Driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants debated at hearing

Advocates of a push to grant driver’s licenses to people living in the country illegally packed a Minnesota House hearing Wednesday, at times breaking into tears as supporters explained how the change would affect them.

The move has support from a broad coalition of businesses, religious leaders and law enforcement officials who say it will make roads safer as more people take driver’s safety tests and buy car insurance. But some argue giving licenses to those without legal resident status will make it easier for them to commit voter fraud.
