ATLANTA Illegal immigrants who are granted permission to stay in the country under an Obama administration policy announced in June will be eligible for drivers licenses in Georgia, the states attorney general wrote in a letter to the governor.
While I do not agree with the actions of the President in issuing the directive, it has been implemented by the Department of Homeland Security, USCIS, and state law recognizes the approval of deferred action status as a basis for issuing a temporary drivers license, Attorney General Sam Olens, a Republican, wrote in a letter obtained Thursday by The Associated Press...

Let them expire and have to be renewed every 35 days. That way when we toss Obama and start enforcing immigration law again we’ll know we can find them all at the DMV.
Well, I certainly hope that these “temporary” driving licenses have the words ILLEGAL ALIEN indelibly marked onto the licenses. And I hope that the Georgia DMV’s databases and record formats are modified to have this “illegal alien” status as a ready identifier.
The problem is, that once the illegals get licenses, they will then be able to vote.
It is time that Nathan Deal stood up like Jan Brewer in Arizona, but I’m sure not holding my breath!
I agree.This is bullcrap.
Nathan Deal doesn't appear to have that flexibility.
Non-citizens could already get driver's licenses in GA but couldn't vote. This shouldn't complicate things for voting since this case would be covered by existing law and procedure.
Let’s hope that the Motor-Voter laws won’t apply to them.
