Statement By Congressman Brian Higgins on the Proposal to Issue Drivers Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
October 10, 2007

I do not support the proposal to issues driversí licenses to illegal immigrants.  The government cannot issue legal documents which fundamentally legitimize illegal behavior.  We should be working toward an enhanced driversí license, which includes a personís country of origin, and allows for a passport alternative with the electronic information technology to provide for safe and efficient travel between nations.  The federal government must work toward comprehensive immigration reform that streamlines the frustrating, bureaucratic process that often takes many years and creates a better way for immigrants to safely and legally live the American Dream.
