New York will soon become the 13th state to authorize driver's licenses for immigrants who enter the US illegally, approved by lawmakers. Last week the Assembly passed the bill, designed to give undocumented immigrants the right to a driver's license. Proponents believe it will boost the economy, lower the number of uninsured people, and improve road safety. Passage of the bill was a major victory for immigrants.
