MA Moving Toward Granting Drivers Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
There's a new push in Massachusetts to grant drivers licenses to illegal immigrants On Fox and Friends this morning, we heard from the mother of a 23-year-old man who was killed two years ago by a drunk driver who was in the U.S. illegally.
Nicolas Guaman ran a stop sign and struck motorcyclist Matthew Denice in Milford, Mass. Denice was then dragged nearly a quarter-mile.
Maureen Maloney said she's outraged at the idea that lawmakers feel they can change laws to "accommodate people who habitually break our laws."
"I'm doing this because I don't ever want to see another parent have to deal with the heartache and pain that I'm dealing with when this is totally preventable by just enforcing our current laws," she said.
A hearing on the bill to grant licenses to illegal immigrants is scheduled for Feb. 5. Supporters argue it would make undocumented immigrants better drivers and make the roads safer overall.
Maloney says that states with this law already in place have seen increases in the number of accidents involving illegal immigrants.
