Once again California is leading the way.  Most who have dealt with the immigration system in this country have waited anxiously for any kind of solution coming out of Washington.  Some states have chosen to take action. Even though the states are very limited in their power some have chosen to lead instead of wait or follow.  California is consistently choosing to lead.  They are trying to make life easier for undocumented immigrants while the federal government sits around and fights its seemingly insurmountable inertia. California leads the nation in efforts to integrate immigrants living here illegally into mainstream society, providing them with driver's licenses, college scholarships and protection from deportation for minor crimes.  A new bill introduced would allow undocumented immigrants to obtain professional licenses in California.   The LA times has a great article on the subject click here to read it.  I applaud the effort.
