On January 2, 2015, the California Department of Motor Vehicles began issuing  driver licenses to undocumented immigrants pursuant to AB 60 (Alejo, D-Salinas).  It is likely that many falsely documented agricultural employees will take advantage of this new opportunity.  According to an agency press release dated January 28, 2015, approximately 39,000 AB 60 licenses have been issued (that’s 28,000 more than was reported by DMV in its January 13th press release) and approximately 307,000 driver license exams have been administered since January 2, 2015 (that’s 197,000 more than was reported by DMV in its January 13th press release).
