Illinois House Votes To Give Illegals Licenses
Here's the deal, though, according to current law, you don't need to have a Social Security Number to get a drivers license. You see, if you are a legal temporary immigrant who wants a license, all you need is a letter for the SSA stating you aren't eligible for a number due to your temporary status (See rules here).
That means legal immigrants aren't affected by the lack of an SSN to get a drivers license. That leaves one group who would need a license, but can't meet the current requirements, illegal aliens.
So, thanks legislators, for deciding that the best thing to do for illegals is reward them.
