The Risks, Including Deportation, Undocumented Immigrants Run by Driving

As Julia Preston and Robert Gebeloff of the N.Y. Times report, driver's license eligibility for undocumented immigrants can have tremendous practical consequences in the lives of undocumented immigrants.  Preston and Gebeloff write about how an ordinary fender-bender or a run-of-the-mill traffic ticket, can result in detention and removal proceedings for an undocumented immigrant.  As I wrote several years ago, the issue of driver's licenses eligibility for undocumented immigrants is not just about driving -- it is about the civil rights of millions of people living in the United States.
