CA Issues 605,000 Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

In one year! That's "driving change" for sure.

Just over a year ago, Assembly Bill 60 became the law of the land in California. That meant illegal aliens could apply for a state's driver's license. In the first six months of implementation, almost 400,000 driver's licenses were issued under the new law. Now the California DMV is reporting a total of 605,000 licenses issued to illegals under AB 60.

DMV Director Jean Shiomoto released a statement: "One year after AB 60 implementation there are 605,000 more drivers on the road who have passed all testing requirements and demonstrated their knowledge of California’s rules of the road."

To make way for the influx of applications, the California DMV hired 1,000 new employees, extended office hours, and opened four new license processing centers, according to Breitbart.

In addition, the DMV "engaged in more than 200 public outreach events" handing out foreign language guides printed in Spanish, Arabic, Farsi, and Chinese.

California joins Washington, D.C., Connecticut, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Vermont, and Washington state in offering driver's license programs to illegals.
