Florida releases the first batch of voided out-of-state driver licenses

Yacob Reyes writes:

"The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles published a list of out-of-state license classes no longer accepted here in compliance with a state immigration reform law that took effect July 1.

Why it matters: Tampa Bay is home to an estimated 81,000 undocumented immigrants, according to the Migration Policy Institute. The law restricts their ability to navigate a region with especially bad public transportation.

  • Law enforcement officers can already report undocumented immigrants to federal authorities during traffic stops, according to the Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added], a progressive-leaning research organization.

How it works: The state must maintain — and periodically revise — a list of out-of-state classes of driver's licenses that are now invalid.
