Carol Moseley-Braun on Immigration

Former IL Senator; Democratic Candidate for President


Amnesty & driver's licenses for undocumented workers

Q: What about giving undocumented immigrants access to driver's licenses?

BRAUN: I would agree with legalization. Those who live here ought to be able to get driver's license, ought to be able to participate as citizens participate. We need to be normalize our relations with documented, as well as undocumented people who are here in the US. It doesn't matter if you came to this country on the Mayflower or a slave ship, across the Rio Grande or through Ellis Island, we are all in the same boat now
