Please support Drivers Licenses for D.C. Immigrants
Currently, our undocumented brothers and sisters in our nation's capital have no way of getting a drivers license or ID even though many have been part of our community for many years. They can't drive, enter federal buildings, and worst of all, fear being deported at any time. We are committed to make a change. JOIN US NOW IN THIS FIGHT IN OUR NATIONS CAPITOL!
We have two specific requests:
1. Issue a directive to DMV to not require a social security number (SSN). There is no link between identification and a social security number. Currently, there is no way to prevent fraud in the presentation of one. Furthermore, the federal government does not require a state to request one in the issuance of a driver’s license or state identification card.
2. Issue a directive to DMV to not request proof of immigration status. This will further implement your October 19th Mayoral Order. Additionally, it will ensure that District resources are not used for federal immigration enforcement purposes.
