Nevada approves drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants

By Balitang America Staff

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The state of Nevada on Thursday became the 11th state to allow undocumented immigrants to drive.

Lines are now getting longer in Nevada’s DMV offices with at least 60,000 undocumented immigrants expected to apply for a driver’s authorization card.

Undocumented immigrants must provide proof of residency and any form of ID.

The cards will cost $22.25, plus $25 each for a written and behind-the-wheel test.

The driver authorization card will read “Not Valid for Identification” just below the state name.

Officials in Nevada assure undocumented immigrants that all information they provide the DMV to obtain these cards will not be turned over to immigration authorities.

    No if you are undocumented you should not get a driver license at all or given a chance to stay legally in the US all undocumented should deported back to philippines and do the right thing.

    that’s why it’s called undocumented, their illegals, it’s unfair to those who wait for more than a decade just to get their visas, There is no such thing as legal undocumented, they have to follow the law.All undocumented are illegals so sent them back where they belong, plssssssssssssssssssss…

    Good so that they catch you faster, they will know who you are and your picture, the faster they send you back where you belong ? When you ask by the FBI and others for you ID, they can check the computer and see that your undocumented and send you out of America to your home faster ! Good you can’t hide anymore !

    It’s hard to imagine there are people who hate so much those Illegal immigrant to stay here in US,mention these first five comments above I bet these are Filipinos, It doesn’t mean if your Illegal, and came here in this generous country Legally and expired their Visa that you are not allowed or Privileges to acquire this so called Drivers Authorization Card.
    FYI to five of you with not so narrow minded individual. Do you know that this Law is being Debate for over a year or so in the Senate by your Optimistic and Highly Educated Senators.meaning the author of this Bill and now a Law Had a Broad Minded and Profound feelings for these Undocumented Immigrants, Remember this is not FREE they pay for it and must renew every year. I am not a Math expert or maybe the five of you, Do you Imagine How much Revenue will it collect by the State of NV from these Undocumented individuals who are willing to get this ID, just for the ID, what about the Car and Insurance, Do you Imagine how Happy are those Agents who gonna have a bunch of Clients just because the State of NV Passed the Law to acquire this Drivers Authorization Card.(sorry to Five of you)
    Do you have an Idea that most of them are Underpaid well they don’t have legal Papers and Taking Advantage by their so called “Kababayan” Sad but True, and their paying Taxes too.
    And I bet that these Undocumented Immigrants are way better than Five of you when it comes to Talent and Skills.
    Next time the Five of you If you had something in “mind” that you want to post just to be heard or to be noticed. Think First and have a thorough information before you spread your filthy tongue over this Distinguished and Respectable site.

      @TJ … I isn’t about being Filipino, Mexican, German, Canadian or English; it’s about right and wrong. What makes it right to reward law breakers? A driver’s license is a breeder document. You do know what that mean? Right? Then you know that no-one in this country illegally should be able to have nor get one. It’s not always about money or talent. If they (Illegals) are so talented, then let them return to their countries and make them a better place. Is it being narrow minded to enforce the law? You are the one that is narrow minded. Remember that the next time some-one breaks into your home. Oh, I’m sorry that would be called an unauthorized entry.

          @steve: Tell that to the Mexican people, they cannot even say Yes or NO in English word. That’s why America follows their Spanish language instead Mexicans/Hispanics follow American language(English). If you come to America you should learn English language not me to learn Your own language. Tell that to your Mexican friends. Ok.

    Wait for Las Vegas to become like Cali. or Mexifornia to file bankruptcy in the future. And wait for Las Vegas to become a Mexican gang State like Mexifornia where there are Mexican drug cartels, Mexican robberies, driveby shooting committed by notorios Mexican gangs so on and so forth.

    @Steve … You need to sick to the core issues and not worry so much about a person’s English skills. You still haven’t addressed the core issue of illegals being able to obtain a breeder’s document like a Driver license.
