Temporary Injunction Granted Against "Two Document Rule"

Comments Off

In early November, a class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of a plaintiff class and the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless alleging that the “two document rule” was both illegal and unconstitutional. The “two document rule” states that a passport must be accompanied by another identification document in order to acquire a license or ID card. The law is intended to stop illegal immigrants from getting licenses or ID cards and supporters say that it could help prevent identity theft and fraud as well as fight illegal immigration. Judge Larry Naves granted a temporary injunction barring provisions of the law saying that it discriminated against the homeless.
