A new law was passed in the city of Cambridge to advise police to issue summons to unlicensed drivers instead of arresting them. This was existing procedure, but is now codified into law. This is a way to shield undocumented immigrants from immediate immigration consequences- if they are arrested for even a minor violation, they could be flagged by ICE. Massachusetts does not current allow undocumented immigrants to receive driver’s licenses.
