YOUR THREE CENTS: Should illegal immigrants be eligible for driver’s licenses?
California last week became the latest, and biggest state to authorize driver's licenses for illegal immigrants.
But most U.S. voters still strongly oppose the idea.
Immigrant advocates have long lobbied for the change so immigrants in the country illegally can drive without fear of being pulled over for a ticket, which could get them deported.
Supporters also believe that the roads will be safer by getting immigrants properly trained and tested so they know how to drive and know traffic rules
The licenses would carry a distinction on the front of the card that states the document may be used for driving, but not as federal identification.
The licenses are expected to be issued starting in 2015.
But sixty-eight percent (68%) of likely voters think illegal immigrants should not be eligible for driver's licenses in their state.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% favor it.
