New law takes effect concerning immigrant licenses


A new law will take effect Wednesday regarding Maryland identification cards and driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.

The new law stems from a 2009 Maryland program that created a “two-tiered” license for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.  Those who did not achieve lawful status or obtain a social security number by the deadline were allowed to get a driver’s license under the program’s bylaws.

In order to apply for the second-tier license immigrants must produce a valid form of identification, pass written and road tests and produce two years worth of state income tax filings.
