Immigrant people stand up to the Pennsylvania DOT

Implementing an idea that other states have been toying with for a few years now, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has started revoking driving privileges for thousands of immigrant people in order to “mitigate the risk for fraud and identity theft” (ahem, BULLSHIT, ahem).  With their jobs, livelihoods, and the well-being of their families at stake, six South American immigrants (who did not have the benefit of legal counsel) stood up to defend themselves. And won.

“For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt.” Deuteronomy 10:17-19
