More than 1 million undocumented immigrants in California have obtained driver’s licenses since 2015. But an even greater number, who don’t drive, have been unable to get a state ID.
A proposed law looks to change that.
AB 1766 — also known as the California IDs for All Act — would expand access to state-issued identifications to everyone, regardless of immigration status.
On Friday, Aug. 5, Los Angeles-area Assemblymen Reggie Jones-Sawyer and Miguel Santiago joined Pasadena Mayor Victor Gordo and immigrant-rights advocates at the Pasadena Job Center to tout the proposed legislation.
