O'Malley: No drivers' licenses for illegal immigrants
In a stand sure to spark controversy, Gov. O'Malley said today that he supports legislation requiring people to prove they are in the country legally before they can get a Maryland driver's license, the AP reports. Maryland is one of just a few states in the nation and the only one in the East that does not presently require proof of legal residence, a fact that upsets a great many people. (The other side of the issue says illegal immigrants will drive anyway, so we might as well make sure they know what they're doing, have insurance etc.)
One can only assume the governor is responding to O'Malleywatch's post on the subject from yesterday.
