An immigration rights coalition known as Drive California is urging the California DMV to ease its requirements for identification documents to obtain driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. Moreover, they insist that the process has become too expensive for most of them.
Southern California 89.3 KPCC reported that Reshma Shamasunder, executive director of one of the coalition’s member organizations, the California Immigrant Policy Center, complained that the DMV is asking applicants to produce both a consular ID card and a foreign passport. “Acquiring both can be prohibitively expensive and actually impossible for some,” she said.
Getting a Mexican passport and a consular ID could cost up to $128 a person. Consequently, the group is urging that only one document be required. Consular cards are easily obtained by any Mexican citizen who is living abroad from a local Mexican consulate.
