Offer driver’s licenses to immigrants, lawmakers say
Two legislators from Northern Virginia want the state to provide driver’s licenses to qualified immigrants living in the commonwealth. …
… According to the Commonwealth Institute, a nonprofit advocacy group for low- and middle-income Virginians, the number of immigrant (foreign-born) Virginians grew 19 percent from 2007 to 2013. That compares with a national increase of 9 percent during the same time period.
