Thanks to a new law that goes into effect on Jan. 1, nearly 1.4 million illegal immigrants who were previously ineligible to obtain drivers licenses will now be allowed to get them in California.
California is expecting such a massive influx of new drivers license applications from illegal immigrants that the state opened a second Department of Motor Vehicles office in one city to handle the surge, according to Noozhawk.
A new state law, passed in October 2013, allows for the previously ineligible drivers who were illegal immigrants to acquire drivers licenses if they prove they are living in California. DMV officials say Assembly Bill 60, which takes effect Jan. 2, will bring in approximately 1.4 Million new applications during the first three years the law is enforced.
