A panel advising Gov. Jon Corzine on immigrant issues is considering recommending the state allow undocumented immigrants “driver privilege cards” and in-state college tuition rates.
Two Hispanic leaders told the Record that the state’s public advocate, Ron Chen, told them the measures would be included in a panel’s report to Corzine.
But a spokeswoman for Chen told the newspaper that it hasn’t been decided what would be included in the report.
The “driver privilege cards” and in-state tuition would need legislative approval before becoming law. Groups that support tighter immigration control have said they’d oppose the measures.
Corzine assembled a panel on immigrant rights with the idea of passing comprehensive immigration reform.
