Cicero Adopts Bill to Support Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsThe Town of Cicero Board Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution granting driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants. President Larry Dominick said that there are an estimated 250,000 undocumented immigrants in Illinois who qualify for driver’s licenses. Dominick said that granting the licenses will insure the undocumented immigrants have proper training, noting that many are forced to drive without a license or proper regulation or assessment.

“There are more than 76,000 accidents each year involving uninsured motorists who are driving without licenses and that costs more than $630 million in damage claims, much of it involving taxpayer costs,” Dominick said. “By granting licenses we will be insuring that they have insurance and also driver’s education training.”
