Republicans suggest legislation passed in the New Hampshire House of Representatives is a thinly veiled effort by Democrats to give those who live in the U.S. unlawfully an opportunity to vote.
Majority Democrats, however, maintain that allowing about 15,000 undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses without Social Security cards will make the Granite State a safer place for everyone.
“It’s important to understand the function of a driver’s license. In short, it tells us who someone is, where they live and whether they are permitted to drive in our state. It does not address anyone’s immigration status,” New Hampshire Rep. Casey Conley, D-Dover, told The Telegraph when we reached out to House leadership seeking comment.
