Dear Friend,

Tomorrow's the day!

Tomorrow, February 21 at approximately 5 p.m., the full Minnesota Senate will debate and vote on the Driver's Licenses for All Bill (SF 27). The Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM) joins other advocates, unions, community-based groups, law enforcement, and businesses in urging the Minnesota Senate to pass the bill.

We urge everyone who supports Driver's Licenses for All to contact your Minnesota Senator and ask for their support during the vote tomorrow and join us at the Minnesota State Capitol! Contact Senator link: [link removed]

On January 30, Driver's Licenses for All passed the Minnesota House of Representatives with a 69-60 vote. Since then, it has been heard and passed by multiple Senate committees.

The struggle for Driver's Licenses for All has lasted two decades. In 2003, the governor unilaterally revoked the right of all Minnesotans - regardless of immigration status - to obtain a driver's license so long as they passed the written test and obtained insurance. We are on the cusp of restoring hat right.

Currently, eighteen states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico allow residents to access driver's licenses regardless of immigration status. Learn more about how those states have benefitted through ILCM's Fact Sheet on Driver's Licenses. ILCM fact sheet link: [link removed]

Issuing licenses without proof of immigration status would not only benefit immigrants, but also those experiencing homelessness, the elderly, and other groups who may have difficulty obtaining hard-to-access documentation.

Call your Minnesota Senator and urge them to support Driver's Licenses for All! Contact Senator link: [link removed]

In solidarity,

Veena Iyer
ILCM Executive Director
