    Can you get a drivers license in Iowa if you are an illegal alien? When he gets out he’ll have to serve 1 year of supervision, probably by the farmer that had previously employed him.

    There are a couple of farmers over there that bring in illegals by the van load. Everyone knows it, but no one does anything about it.
