    Some illegal immigrants could get California drivers licenses under a bill that Gov. Jerry Brown announced he signed into law late Sunday.

    AB2189 by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, will let the Department of Motor Vehicles issue licenses to illegal immigrants eligible for work permits under a new Obama administration policy. The bill requires the department to accept as proof of legal residence whatever document the federal government provides to participants in its deferred action program.

    What will happen is some states will stop recognizing California DL's as legitimate ID's

    A better approach would be to grant the license to anyone who can pass the test BUT require insurance companies to report their auto insured customers to the state. The state could maintain a computer list and automatically suspend the licenses for uninsured motorists.
