Lawmakers move to give illegal immigrants licenses
SACRAMENTO (KGO) -- Hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants could get California driver's licenses if a bill headed to the governor becomes law.
The state Assembly has approved a bill that would allow the DMV to issue licenses to immigrants eligible for work permits under the government's "deferred deportation" program.
Several Republicans supported the bill, but others in the party spoke against it, saying the state should leave immigration issues to the federal government.
