Tina Liebling on Immigration
America offers a promise to desperate immigrants
Q: What will you do to fight the scapegoating and persecution of immigrants and refugees?
Liebling: Saying Gov. Dayton could have fixed the driver's license problem, added, "Let's just remember that children don't choose where they are born. They
don't choose their families. People who are coming to this country and who are risking so much to do it without documentation are doing it out of desperation. They are doing it because America offered a promise to them, or at least they thought it did."

Voted NO on complying with federal REAL ID
Legislative Summary: Only the following is satisfactory evidence for obtaining driver's licenses and MN identification cards:

licenses or ID cards, including what documents must be provided to obtain one.
- a valid, unexpired US passport
- a certified copy of a birth certificate
- a valid, unexpired permanent
resident card, certificate of naturalization, or unexpired employment authorization document
- a valid, unexpired passport issued by a foreign country and a valid, unexpired US visa accompanied by documentation of lawful admittance into the US
Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 72-58 on Feb. 23; passed House 60-7 on March 30; Rep. Tina Liebling voted NAY; signed by Gov. Dayton on May 18.
