Governor Newsom signs bill allowing state ID cards for undocumented residents


Governor Newsom on Friday signed a bill allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain ID cards.

It is intended for those who do not drive and therefore do not have a driving license.

The legislation aims to support immigrants by expanding their access to state programs.

Street vendors, for example, can more easily obtain local health permits with an ID.

Undocumented students will have better access to in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.

Critics have argued that it rewards people who enter the country illegally, and they have expressed concerns about the cost of rolling out the new IDs.
