More than 130,000 illegal aliens could receive driver’s licenses in Michigan if a bipartisan initiative becomes law.
Two Michigan state bills by Reps. Stephanie Chang (D) and Dave Pagel (R) would require the state government to issue driver’s licenses to potentially hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who live in the region and those who would be incentivized to relocate to the area.
Chang said the plan is needed so that illegal aliens “are able to do what they need to do,” she told Michigan Live.
Chang said having more licensed drivers would make roads safer and allow more people to purchase insurance, which benefits all drivers by expanding the pool of people paying in.
As Breitbart Texas has reported, once a state begins issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, the lax ID laws can lead to influxes in the illegal alien population. In California, an estimated one million illegal aliens are expected to have legal driver’s licenses by the end of the state’s third year with a similar policy.
California lawmakers passed the legislation in 2013 that allowed illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses if they can prove to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) their identity and state residency. To date, the plan is one of the largest victories by the open borders lobby.
Years later, an estimated 905,000 illegal aliens have driver’s licenses in California. The number of illegal aliens in California with driver’s licenses is likely to surpass one million before the end of 2017.
In the first half of 2017 alone, more than 83,000 illegal aliens received driver’s licenses in California.
