BURIEN, Wash. (AP) Carlos Hernandez packed up his family and left Arizona after the state passed its sweeping immigration crackdown. The illegal immigrant's new home outside Seattle offered something Arizona could not: a driver's license.
Three states Washington, New Mexico and Utah allow illegal immigrants to get licenses because their laws do not require proof of citizenship or legal residency. An Associated Press analysis found that those states have seen a surge in immigrants seeking IDs in recent months, a trend experts attribute to crackdowns on illegal immigration in Arizona and elsewhere.

What is wrong with this ? Someone complaining how hard it is to be illegal and get a permit to drive ? WHAT THE HELL IS wrong with these people ? This is getting a little but stupid.
I hope those illegal licenses should not recognized as valid in states that don’t condone illegal entries? And if they’re stopped in AZ ( others) they get jailed for driving without a legal US citizen drivers license.
Washington, New Mexico and Utah...you keep ‘em.
And signing up to vote with the help of Clinton’s Motor Voter law!
A license is all you need to get on an aircraft. It’s a national security threat no matter how you look at it.
They are not undocumented immigrants. They are Illegal Aliens and should be deported if they are not here on a visa.
Wake up Washington State!!!!
Majority in state frown on immigration reform (Nevada....get rid of Harry Reid!)
57 percent oppose citizenship for those living here illegally
A new poll shows a majority of Nevadans now oppose immigration reform that includes a path toward citizenship for illegal immigrants.
The survey, commissioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and 8NewsNow, also reflects a growing divide on the issue between Hispanics and non-Hispanics.
Overall, 57 percent of Nevadans now say they oppose immigration reform legislation that allows those living here without legal status to be given the opportunity to stay and apply for citizenship. That’s up from a mid-April poll in which 48 percent said they would oppose such legislation.
Thirty-six percent of Nevadans now say they would support such legislation, down from 45 percent in April.
Among Hispanics, 83 percent say they would support reform with a path toward citizenship, up from 68 percent in April. Twenty-six percent of Hispanics were opposed to such legislation in April, while only 11 percent were opposed in the new poll.
And that means a greater possibility to grow government even larger!
