Last year, California passed AB60, which allows illegal aliens to obtain a legal drivers license. Under Governor Brown’s directive, California hired 1,000 temporary DMV workers, opened four new processing centers and extended hours in an effort to deal with the anticipated 2,000,000 illegal aliens who would apply for licenses.
According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, as of March 2016, 696,000 driver’s licenses have been issued under the program. However, AB60 does nothing to ensure illegal aliens purchase or maintain automobile insurance.
According to Fox News, if licensed illegal immigrants want to purchase auto insurance, California provides affordable plans with minimal liability coverage and annual premiums that are less than $250. The coverage is less than what is mandated for other drivers who purchase policies through private insurance companies, paying a statewide average of just below $2,000 per year.
Reportedly, California issued 650,000 driver’s licenses to illegal migrants in 2015 alone, but just 11,348 Californians bought the low cost insurance policies, and not all of those buyers were illegal aliens.
Clearly, the new law does nothing to protect American motorists.
