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."
