Make the Road New Jersey Lauds Major Vote

 

(Trenton, NJ) December 9, 2019 – In response to the Assembly Judiciary Committee’s 5-2 approval of A4743, Tatiana Rodriguez, who testified before the committee and is member of Make the Road New Jersey and Elizabeth, NJ resident gave the following statement: 

“Today the Assembly Judiciary Committee took a key step in expanding access to drivers licenses for all qualified drivers, regardless of immigration status. As an immigrant who came here as a twelve year old, but who cannot get a license since the Trump administration ended the DACA program, I am grateful for the committees vote. Having a license means being able to take my son to the doctor, and to his soccer games. I am so proud to be part of a movement fighting for justice for our families, and I am confident we will get this bill across the finish line. Thank you to Assemblywoman Annette Quijano for her extraordinary leadership.”
