La falta de acceso a licencias de conducir en MN a la comunidad indocumentada pone en peligro la seguridad de todos ¡Exigimos licencias para todos ya!
¡El tiempo es ahora! Hacemos un llamado al Gobernador Tim Walz y a los líderes de la Casa de Representantes y Senado estatal a que pasen una propuesta de Licencias de conducir dentro de los primeros 45 días de la sesión legislativa del 2023.
El exgobernador Tim Pawlenty en el 2003 removió el acceso a las licencias de conducir a personas indocumentadas. Su política anti-inmigrante sigue impactando duramente la vida de miles. Padres y madres no pueden transportar a sus hijos a la escuela o actividades extracurriculares. Algunas personas que se atrevieron a manejar sin licencias, fueron parados por la policía y enfrentaron la deportación. Muchas familias han sido separadas por esta ley anti-inmigrante. Llegó la hora, cambiemos la ley.
Existe un número significativo de jefes de policías, negocios y otros sectores de la sociedad que apoyan el dar licencias de conducir a nuestra comunidad inmigrante.
Únase a nosotros el martes 29 de noviembre a las 5pm para un programa virtual sobre nuestra lucha. Habrá invitados especiales y una oportunidad para hacer preguntas. El evento será transmitido por Facebook Live y Radio Jornalera MN.

Lack of access to driver's licenses in MN to the undocumented community jeopardizes everyone's safety. We demand licenses for everyone now!
The time is now! We call on Governor Tim Walz and the leaders of the House of Representatives and State Senate to pass a Driver's License proposal within the first 45 days of the 2023 legislative session.

 

Former Governor Tim Pawlenty in 2003 removed access to driver's licenses from undocumented people. His anti-immigrant policy continues to have a severe impact on the lives of thousands. Parents cannot transport their children to school or extracurricular activities. People who dare to drive without licenses, in many cases stopped by police, have faced deportation. Families have been separated by this anti-immigrant law. The time has come—let's change the law.

 

There are a significant number of chiefs of police, business, and other sectors of society who support giving driver's licenses to our immigrant community.
Join us on Tuesday, November 29 at 5pm for a virtual program about our struggle. There will be special guests and an opportunity to ask questions. The event will be broadcast on Facebook Live and Radio Jornalera MN.
