Governor Perry Needs to Read His Own State’s Policies – Deferred Action applicants are eligible for Texas Drivers Licenses

By Peek & Toland on August 22, 2012

A Message from Jeff Peek, Immigration Attorney and Partner at Peek & Toland:

“If Governor Perry spent more time reading his own State’s policies on license issuance, and less time on political grandstanding, he would understand that Texas already allows people with work authorizations and social security numbers to get Driver’s Licenses, which means so too will Deferred Action applicants.  That is unless he moves to change this policy which is already in place.  Texas also issues Driver’s Licenses to people in Temporary Protected Status (a status very similar to Deferred Action) and other classes of immigrants in removal proceedings and out on bond.

So don’t worry Deferred Action applicants, a Texas Driver’s license will be waiting for you once you have your work authorization permit.  Please ignore our Governor.”
