Better late than never, Michigan has put an end to driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. It’s a violation of federal law, say state officials.
It is not a federal civil right.
Look for open-borders whining in 3…2…1…:
Starting Tuesday, the Michigan Secretary of State will no longer grant a driver’s license or state identification to first time applicants unless they can prove that they are in the U.S. legally and permanently.
The move by the state is the direct result of a recent ruling by Michigan Attorney General Michael Cox which banned issuing licenses to illegal aliens.
“If you are not here legally or permanently, then we will not issue a driver’s license,” said Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, at a press conference Monday at the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center in Detroit.
“From now on we will not accept foreign birth certificates, just passports. No matter who comes in, they will have to go through the proper process and our anti-fraud department will go over documents, which is something we always have done.”
Just for fun, someone should ask Hillary about this at tonight’s Democrat debate.
