Iowa Will Not Issue Driver’s Licenses or Nonoperator IDs to DACA Recipients

29 Dec 2012

In a recent update, the Iowa Department of Transportation will not issue driver’s licenses or nonoperator ID cards to people granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status by USCIS. According to the Iowa DOT, “the exercising of this prosecutorial discretion by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security does not grant lawful status or a lawful immigration path to persons granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.”

According to Iowa regulations, driver’s licenses and nonoperator ID cards can only be issued to foreign nationals authorized to be present in the U.S. Because of this regulation, Iowa’s DOT states that it does not have the legal authority under Iowa law to issue a driver’s license or nonoperator ID card to a person granted DACA status.
