(WWLP) – Advocates for Massachusetts immigrants are promoting a plan that they’re calling a “Safe Driving Bill.” The legislation would allow people to obtain driver’s licenses, even if they are living in the country illegally.

Proponents say that regardless of their legal status, it is safer to ensure that immigrants can have proper identification, purchase auto insurance, and receive adequate training before they get behind the wheel.

Opponents say that issuing licenses to immigrants without respect to their legal status essentially sanctions illegal behavior. They have also raised doubts over whether this would actually make the roads safer.
