Oregonians will vote this November on whether to allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses if they meet certain criteria.

 

Callie Killebrew is a immigration attorney for "Hect and Norman" in Bend and spoke at the League of Women Voters forum Thursday.

 

"Immigration is a federal thing, but the state issue is needed to address the safe roads issue.  Are we going to have licensed and insured drivers on our roads?  I know there's a consensus in the law enforcement community that this driver's card needs to happen."

 

The legislature passed a bill and the Governor signed it last session to allow driver's licenses be granted to illegal immigrants, but a petition drive delayed that law from being implemented until after Oregonians voted on it in November.

 

If the voters overturn the new bill, the law will be dropped, but if voters approve it, it will take effect 30 days after the election.
