From the article, "
27-year-old Gracie Gutierrez and 20-year-old Saul Ramirez were allegedly providing Texas driverís licenses to undocumented workers for a fee.
Police said Ramirez would recruit the illegal immigrants and send them to Gutierrez."

This is the second thread in a week regarding DPS workers being convicted of selling licences - IIRC, the other thread was locked as "not an II issue" as the article stated they were selling to "unqualified recipients" and didn't mention the word "undocumented".

I guess once they got their LEGAL "paid for" licence they were no longer "undocumented" ?

No matter who they were selling them to, WRONG IS WRONG, can people not admit to what is wrong any more. Give me a break here, "unqualified recipients" and "undocumented" is one in the same.

Well look at New Mexico - that state gives drivers licenses to any illegal who walks into the office to get one. If they don't bring the right "proof" of residency, often they don't because they don't even live in that state, may not live in the USA at all but want the drivers license now, the clerks will tell them how to commit the required fraud, telling them right out that they could have someone put some utility bill in their name or at least have someone with the same last name "lend" them their last statement.

also if they have a licence in another state that's been suspended or they owe fines.......

fwiw, you don't have to be a citizen to get a valid DL, but in the majority of states you do have to at least be a legal resident of said state..... though not in mine unfortunately (WA)
