Yes, Oregon :
Measure 88 won more votes than anything else on the Oregon ballot. More votes than pot legalization. More than the incumbent governor, the incumbent senator or any of the six other ballot measures. The widely popular, landslide vote on Measure 88 prohibits illegal immigrants from getting drivers licenses.Filched from American Digest.
Oregon Voters Reject Giving Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
At the polls Tuesday, Oregon voters overwhelmingly rejected a law passed by the state legislature last April that granted driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants residing in the state.
The measure was put to voters after Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an immigration enforcement group opposed to the driver’s license benefit, initiated a citizen’s referendum and successfully collected the 50,000 signatures required to get it on the ballot. Voters rejected it by a margin of 68 percent to 33 percent.
“The ballot measure was a direct response to the legislature moving forward to providing driver’s licenses on its own,” Jon Feere, a legal policy analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Signal.
Oregon’s Measure 88 allowed undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license, valid for four years, without having to provide “proof of legal presence in the United States.”
