Lawmakers challenge new rules for legal immigrants

12/9/2008 10:13 AM

By: Catie Beck

Texas lawmakers accused the Department of Public Safety of encouraging racial profiling for adopting two new guidelines for drivers license requirements.

In May and September, the Department of Public Safety adopted provisions to create a new type of drivers license for lawful Texas residents who retain some kind of immigrant status.

Now permanent resident Juan Urena, a lawful resident of the United States for seven years, will not only receive a different license than U.S. citizens, but will also have to show proof that he is legal.

Who was there?

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, members of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, State Rep. Ruth McClendon and other legislators held the press conference to DPS driver's license rules for non-citizens that went into effect Oct. 1.

"Why do you have to be predisposed and look different from the rest?" Urena said.

Urena's license will not be a horizontal card, rather, like drivers below the age of 21, it will be a vertical one. Red letters will read "temporary visitor". Under Deposes new guidelines, all permanent residents in Texas will receive the same type of licenses.

"It's called institutionalized racism," Fort Worth Rep. Lon Burnam said.

A group of lawmakers said the rules will encourage racial profiling. Furthermore, they argued that DPS has no jurisdiction to implement such rules.

"DPS has no authority to be making immigration policy," San Antonio Rep. Ruth McClendon said.

San Antonio Rep. Ruth McClendon said.

DPS officials would not give an in-person interview, but told us this effort will reduce license fraud and identity theft, which has been problematic in Texas. In Dallas, 400 foreign nationals found a loophole and got licenses.

But some lawmakers want a look at the bigger picture.

"Allow the legislature to come in to 2009 and take legislative action starting from a blank slate," San Antonio Rep. Joaquin Castro said.

Lawmakers opposed to the new rules were critical of DPS. They said the agencies role in issuing driver's license is under review.

Urena said he wonders about it as well.

"You're here for a reason, you help your community, you pay your taxes," he said.

Urena said he doesn't understand why the state is toughening rules for those who have followed them in the first place.

I have no problems with this, federal law requires LPRs to also carry green-cards at all times, the "NON-Citizen" license will just reinforce the requirement to carry and provide green-card or proof of citizenship when applying for a state ID.

NY offers an "enhanced" license for Citizens, that can be used as a border crossing card.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

I don't believe DPS should be, or is qualified for, enforcing immigration. Serious concerns on my part.

And another thing

-The teller at the bank does not need to know my immigrant status

-The guy at the door of the bar does not need to know my immigrant status

-The guy at the licor store does not need to know my immigrant status

etc

Complete invasion of privacy. And DPS is completely immigrant unfriendly enough as it is.

Caro

Honestly, whatever. Do what they want to do, complain about it but for crying out loud don't call it racism. That drives me insane when anything something with immigration is discussed/enforced/whatever people start screaming racism.

They could easily put this info into a mag-stripe on back (akin to that one on your credit/ATM cards, though in this case readable "ONLY" on police-scanner) rather than use entirely-different design--of course, too simple a solution for gummint "workers".

Besides the actual mark on the license, all of this has already happened in Indiana. All of your immigration documentation will be verified with USCIS in Annapolis before you can get any form of BMV issued state ID, period. Despite there not being a mark, I have trouble believing that this information is not kept somewhere.
