A proposed California law seeks to ensure that a person who uses false documents to conceal their citizenship status faces the same punishment as a person who uses a fake driver's license.

The legislation by Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) would amend the penal code to make both crimes “wobblers,"
meaning prosecutors would have the discretion to charge suspects in such cases with either felony offenses or lower-level misdemeanors.
