Drivers Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants

Members of our Social Justice Committee working in coalition with Reform congregations throughout the state and other immigrant rights organizations lobbied New York State Senators and members of the State Assembly for passage of a bill that would allow Undocumented Immigrants to apply for a driver’s license.  We worked hard because this important legislation would ensure:

· More drivers on our roads would be tested and thereby increase road safety, allowing the police to focus more on keeping us safe instead of processing unlicensed drivers

· More cars will be insured and fees will bring in more revenue to the state

· Undocumented immigrants will have better access to jobs, their children’s schools and medical help.

Our committee will continue to advocate for national, state and county issues that reflect our Jewish values.
