Undocumented Illinois residents to be allowed driving privileges
As previously reported in this blog, /2/post/2013/01/legislative-measure-to-allow-undocumented-immigrants-driving-privileges-in-illinois.html, during the last legislative session, the Illinois General Assembly passed Senate Bill 957, allowing undocumented residents the privilege to drive legally. On Sunday, Governor Pat Quinn signed the measure into law.
Undocumented persons who meet certain criteria will be allowed to legally drive in Illinois starting October 1. The bill decriminalizes conduct that may amount to the mere driving to work, school, the hospital, etc. It is a long-awaited measure.
