Bill to Give Driver's Licenses to Illegal Aliens Introduced in WI

Contact your state Legislators and tell them NOT to support this legislation!

This bill would create a driving card that may be issued to a person who does not provide documentary proof of legal status but who is otherwise qualified for a driver’s license. In addition, no law enforcement officer, state agent, or local authority may use the driver card as a basis to inquire about the immigration status of an individual who lawfully presents the card for its intended purpose. This proposal also includes that no insurer may cancel or refuse to issue or renew an automobile insurance policy because the policy holder holds a driver card issued under these provisions.

Supporters of the legislation included: the Dairy Business Association, the Wisconsin State Troopers Association, Milwaukee Police Chief Flynn, and Madison Police Chief Wray.
