Targeting illegal immigrants, Georgia House passes auto license bill

From the AJC:

Driving without a license could become a felony under a bill that passed the Georgia House Thursday.

The words "illegal immigrant" were never mentioned during the 27-minute debate on Senate Bill 350, but lawmakers got the message anyway.

The bill passed by a 99-68 vote.

The bill . . . requires a jail sentence of one to five years on the fourth offense of driving without a license in a five-year period. The bill also requires a prison sentence of two days to 12 months on the first offense.

The measure could greatly affect illegal immigrants because they are unable to legally obtain a driver's license in Georgia.
