Va. AG Backs DMV Refusal to Accept Permit

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is not required to accept a federal work permit as proof that a driver's license applicant is legally in the U.S., state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said in an official opinion.

DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb requested the opinion, which Cuccinelli issued a little more than two months after the agency temporarily quit accepting Employee Authorization Documents as proof of legal status. The Department of Homeland Security issues the document to people who are temporarily in the U.S. and looking for work.

"Individuals who have the EAD now need another document to verify legal presence," DMV spokeswoman Pam Goheen said Monday. About 20 other federal documents are still accepted.
