TRENTON, N.J. — Hundreds of supporters of the right of workers without papers to get driver’s licenses rallied here Dec. 16 as the New Jersey legislature voted on a bill to do so. Gov. Philip Murphy says he will sign the bill.
“This has been a hard won victory, important for the whole working class,” Lea Sherman, Socialist Workers Party candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey, told fellow protesters. “Now we must redouble our fight for amnesty for the 11 million workers without papers in the U.S. This is the only road to unite the working class.”
