MI Farmers Want Driver’s Licenses For Migrant Workers

As many of you know, we’ve mobilized growers in support of drivers’ licenses for farm workers –many of whom are undocumented migrants who haven’t been able to get a driver’s license since 2008.  We’ve been including growers in our conversations with legislators to support bills introduced by Rep. Chang and others that would allow driver’s licenses and state IDs for these workers. The good news is that Farm Bureau is now formally backing support for the bills, and is hoping their recently passed resolution will give the house bills a shot at passage.  The bad news is that there may not be enough republican support for real change.
