Debate Opens on Illegal Immigration

Debate opened Monday morning on a bill re-asserting the state’s role in guarding against illegal immigrants by taking away their drivers’ licenses and state ID cards. The only thing that supporters and opponents agree on is that the vote will be close – with very few people from either side expecting victory on what has become a divisive measure. In presenting the bill to the full House, Anchorage Republican Bob Lynn told members that legal privileges are given only to those who qualify for them.
