DMV to verify immigration status for ODL and ID cards.

KGW --

The Oregon department of transportation will begin verifying immigration status for driver's license applications or identification cards at it's offices beginning January 1, 2009 using a Federal Dept of Homeland Security program called SAVE, which stands for systematic alien verification for entitlements.

Additionally, the state will not issue driving privileges or ID cards to outlook and whose immigration status cannot verified. However, temporary licenses may be issued to applicants that meet all other Oregon driver's license requirements in order to allow time to resolve the problem.

Really! Care to bet that this won't last long.
