GOVERNMENT

State Senator Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) (supporter of Connecticut’s HB 6495)

PRESS RELEASE

“This is an important public safety measure that ensures drivers on the road possess the necessary qualifications and insurance. Reliable transportation is a necessity in modern life. The need to earn a living does not vanish just because a person does not have the appropriate immigration credentials. Most undocumented immigrants would like to operate vehicles within the law. We make this impossible by denying these residents access to drivers’ licenses. Not only is driving itself illegal for them, but without a legal license, these drivers cannot purchase the required insurance.”

Former Colorado Senate President John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) (supporter of Colorado SB 13-251)
STATEMENT TO THE PRESS

“As a former cop who patrolled the streets of Colorado Springs, I know that these licenses will make our neighborhoods safer. On the contrary, prohibiting them does nothing to solve the immigration problem that we have; all it does is negatively affect public safety. These new licenses and IDs will allow peace officers to accurately identify people they pull over, and that goes a long way.”

State Senator Jessie Ulibarri (D-Commerce City) (supporter of Colorado SB 13-251)
STATEMENT TO THE PRESS

“Our roads will be safer when we can properly ID everyone who drives on them. These licenses will allow many of our neighbors to get insured, and take responsibility for their actions on the roads. In fact, we estimate that thousands more Colorado drivers will get insured because of this law.”

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
PRESS RELEASE

“I want to commend members of the Illinois House for their bipartisan passage of legislation that will help ensure every Illinois motorist is properly licensed and empower more immigrants to become stronger contributors to our economy.”

Former Illinois Governor Jim Edgar (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
“I know that we are all safer when every driver on the road is trained, tested, licensed, and insured. Under the current situation those of us with auto insurance subsidize those who are uninsured. If just half of the 250,000 unlicensed immigrants get licensed and insured, then Illinois policyholders will save $46 million per year in policy payments.”

Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
2012 LEGISLATIVE AGENDA

“This bill is a proactive step to help guarantee the safety and well-being of all Illinois residents. Our goal is to train, license and insure every eligible Illinois driver, regardless of legal status, to make our roads safer for all travelers. I am pleased to support this progressive bill and call on legislators to vote in favor of this public safety measure.”

Senate President John Cullerton (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez (supporter of Illinois SB 957)***
Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
STATEMENT POSTED ON THE COOK COUNTY WEBSITE

“This commonsense legislation will allow individuals who are already driving to work, school and worship services to continue to do so in Cook County without fear of unnecessary and costly incarceration. Requiring all drivers, regardless of their immigration status, to be trained, tested, licensed and insured will make our roads safer and ease the burden on Cook County courts and the jail.”

Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Cook County Clerk of Circuit Court Dorothy Brown (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Chicago City Clerk Susana A. Mendoza (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
PRESS RELEASE

“We all know that legal drivers are safer drivers. What I see every day in my Office are drivers who are complying with the City wheel tax and buying their City Vehicle Sticker without a driver’s license. These drivers have demonstrated their willingness to do the right thing and SB 957 will give them the opportunity to be properly tested and insured to drive legally on our roads by obtaining a Temporary Visitor Driver’s License.”

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (supporter of Illinois SB 957)**
Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties Delegate Joseline A. Pena-Melnyk (supporter of Maryland SB 715)
STATEMENT TO THE PRESS

“The truth of the matter is they are here. They are living in Maryland. The truth of the matter is that you’re not going to be able to take them all and send them home. So should you forget about them and make their lives miserable? Who pays for it in the end? The truth of the matter is they need to get to work. Their children need to get to school. This is the humane thing to do.”

Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks (supporter of Maryland SB 715)
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (supporter of Maryland SB 715)
State Senator Ruben Kihuen (D-Las Vegas) (supporter of Nevada SB 303)
STATEMENT TO THE PRESS

“Denying driving privilege to the undocumented population jeopardizes safety and raises insurance rates for everyone SB 303 will bring in new revenue at a time when we desperately need it…There are over 100,000 undocumented people in Nevada who could benefit from this proposed bill. It could mean millions of dollars in stimulus to our economy. They will purchase cars, they will purchase insurance and they will drive to stores, take trips and more easily find a job.”

Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla (supporter of Puerto Rico P C0900)
“Su contribución al país y el respeto a la dignidad humana los convierte en merecedores de cierta protección fundamental en nombre del estado.”

COMMUNITY & CIVIL RIGHTS

CASA de Maryland (supporter of Maryland SB 715)
PRESS RELEASE

Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland, said, “Maryland once again proved that despite a broken immigration system, reasonable minds can build safe communities that are knit together by our common interests. Our members, mothers and fathers, shop owners and seamstresses, need access to licenses to get to work, to drive their children to school, to take their parents to the doctor. Thanks to the visionary leadership of the Maryland General Assembly, they are one step closer to making those journeys without fear.”

ACTION ALERT

“Help grant driver’s licenses for all Maryland’s immigrants.”

Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (supporter of Colorado SB 13-251)
Communications Coordinator Juan Gallegos explained the need and purpose of improving driver safety in a newspaper article: “It would be one of the biggest things that would impact the life of immigrants…You have to drive to the hospital, you have to drive your children to school, you have to drive to work — everywhere you have to go.”

Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (supporter of Illinois SB 957)
– FAQs about the bill: English | Spanish

– Created a hotline for people to ask for more information.

– Posted a call to action on their website, asking people to contact their representatives to encourage their support for the bill.

– Press release

– Statement to the press

Lawrence Benito, CEO of Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, states, “Passing the highway safety legislation is proof that both parties can put the politics of fear and scapegoating aside and work on practical solutions that keep our roads and families safe… Illinois is an example of what can happen nationally.”

TESTIMONY

“Providing universal access to driver’s licenses is a critical element of treating all of Maryland’s residents with equal dignity and respect because it is critical to ensuring that all Marylanders have access to the necessities of daily life. The two-tiered system proposed in this bill would ensure that the provision of such access does not affect its compliance with REAL ID standards.”

The testimony proceeds to explain the bill’s compliance with REAL ID.
