Push for Driving Cards for Immigrants in Indiana

14 states issue driving cards to undocumented immigrants in place of licenses.

Immigrant activist groups want Indiana to be next.

West Lafayette Representative Chris Campbell says her bill would mean fewer uninsured drivers on the road and make the roads safer.

Immigrant groups say the driving cards would recognize the dignity of Indiana’s estimated 100,000 undocumented residents.

And they argue it would address their fear of being arrested for driving without a license, which could lead to them being deported.

So far, the bill hasn’t been scheduled for a hearing.
