Driver’s license legislation
PRINCETON — Gov. Pat Quinn has signed legislation into law which will help ensure all Illinois motorists, even undocumented immigrants, are properly licensed to drive a vehicle. However, Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said he’s not convinced this is an entirely good law.
On Monday, Thompson said he will enforce the new law appropriately and professionally, but he has very mixed opinions about the law. By giving illegal aliens or immigrants the authority to get a driver’s license, it is overlooking the fact they are still here illegally. The law does not address the bigger issue of controlling the borders, the sheriff said.
In signing the legislation into law on Sunday in Chicago, Quinn said an estimated 250,000 immigrant motorists are on Illinois roads, and those unlicensed drivers present a serious, but preventable, safety risk to all Illinois drivers.
