Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc., in an Oct. 2013 newsletter, "States Continue to Expand Immigrants’ Access to Driver’s Licenses," available at, stated:

“By ensuring that individuals without immigration status can pass driving exams, obtain insurance, and legally drive to work and elsewhere, such measures make our roads safer for everyone, stimulate the economy, and promote fuller integration of immigrants into our communities. Immigrant families can carry on with their lives without the fear of being stopped by the police, fined or charged with driving without a license, and possibly referred to ICE for removal proceedings.”
