Senate Bill 417 aims to vertically-orient ID cards and Driver’s Licenses issued to persons subject to deferred deportation
Sponsors : Senators Josh McKoon, William Ligon, Bruce Thompson, David Shafer, Marty Harbin, Michael Williams and others.
New tier of drivers license for illegal aliens must be oriented vertically – as are under 21 credentials.
SB417 will require Department of Drivers Services (DDS) to change the current policy of issuing illegal aliens who have been given a deferral on deportation (and some who have already been ordered to be deported) the exact same drivers license and official state ID card as is issued to legal immigrants and Mercedes Benz/KIA executives here on legal temporary visas. These credentials can and are used to board airliners and create needless confusion on our voting process.
Since 2012, DDS says they have issued, renewed or replaced more than 50,000 such credentials.
One of the changes to the documents required in the bill is to orient the drivers license/ID Cards vertically – as we already do for American citizens under the age of 21
ACTION NEEDED: Please call and email the office of Senator Albers and make it clear that you are watching this bill and want the illegal alien’s drivers licenses/ID Cards to be clearly marked to show the status of the holder and that it is imperative they are vertically oriented. If we can do it for American youth, we should have no problem doing it for illegal aliens.
