectations, even more attempted to obtain a license: Around 830,000 undocumented immigrants have applied for a license since Jan. 2, 2015, the first day of the new policy at the Department of Motor Vehicles. The licenses are similar to the standard driver's license except they say "Federal Limits Apply" on the back.

    Additional administration required forced the department to hire 1,000 temporary employees, extend office hours and open four new license processing centers, according to the Orange County Register. “This was a major undertaking and never before had the department implemented a program such as this one,” Artemio Armenta, spokesman for the Department of Motor Vehicles, told the Orange County Register.

    Even with the additional resources, in the first few months of the program, many complained of long wait times and fewer available appointments.

    “It certainly overloads the system,” said Ann Coil, a local Tea Party Patriots coordinator. “And, again, we’re giving priority to people who aren’t citizens. There is concern in this country, and it’s reflected in this election, that there’s more compassion for people who are not citizens than those who are.”

    Illegal immigration has been a focal and dividing point on the 2016 presidential campaign trail, prompting heated exchanges between the 2016 candidates, especially in the race for the Republican nomination. GOP front-runner Donald Trump credits himself with starting the presidential candidates' campaign trail conversation about immigration reform, launching his campaign in June with the promise to build a wall on the Mexican-American border. His remarks prompted the California Senate in July to introduce a resolution denouncing the real estate mogul.

    "We certainly cannot stand in California to have a president who is representing California, [which has] the largest population of immigrants, calling immigrants rapists and thugs and criminals," Sen. Isadore Hall III, D-Compton said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. "We don’t have a place for that. California is a place of inclusion."

    Illegals from Texas and Arizona will also be coming for the California driver's licenses before long.

    Excerpt:

    Applicants must submit proof of identity and state residency and pass written and road tests. Those who don't possess foreign government-issued identification on a list of approved documents can be interviewed by a DMV investigator to see if they qualify.

    Doesn't sound like a very high hurdle of proof required to establish who you are or on the residency requirement. A forged document or two and you've got a California driver's license.

    It would be a shorter trip for Texas illegals to go next door to New Mexico for a license.

    Perhaps, but I don't know the requirements in New Mexico. I can't believe a simple DMV interview can be used to satisfy the requirements in California.

    AB 60 Driver License

    AB 60 Program Information

    Assembly Bill (AB) 60 (Chapter 524: Statutes of 2013) requires the department to issue an original driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof of legal presence in the United States. Driver license applicants under AB 60 must meet all other qualifications for licensure and must provide satisfactory proof of identity and California residency.

    AB 60 also requires the department to develop regulations and consult with interested parties in an effort to assist the department in identifying documents that will be acceptable for the purposes of providing documentation to establish identity and residency.


    Attention AB 60 Applicants
    : To schedule an appointment to visit a DMV field office to obtain a California driver license under AB 60, select Field Office Visit Appointment.


    AB 60 Applicant Resources


    HOW TO APPLY FOR YOUR ORIGINAL DRIVER LICENSE

    Applicants applying for a driver license under AB 60 can now make an appointment online, on the DMV Now iPhone/ Android applications or by phone at 1-800-777-0133, to visit a DMV office.

    Note: This appointment should be made as an “Original Driver License.” and is required for all original driver license applications. However, same day service is available at driver license processing centers (DLPC) without an appointment.

    Customers applying for an original driver license will need to do the following:

    • Study for the driver license knowledge test
    • Make an appointment before visiting a DMV office (walk-ins are only accepted at our Driver License Processing Centers)
    • Complete a driver license application form (DL 44) available at the DMV office
    Under AB 60, applicants will need to provide DMV with Proof of Identity and California Residency

    Applicants must also do the following:
    Pay the application fee
    • Pass a vision test, knowledge test, and if applicable, a road sign test
    • Give a thumb print
    • Have a picture taken
    • Schedule a future appointment for the behind-the-wheel driving test, if applicable.

    Applicants under 18 applying for an original driver license will also need to submit proof of driver education completion.

    For more information about obtaining a new driver license, visit Driver License and Identification Card Information.
