I can see one advantage to issuing driver’s authorization cards to illegal immigrants.
Most people are not aware that the police are not authorized to ask to see the green card even though there may be suspicions that the person is in the country illegally. But, as we all know, police officers can ask to see a drivers license, and presumably the new driver’s authorization card.
That makes it easy — if the person has a driver’s authorization card, they are automatically known to be in the country illegally and must be reported to the immigration authorities. Seems like progress to me.
