Illinois prepares for immigrant drivers licenses



"We won't share your information with immigration," Ernesto Martinez, a spokesman for the state agency, told a crowd of 50 people during a recent workshop in Aurora.

The state says it can issue about 106,000 of the documents a year.

Aurora resident Maria Juana Martinez says she's eager to get one.

"It's going to be such a benefit to drive my daughter to school," she said.

People will be able to start requesting appointments in November, but won't be able to go to the Secretary of State's office until December.
