Some State Laws Hospitable To Unauthorized Immigrants

 Most states effectively bar unauthorized immigrants from obtaining a driver’s license by requiring a Social Security number for doing so. But 10 states allow undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license with a foreign passport or birth certificate, or proof of state residency. And 20 states let undocumented immigrants pay in-state tuition rates at public colleges, while six states prohibit that practice.
