Some 400 people rallied outside the Capitol building in Trenton, urging state legislators to act on a bill that would give driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants in New Jersey. To many in the crowd, it’s a matter of fairness, of being able to get by day to day. And it’s more than just immigrants in this fight.
“I call upon our public officials to accept their moral responsibility to act in the best interests of all of God’s children by doing what is just and what is right,” Rev. Heyward Wiggins of the Camden Bible Tabernacle Church told the gathering. “And you have to remember, we put you in office. We put you in office to work for us.”
