Applicants still have to graduate law school, pass the bar exam and undergo character vetting, according to the rule. Previously, applicants had to provide proof of citizenship, permanent resident status or work authorization for the licenses. The rule change will go into effect on Oct. 1. Federal law permits states to pass laws allowing illegal migrants to obtain occupational licenses. Several states permit illegal migrants and Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients to obtain state drivers and occupational licenses, such as in Illinois. The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), a nonprofit taking legal action to ensure American border security, says the decision is “yet another move to dilute the value of U.S. citizenship.” “The end result is that there will be virtually no advantage or incentive to do the work to become a citizen legally. American culture and institutions will continue to decay with actions like this,” The executive director and general counsel of IRLI, Dale L. Wilcox, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. https://dailycaller.com/2022/08/24/migrants-immigration-border-law-new-mexico/
