Michigan farmers want to bring back driver's licenses for migrant workers

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Michigan farmers who employ migrant workers say too many of them aren't able to get a Michigan driver's license, forcing them to drive without a license or insurance.

Delegates to the Michigan Farm Bureau's Annual Meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 30, voted to encourage passage of a new law that would allow guest workers to have "limited purpose operator's licenses."

The licenses would allow guest workers to legally drive and get insurance while living in Michigan, without having to prove their citizenship. The licenses could not be used for voter registration, employment benefits or other non-driving activities.

Driver's licenses for undocumented workers have been unavailable since 2008 in Michigan, when the law was changed so drivers had to prove their citizenship or show legal residency before they could get a license.
