On Randolph road in Rockville, Maryland, there’s a shopping center with a modest Parcel Plus store where small businesses can rent mailboxes by the month. But it’s also the address used by 42 undocumented immigrants living in states along the Eastern Seaboard to fake a Maryland residence so they could get a driver’s license, records show.

Definitely the kind of people you want to give amnesty to . . . . NOT

Wow . . . just wow

And we’re supposed to believe they are honest enough not to submit the Motor Voter form attached to their driver’s license applications. Right.

The situation has gotten so bad that businesses run classified ads in Spanish-language publications in the District, Virginia and Maryland urging "undocumented Hispanic friends" to take advantage of the opportunity to get a Maryland ID without having to prove they are in the country legally.

In one case, Maryland motor vehicle officials say, 68 people applying for licenses and identification cards gave the same address for an 800-square-foot home in Baltimore.

It's a freakin free-for-all. Yet, when I, a U.S. citizen, misplaced my license, I had to provide my birth certificate and proof of residency – and I have had a MD driver’s license since I was 16.

Agreed. We both know that the so called "undocumented" are the equivalent of the character in the movie Catch me If You Can. The majority of them have numerous fraudulently identities that are used on any given day for any given purpose/occasion.

I have had to do the same for several reasons on many occasions.

UN freakin believable isn't it?

I'm moving to Kentucky in the not too distant future and the Kentucky DMV will not accept a VALID Maryland driver's license in exchange for a KY one because of MD's loose licensing rules. South Carolina will not accept a MD license either for exchange. Both SC and KY will accept a VALID VA DL for exchange (possibly because of Virginia's legal presence law? hmmm), I'm glad mom decided to stay on the Virginia side when we moved to the DC area.

I work at a bank not too far from the Maryland state line and you have no idea how many current MD IDs, plates, and licenses i see from folks who i know full well live in Virginia for a long time. I know full well illegals get MD IDs and set up shop in Virginia.

Honest? Crossing the border without US notification is step one to being a career criminal.

Here in New Jersey, they strictly enforce the 6 pt checklist to obtain or renew your license.

Just one of the many reasons I will never go back to Maryland, state of my birth, childhood, and first 35 years of life.
