License seekers pour into state
For years, illegal immigrants have come from as far away as New Jersey to fraudulently obtain driver's licenses in Wisconsin, one of a handful of states that don't require proof of legal residency.
Business has been booming recently, as more and more states toughen their license requirements, said federal authorities who recently arrested five people in South Milwaukee suspected in a fraudulent license network that reached into three states.
Wisconsin is one of just nine states - for now - that allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses and state identification cards.
Substitute "Oregon" for "Wisconsin" and this is a story that should be written in The Oregonian but they are too cowardly to do it. Rest assured, the same thing is happening here.
Imagine how newsworthy of a story this is, how easy it would be to put just one or two investigative reporters on this one, how much this would reasonate with Oregonians. But no, it's not multicultural enough for our news outlets.
