Md. MVA Cancels Illegal Immigrants' Appointments | NBC Washington

Quote:
Thousands of immigrants applying for driver's licenses are having their appointments cancelled by Maryland's Motor Vehicle Administration.

The agency has been booking 2,000 appointments a week for drivers who provide foreign documents that lack a U.S. visa stamp.
2000 appointments a WEEK?! I'm happy that this is law now but its safe to say that MD was a week late to the party on this one.

The system allowed hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants to drive but has made Maryland vulnerable to fraud.But a ban on licenses for illegal immigrants that passed this week is set to go into effect on June 1. It will require drivers to present a Social Security card or other proof that they are in the country legally to get a license.
Hmm. . . . I wonder if the light bulb came on before or after the media exposed the fact that hundreds of illegals had the same address. . . DUH . .

Thanks for the update Alanboy!

Why cancel their appointments?????? Tell them to come in, arrest them, and then immediately hand them over to ICE.

Rule #1. All illegal aliens will granted free passes to do as they shall. The only time in which an illegal alien can be arrested is if he or she is caught committing a violent crime. All other crimes they commit shall be willfully ignored due to political correctness.

Rule #2. Discussing said crimes will result in accusations of racism/xenophobia/anti-Hispanicism/anti-Mexicanism and will not be tolerated at all by La Raza, LULAC, MALDEF, MEChA, US Chamber of Commerce and the almighty Mexican government.

Bingo! That would be an excellent sting. Only problem, it would be considered mean-spirited and racist. After all, they only want to drive. Never mind the fact that most of them don't even live in MD. Never mind the fact that they are ILLEGALLY in this country. We can ignore our immigration laws, but heaven forbid we infringe upon their "right" to receive a driver's license.

You forgot one: never mind that most of them don't know how to drive drunk or sober.

And you forgot one: most of them can't speak English and therefore can't read road signs (the ones with words NOT the pictures).
