A Minnesota House committee is considering a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to get a driver’s license.  This isn’t the first time local lawmakers have advocated for such a bill, but the state’s DFL-controlled Legislature might actually be able to pass it this time.  The executive director of the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota told MPR News that “We have so many immigrants who are our neighbors, who are our friends” and this law would empower “those families to be able to thrive more in our communities.”  Undocumented immigrants can legally drive in 18 other states.
