The future of Driver’s Licenses for Illinois immigrants will be decided on March 31. State Representative Edward Acevedo will call HB 4003 (Driver’s Licenses for Immigrants) for a vote on Wednesday. If this goes well the Bill will come back up in the State Senate at a later time. It is important for up to show a strong presence in the Capitol on Wednesday, and call our Reps. to support our lawmakers in making the right votes.
We have heard that anti-immigrant opponents are hitting all legislators VERY hard with phone calls in their districts. It is important that between now and Wednesday WE call ALL of our state representatives and encourage them to Vote YES for Driver’s Licenses for all Illinois residents.
***TAKE ACTION NOW***
Please Call Rep. Naomi Jakobsson in Springfield at:
Please call to tell her: YOU LIVE IN HER DISTRICT, to VOTE
YES on HB4003 and THANK HER FOR HER SUPPORT of DRIVER’S
LICENSES for IMMIGRANTS.
The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights
(ICIRR) along with other organizations will be holding a
legislative action day on the day of the vote Wed March 31 to help make sure that HB 4003 passes. It is possible that some people from Champaign will be going, please email email@example.com or call (217) 778-3638 if you are
