Children and teens who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents may no longer have to suffer the consequences of their parents’ choices. Up until recently, Latino youths were not allowed to apply for Nevada Driver’s Licenses due to the fact that they were ‘undocumented aliens.’ However, a new order is being set in place that will make it easier for these youths to find work, get into schools, and, of course, drive.
President Obama has set into motion new federal guidelines that halts the deportation of these youths and allows them to apply for work permits. As of now, California, Georgia, and Oregon are the only states that allow these youths to apply for licenses. Mississippi and Arizona, on the other hand, have passed strict laws that prevent these individuals from becoming licensed by the state.
In Nevada, those who qualify by the new federal guidelines, will not be able to become permanent legal residents, however, they will be able to lead more ‘livable’ lives here in the states. To be eligible, individuals must be under 31 years old, have come to the U.S. before their 16th birthday, have graduated or are attending school, and have been in the U.S. for five years.
