Legislation granting driver’s licenses to undocumented people will help all parishioners in PA – both immigrant and non-immigrant:● Our roads will be safer if everyone has a driver’s license. When everyone on the road passes a driver’s test, everyone on the road will be safer. ● We believe that all families, regardless of immigration status, deserve to live a dignified life and drive free of fear in order to provide for their families. ● Driver’s licenses will help avoid deportations and keep families and communities together.● Driver’s licenses will help the Pennsylvania economy. Licenses help immigrants get to their jobs more easily and grow their businesses. ● Driver’s licenses will lower insurance rates as more people will be able to purchase insurance and report accidents.● Puts Catholic Social Teachings into practice: the call to family, community and participation; an option for the poor and vulnerable; and solidarity.
As part of a state-wide coalition working for unmarked licenses for all, New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia is seeking official support for this critical legislation from religious denominations in Pennsylvania. We appreciate your support of the immigrant community. We pray and fight for a more just and welcoming Pennsylvania.
