Two years ago, concerned community members came together to provide support for a Guatemalan family seeking asylum. Allies for Immigration Justice was born from this group. Dedicated to working with community organizations, faith groups, and concerned individuals, they envision a country where all people, regardless of immigration status, are treated with respect and dignity, and have access to a fulfilling and prosperous political, economic and social life.​

The California Department of Motor Vehicles began accepting applications for undocumented driver licenses Friday.

Field offices on the Central Coast were busy with many people waiting outside the San Luis Obispo office.

Jessica Gonzalez is a spokesperson for the DMV and she says that the 170 field offices and the four driver licenses processing centers in California will experience a large influx of people in the coming weeks. 

By noon Friday, the California DMV saw more than six thousand applicants and had nearly 95 hundred appointments booked across the state.
