CAIR-Chicago Assists with License Suspension Issue
November 1, 2006

CAIR-Chicago's Civil Rights Coordinator Christina Abraham assisted a client in clearing up confusion surrounding a possible investigation pertaining to his license suspension. The complainant had his license suspended and was told that he was under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The complainant had moved to a new residence and obtained a new drivers license but did not cancel his previous license. Since he had two licenses with two different addresses, the Secretary of State's Office suspended his driving privileges.

Abraham spoke with the Secretary of State's Office and confirmed that there was no pending investigation by DHS. The client is scheduled for an Identity Verification Meeting, after which his license will be reinstated.
