Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello asked Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Wednesday to address a lawsuit filed against the state's Department of Driver Services.
The federal suit alleges Geogia is discriminating against Puerto Rican driver's license applicants by treating them differently than other citizens.
"This is absurd," Rossello said in a statement. "Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens and cannot be treated unequally in any U.S. jurisdiction. I ask Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to address the disturbing irregularities immediately. The U.S. citizen of Puerto Rico cannot be subject to illogical and illegal requirements when procuring government services."
