A community meeting to support the issuance of driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants will be held on Monday, December 3, 7:00–8:30pm at the White Plains Library, 100 Martine Avenue, White Plains. Currently, undocumented residents are unable to obtain a driver’s license, yet we know that many undocumented people must drive to get to work or school.
This meeting will help to inform and educate attendees as to why New York should restore equal access to driver’s licenses by passing legislation that would enable all New Yorkers to obtain driver’s licenses, regardlesss of immigration status. All New Yorkers are safer when ALL drivers have licenses which require them to be informed of traffic laws and pass a driving test, and which enables them to register, inspect, and insure their vehicles. In attendance will be State Senator, Shelley Mayer, Assemblymember, Steve Otis, County Executive, George Latimer, County Deputy Executive, Ken Jenkins, County Police Commissioner, Thomas Gleason, Carola Bracco, Executive Director, Neighbors Link, Ossining Police Chief, Kevin Sylvester, Ossining Mayor, Victoria Gearity, DACA Recipient, Kevin Duarte.
