News article on Texas drivers licenses for foreign nationals

Along with refusing to issue driver's licenses to people who cannot prove lawful status in the US, DPS has proposed issuing a different style of license to foreign nationals.

Preventing someone from getting a driver's license because, e.g. their status expires in less than 6 months, or because a time-filed extension has not yet been approved, is enormously frustrating for many people
