What fraud? Where? I didn't see anything.

DMV seeks residency proof for some test-takers
Oregon DMV is sending letters to about 11,000 people who took driving tests from two private companies in 2003, asking them to provide proof that they are residents.

An investigation into what authorities called the largest immigration fraud case in Oregon history determined that some customers of the two companies, Catt's Testing, and Drive Master Education, provided false Oregon addresses to obtain driver's licenses.

I'd love to know, are they sending the letters in Spanish?

What I find very telling is that the various Fishwrapper articles leave out a very important sentence from the DMV press release:

"Some out-of-state residents falsely claim an Oregon residence because Oregon law does not require proof of citizenship or legal immigration status to obtain a driver license. "

Why did The Oregonian, The Statesmen Journal and others leave that out of the story? Covering the who, what, when, and where was easy. Why this happened was just as important. We are a magnet state for illegal aliens to commit fraud because Governor Kulongoski is a failure. There is your "why."

I will be taking my son out to our local dmv this week to test for his driver's permit. How much you want to bet we will be given the third degree while this fraud has been allowed to happen AND most likely continues to happen.

sue k...bring 8 or 9 pieces of I.D. if by chance he is a white American. my daughter needed social security card (not just the #, but the actual card), a copy of my custody papers that said i am the primary parent of record, school I.D. card, a copy of the status of enrollment at said school, birth certificate (certified copy), statement of residency in oregon. this is no joke, they really wanted all this stuff. it took me going back 3 times to just get her instruction permit to learn to drive. Of course with my sarcastic attitude and bluntness i asked the lady, on the second time there, if i needed to submit a blood smear or a urine sample, she didn't think that was funny, i thought it was a valid question. On the final time there i told the woman that it would have been much easier to go to Woodburn and get a matricula consular card and then, profusely and with obvious sarcasm, i apologized for not speaking Spanish and then told her what i thought of the whole process. She informed me that she was going to call security if i didn't leave. As i was leaving the desk i turned and asked her did she mean to call the DMV rent-a-cop or the Mexican Federales. Then i got out of there.... FAST!!!!. Needless to say, i don't think my daughter is too anxious to return with me to get her real license in about 6 months. It was something she needed to see, what is going on in this country and how 2 sets of priorities are at work in this country. I consider it my duty to point out the agenda going on in this country with the illegals, to her, so that she will not get caught blindsided in later years when she finds out that she doesn't have a country anymore, at least not a country that is looking out for her (an american citizen) rights.
