Driver's Licenses Likely To Pass In Colorado
An effort to grant driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants is making fast headway in the Colorado congress. A group called Licencias Para Todos, Licenses for Everyone, has teamed up with Colorado state senator Jessi Ulibarri, with the legislation.
There are many benefits to granting licenses to undocumented people, the group says. First, every immigrant will have to take the drivers written and practical exam, the group says. This is important because Colorado has some odd driving rules which all drivers should be aware.
A second benefit to the new law will be the influx of revenues to the state tax coffers. Only those who have filed their income tax returns will be able to qualify for a license. While many immigrants have been paying taxes for a long time, others have a lot of work to do in order to qualify for the law.

A third benefit is a likely lower insurance rate for Coloradoans. When all drivers are insured, companies don't have to pay claims for uninsured drivers. A license will help immigrants obtain insurance.
Law enforcement supports the licensing of undocumented immigrants, as well. Officers can be more efficient during traffic stops if they can identify immigrants with a license just like they do citizens. This leaves officers available to service other types of calls.
The license can't be used to vote or to board an airliner. While not obvious, all non-citizens will have a new marked license. The purpose of the license is to specifically allow people to drive, not to serve as identification to enter federal public buildings or other sensitive locations. However, immigrants must provide a valid I.D. in order to qualify for the license.
If the law passes, it won't be until August of 2014 until the new licenses are available. That provides the Colorado Department of Revenue which administers licenses an opportunity to set application fees and procedures. The licenses will only be available to Colorado residents.

Dreamer At Risk
Sigifredo Pizana is a 19 year old youth who is about to be very alone in a country that has mostly failed to open it’s arms to bright young immigrants. Sigi’s father was stopped by local law enforcement. Soon thereafter the elder Pizana had a date with ICE. After being in the country 9 years and 3 months, the elder Pizana was eight months short of the ten years which might have given him some hope. Rather than spend the family resources on fighting, the family has decided to go to Mexico. That is, everyone but Sigi.
At 19, Sigi was enrolled in college with a dream of studying actuarial accounting. When the family fell into crises, the youth had to drop his college classes. But it was about to get a lot worse. Soon, mom and the rest of the family plan to call it quits on the American Dream and follow the elder Pizana to Mexico. That leaves Sigi to fend for himself.
Sigifredo Graduating With Honors
When people talk about getting in the back of the line, they don’t realize what the phrase entails. In the first place, for many undocumented immigrants, there is no line. Even if there were, getting in back of the line means dividing families often for decades. Those who go to their native land can’t return and those who remain in the US can’t leave. With border crossing becoming difficult and expensive, upwards of $3,000 in many cases, the family remains apart for many years.
Sigifredo very much wants to take the steps necessary to become a citizen of this country. After graduating with honors with AP classes, this bright youth has demonstrated he has something to give to the country. If he leaves, he will be part of the world market which competes against the US. Most people agree, it is better he stay and become part of the fabric of future generations.
You can listen to Sigifredo as he talks to talk show host Tim Paynter on Un Dia Sin Fronteras. Joining the discussion will be Richard Hartwell, an Anglo who sides with immigrant youth. Richard says we need to pass the Dream Act so young people like Sigifredo can continue in the journey in the only country they know.
