Undocumented immigrants can now purchase a license


Springfield – A bill that has gained a lot of attention around the state, illegal immigrants can now purchase a license.


Governor Quinn signed a measure on Sunday. Illinois is the fourth state to allow undocumented immigrants to get a driver's license.


There are some restrictions put in place with having a license. The license cannot be used as a form of identification. Undocumented immigrants cannot use the licenses to buy a firearm, register to vote, or board a plan.


Supporters say it is a public safety measure, but opponents fear that it will contribute to fraud.
