RICHMOND, Va. | Virginia's Department of Motor Vehicles is no longer accepting a federal document issued to immigrants as proof of residence for obtaining a driver's license.
In a crackdown on illegal immigration, Gov. Bob McDonnell ordered DMV to no longer consider Employment Authorization Documents evidence of an alien's legal presence in the country.
The move comes after a 23-year-old Bolivian national with drunken driving convictions in 2007 and 2008 was involved in an August car crash that killed a nun in Prince William County.
Authorities say Carlos Martinelly Montano had used the form to get a Virginia license even though he faced deportation proceedings.
Police say Montano was drunk at the time of last month's deadly crash.
