Hi guys. I have a friend who's been in this country since childhood not on her own will. Now she's in her 20's and still finds herself without the ability to drive. I have heard that in WA state, it is easy for an illegal alien to obtain a drivers license since the process does not rigorously check for immigration status.

She has a valid social security which she obtained many years ago. According to the DMV site, she has the required documents. She's just afraid that when the DMV checks to see her SSN is valid and not a fake, her immigration status will appear and she will get into trouble. Someone has told me that the DMV and ICE do not share information so that shouldn't really happy. But I just wanted to ask if anyone else has come across this situation before and knows anything about it. It would help a lot!
