Illegal Immigrants Can Now Get a Driver’s License in Michigan

Illegal immigrants can now drive, well, legally in the state of Michigan.

Thanks to a policy implemented last year by President Barack Obama allowing illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children to apply for temporary work permits, Michigan state illegals will now be allowed to apply for driver’s licenses and state IDs, starting on Tuesday.

However, this was not an easy decision for Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, who among other state officials fought tooth and nail to strictly prohibit immigrants from obtaining the same privileges as actual citizens. Yet, Johnson says she changed her mind after receiving clarification from the Obama administration as to the eligibility requirements regarding this policy.

In order for illegal immigrants to be approved for a driver’s license or state ID in Michigan, they must prove they are under 30-years of age and arrived in the United States prior to their 16th birthday. They must also be able to prove that they have been living in the country for a minimum of five years and are either in school, graduated or served in the military.

Incidentally, we are a little curious as to how an illegal immigrant is able to do things like go to school or serve in the military without proof of citizenship. Hell, we’ve lived here all of our lives and we still need three forms of identification just to cash a check.
