SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Jon Huntsman on Tuesday signed a bill replacing regular Utah driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants with driving privilege cards that can’t be used as official identification to board airplanes or register to vote.
The move comes a day after hundreds of demonstrators gathered to protest the bill, arguing that the cards amount to second-class status for minorities.
Bob Gallegos, president of the Hispanic lobbying group RAZ-PAC, vowed Tuesday to seek legal action against the law, and said he and other minority leaders would organize a one-day strike to prove how important undocumented workers are to the Utah economy.
