Colorado rolls out driver's licenses for illegal immigrants

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/02/2014 - 12:37

"These drivers had to pass written and driving tests to receive their license," said Barbara Brohl, executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue. Last year, Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, signed into law the bill that was passed by the Democratic-controlled state legislature, with no Republican support. The measure's sponsor, state Senator Jessie Ulibarri, said at the time that the law would make the state's roads safer by requiring driving tests and insurance coverage for motorists.
