Certain illegal immigrants will soon be able to driver legally in Iowa after some clarification from the Federal government.

FOX News Radio's Lisa Brady explains:

Audio clip:

It's an issue arising from the so-called DREAM Act: illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children can stay, under renewable two-year reprieves from deportation, as long as they meet certain requirements.  But officials in Iowa had argued the new Federal rule did not give the state legal authority to issue a license to drive to a DREAM Act immigrant.

In a recent clarification, the Obama Administration says those immigrants are considered authorized residents, so Iowa's Transportation Department is reversing itself and will allow the licenses and non-operator ID cards.
