CAP TIMES: Thousands rally at Wisconsin Capitol calling for drivers licenses for undocumented residents

There’s significant opposition in the Wisconsin Legislature to the idea of giving driver’s licences to undocumented residents of the state. But the speakers and demonstrators gathered Wednesday for a rally at the Capitol in support of the idea struck a hopeful tone.

“I’m feeling kind of happy, and hopefully we do get the license, because us immigrants, we drive scared ... because we always think we’re going to get pulled over,” said Mariana Rodriguez, an attendee from Appleton. “But we’re really proud, and seeing a lot of people here supporting, it feels good.”
