Demand for licenses by immigrants in country illegally outpaces expectations

A record number of illegal immigrants applying for driver's licenses is outpacing expectations in California.

Nearly 500,000 Dreamers, whose who were brought to the US by their parents, have applied for licenses in California.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says a large problem with these licenses is how those in the country illegally are proving who they are.

Babeu claims Mexican Consular Cards, one document needed to get a drivers license, is not substantial proof of who you are.

Using these cards, Babeu says at least 1.5 million people in the country illegally are expected to get driver's licenses in California.
