Minnesota to allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses

"What in your bill prevents that terrorist from coming to Minnesota, getting a driver's license and getting on an airline and committing a terrorist act?"

On Wednesday, the Minnesota state Senate passed the "Driver's License for All" bill, which grants illegal immigrants the ability to acquire US driver's licenses.

Fox News reports that the bill states any person applying for a state ID or driver's license, "is not required to demonstrate United States citizenship or lawful presence in the United States."

State Senator Zaynab Mohamed, the author of the bill, said, "This is a huge win for Minnesota’s immigrant movement."

According to local KWLM News, state Senator Glenn Gruenhagen said, "What in your bill prevents that terrorist from coming to Minnesota, getting a driver's license and getting on an airline, and committing a terrorist act?"

Gruenhagen said many types of documents "could just about be forged nowadays" in response to Democrats saying illegal immigrants would have to provide a series of approved documents before they could acquire the license.

On Tuesday, before the bill's passing, Minnesota Republicans in the state Senate tried to amend the bill to limit the licenses and include the language "Not for Voting" and "Not for Flying."

In January, the "Driver's License for All" bill passed the Minnesota House. Now that it has passed the Senate, some slight alterations to the language will be made and then sent back to the House. The House is expected to approve the bill and then it will move to Democratic Governor Tim Walz, who is expected to sign the bill.

"Walz did not respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment on the bill and if he would support amending the language to specify the bill is for driving, not for flying or voting," reports the outlet.

According to local news, GOP state Representative Jon Koznick said, "We have concerns with the ability for people to vote or do same-day registration once they have a photo ID."

"We have real concerns about that with the integrity of the election process, and the sanctity of the vote," Koznick added.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, "Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to allow unauthorized immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. These states—California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington—issue a license if an applicant provides certain documentation, such as a foreign birth certificate, foreign passport, or consular card and evidence of current residency in the state."
