Lawmaker says give worker ID cards to state's illegal immigrants

Email

WILLMAR -- Sen. Joe Gimse, R-Wilmar, said he'd like to see Minnesota offer worker ID cards to illegal immigrants.

Doing so would allow "hard-working" undocumented immigrants who are already living here to get "out of the shadows" and work at businesses that need, and want, them.

The Willmar Republican said employer-sponsored identification cards would remove the "criminal aspect" of being here to work.
