Cox: Illegal immigrants can't get Michigan driver's license
LANSING -- Michigan's attorney general says illegal immigrants can no longer get a state driver's license.
Mike Cox's legal opinion overrules an opinion written in 1995 by former Attorney General Frank Kelley.
Michigan is one of a handful of states in which illegal immigrants have been able to get driver's licenses.
But Cox says people who aren't lawfully in the U.S. can't be residents of Michigan for the purposes of obtaining a driver's license.
The opinion released Thursday may bolster efforts to create a new Michigan driver's license and state identification card.
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land has proposed a plan under which only those who are Michigan residents and legally in the U.S. would be able to get the new standard license.
