Esquivel Speaks Out Against Drivers Licenses for Illegals
Salem, OR—The Oregon House of Representatives today voted to pass Senate Bill 833, which establishes a system for creating driving privileges for residents who are undocumented or otherwise in the country illegally. Rep. Sal Esquivel (R-Medford) was among those voting against this bill, which passed 38-20.
“When we took our oaths of office, we swore to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States and Oregon,” Rep. Esquivel said. “But right now, we are turning around and breaking federal law.”
