Utah university offers fingerprinting for DACA recipients

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) – Police at Dixie State University are offering people in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and others fingerprinting services – a required step to secure driving privileges in Utah.

The Spectrum reported last week that police at the St. George campus decided to offer the service after the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah reached out to them.

ACLU representative Sydni Makemo says the service should help hundreds of DACA recipients and immigrants living in southern Utah.

A record of a person’s fingerprints is needed to obtain a driving privilege card. The card allows people to drive in Utah, but it cannot be used as a form of ID.

Makemo says the service wasn’t previously offered in Washington County.
