Permits sought for immigrants in US illegally

KSAL StaffDecember 21, 2014

The city of Wichita plans to lobby the state Legislature next year to allow people in the country illegally to receive a driver’s permit.

The permits could not be used for airport security or as identification to vote. But they could be used to obtain car insurance.

The Wichita City Council voted Tuesday to include the measure as part of its agenda for the upcoming legislative session.

The Wichita Eagle reports supporters say the permits would make it easier for immigrants to find work and would protect the public from being in accidents with people who don’t have insurance.

Rep. Ponka-We Victors, a Democrat from Wichita, introduced a similar bill last session, but it didn’t get a hearing.
