Statement from Mayor Emanuel on the Passage of Legislation for Undocumented Driver's License

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“I commend the General Assembly for working together to ensure all residents can obtain an official driver license, regardless of their immigration status. I want to thank the legislative leaders for their support of this important legislation as well as the bill’s sponsors President Cullerton and Rep Acevedo. I applaud legislators from both sides of the aisle for doing what is right by acting on this critical legislation to make our City and State more welcoming to immigrants, while also making our roads safer by requiring all drivers to be trained, tested and insured. This legislation is true to our values as a City and will create value for our City. ”
