Driving Chris Crazy

From Blue Jersey, April 26, 2016:


New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP) is an organization that says it “aims to create a New Jersey with a robust economy, where opportunity and prosperity are widely shared.”

One of the ways the organization proposes to share the opportunity and prosperity widely is to give the almost half million New Jersey undocumented immigrants who otherwise qualify the ability to obtain drivers licenses.

With the execrable transportation infrastructure in this state, having a drivers license opens up more job possibilities to people looking for work.

At a forum in Trenton yesterday, advocates discussed the advantages of allowing undocumented people to obtain licenses. Surely, it’s a no-brainer to prefer drivers to have passed the requisite written and behind-the-wheel tests and to carry the necessary insurance.
