Putnam County Commission passes resolution opposing issuance of drivers licenses to applicants without Social Security numbers

Fairness to legal residents and the theory of a drivers license as an illegal immigrant magnet were two reasons cited by opponents to the current state of the law.

County Commissioner Larry Epps "said the only purpose of issuing a driver's license is to prove identity and to provide minimal competency on the road, in response to comments that issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants causes a huge influx of undocumented immigrants in Tennessee."
