Assembly Bill AB60 was passed in a 55-19 vote in last Thursday’s legislative session and sent to Governor Jerry Brown to be signed into law. This would allow undocumented workers to be issued California driver license, according to The Sacramento Bee.

“Just the general idea you would probably agree with,” said Meagan McGinty, 18, music. “There are quite a bit of people making minimum wage and they can’t really survive on it.”

Christopher Cadelago and Jeremy White quoting Brown in The Sacramento Bee,”This bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally,” Brown said in the statement. “Hopefully, it will send a message to Washington that immigration reform is long past due.”

I think it’s a great idea for illegal immigrants.” Tylor McCoy, 18, computer sciece said. “I find that they have to get their citizenship first before they can get their drivers license, but they should still be able to get their drivers license.

Proponents say the undocumented worker driver’s license will make the roads safer because they have to pass a driving test and acquire insurance.

Dory Mouawad, 18, computer science said, “They shouldn’t be able to get a drivers license unless they become citizens. Maybe make the process a little bit easier for them and maybe they can get their drivers license.

Opponents like Assemblyman Curt Hagman of Chino Hills say, “The state shouldn’t reward illegal activity with one of our most secured documents.” Reported KSBW
