California Gov. Jerry Brown has garnered both praise and disappointment from many in the Hispanic community by signing a bill allowing immigrants to receive drivers licenses, followed by a veto of the “anti-Arizona” bill.
AB2189, introduced by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, would have allowed the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants who are eligible for work permits under a new Obama administration policy. The bill requires the department to accept any document the federal government provides to participants in its deferred action program as proof of legal residency.
