Officials in the Republican-controlled state of Georgia have quietly agreed to provide drivers’ licenses to a group of illegals who have already lost court pleas against deportation.
The plaintiffs, most of whom are unnamed in court documents, are due for deportation but are appealing to the courts for permission to stay. Pending any final legal decision — which could be years away — the illegals can now use their Georgia drivers licenses and ID cards to accept lower wages for jobs sought by Georgians and to blend into the mainstream of American life.
In May and June of 2016, under the new policy, Georgia officials working for Gov. Nathan Deal quietly issued 2,753 drivers licenses to “immigrants” who do not have legal status. That’s an increase above the 1,872 licenses that were issued between January and May.
