Michigan withholding driver’s licenses from illegal immigrants

Michigan's attorney general has said that illegal immigrants can no longer get state driver’s licenses.

Mike Cox' legal opinion overrules a 1995 opinion that made Michigan one of a handful of states that issues such licenses.

Cox says people who are not lawfully in the United States cannot be residents of Michigan for the purposes of getting an ID.

The ruling strengthens a plan the state has in place to issue new ID cards only to Michigan residents.
