Group Blocks US-131, Demands Driver’s Licenses for Immigrants

Corinne Moore, WOOD, May 2, 2022

Members of an immigrant activist group took to the streets on Sunday to demand that “all Michigan immigrants have a driver’s license.”

According to the Movimiento Cosecha GR’s Facebook page, the group blocked US-131 to make their voices heard.


Before 2008, anyone in Michigan was eligible for a driver’s license. Now, you need to show that you’re legally in the country to get a Michigan driver’s license.

The group was joined by marches in Washington DC and Boston, Massachusetts, according to the national Movimiento Cosecha’s Facebook page.
