New driver’s license law benefits undocumented workers

Undocumented workers in New York State are getting a big green light Monday. They are now allowed to apply for driver’s licenses.

“It will change the lives of residents, also bring huge revenue to the state as a whole,” says Yaritza Mendez of Make the Road NY.

License applicants without a valid Social Security number are now able to submit alternative forms of ID that include valid passports and driver’s licenses issued in other countries.

Applicants must still get a permit and pass a road test to qualify for a standard driver’s license.

Officials were working to assure those interested that an application with the DMV will not lead to an arrest by immigration agents.
