SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) _ To get the driver's licenses they've long sought, immigrants living in California illegally will have to do something many have long resisted: publicly identify themselves.
The driver's license bill passed by the Legislature on its final day and now headed to Gov. Jerry Brown requires a distinction that will indicate if someone is in the country without proper documentation.
Brown has said he will sign the bill.
Mexican immigrant Albin Bandera says he's willing to take the risk. The 28-year-old currently skateboards an hour-and-a-half to his job as a waiter in Los Angeles. The commute would be but a 30-minute drive.
The bill was one of several pro-immigrant pieces of legislation approved at the end of the session.
