Yes, its quite true. As per the information, California Governor Jerry Brown is going to provide this greatest opportunity to undocumented immigrants living in this US state.
California’s expanded rights for undocumented immigrants—Undocumented immigrants living in California can look forward to getting driver’s licenses soon. That’s because non-citizens in California may quite likely be granted drivers’ licenses. So, this simply implies that nearly 1.4 million new driver’s licenses may be issued.
Such efforts mean making the treatment of undocumented immigrants a lot more humane as well as sane while ensuring maximum safety on the roads of California.
Assembly Bill 60—Well, all such privileges can become a possibility only if Governor Brown signs Assembly Bill 60. There is quite high probability that the Governor will sign this bill. Speaking about the issue, Governor said that the bill will help in millions of people reach their work safely as well as legally.
Driver’s licenses for maximum safety on California roads--A point worth notable is that signing of the bill by Governor Brown would not just help in ensuring the safety of undocumented immigrants on California roads but also help in reducing hazard on highways for all the Californians.
Because driving without a driver’s license means no obligation for having knowledge about traffic norms. And since undocumented immigrants are not eligible for auto insurance, they are more likely to be involved in hit-and-run cases leading to increased risk of fatal accidents on roads.
Asserting the need for driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants, Governor Brown said that California knows the importance of these humans to our communities and to the state economy and the step will, quite likely, provide a message to the people in Washington.
Yet another boon for non-citizens- California is going to allow noncitizens to sit on juries and also monitor polls for elections in which they don’t have the right to vote.
Moreover, the state also is allowing undocumented immigrants to open the practice of law. That’s something a big challenge to the US citizenship status and a move not yet allowed by any of the US states until now.
All such steps are, undoubtedly, immigrant-friendly steps by California to help make the lives of undocumented immigrants(those brought unlawfully to the US by their parents) and noncitizens more safe and easier.
