Undocumented Immigrants Fight for the Right to Drive
By Hana Sarfan

“There is a fair amount of evidence that a significant number of ICE arrests are a result of driving without a license” says Davis. A report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse found nearly four out of five ICE detainees had no criminal record, or only committed a minor offense such as a traffic violation. ICE’s own records show more than 76,000 immigrants were charged or convicted for simple traffic violations last year, excluding DUIs.
