Driver’s licenses for some immigrants are questioned

Driver’s licenses for some young illegal immigrants in Ohio are being blocked by state officials questioning whether a new federal program gives the immigrants temporary legal status.

The Plain Dealer reports that Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles offices apparently are reaching differing conclusions about those immigrants’ status.

The federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program established last year by President Barack Obama’s administration gives immigrants who came here illegally as children two years of legal status, allowing work permits and Social Security numbers.

Some states are issuing driver’s licenses to those in the federal program, and others are not.

A spokesman for Ohio’s Department of Public Safety, which oversees the BMV, says the department’s lawyers are trying to determine whether the federal program “coincides” with state law.

Give them the drivers license and put them on food stamps, free tuition, free cell phone and all the other free stuff.
As Obamas illegal aunt says it's their right and the duty of the American tax payer to support those without the means or the will to provide for themselves.
This administration will just tax the rich to pay for it.
Lately it seems that all those who work are being taxed to support those who don't. Does simply having a job make you rich?

De fence, de fence! Whatever happened to the fence which was fully funded but not completed? Since the fence was not completed, where did those funds go? Why is the strongest nation on earth unable to secure its own borders?
