To the State of Oklahoma Congressional Delegation:
We, the undersigned, join with the Identity Coalition of Oklahoma in urging you to pass an act that will allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses.
There are more than 100,000, if not more, undocumented immigrants in Oklahoma. It is a pressing concern and the needs are obvious. 11 states including Puerto Rico have already passed a similar Act and 12 others are in the verge of making a favorable decision as we speak. By approving this Act, the State of Oklahoma will have the following impact; 1) Economic - Revenue from fees and driver's license processes. Companies will be able to sell products and/or services that were not otherwise available previously to those that would be covered by the Act, 2) Civil - Roads will be safer. The DL will ensure that everyone is properly trained and able to drive accordingly to traffic laws and, 3) Social and Law Enforcement - the DL holders can integrate into society and collaborate with government entities and law enforcement agencies.
We ask for your support in passing the Driver's Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants Act for a greater and stable Oklahoma.
