Deadline to Prove Citizenship Extended by Maryland MVA for License Holders

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration has extended the deadline for immigrants with commercial driver's license to prove U.S. citizenship or residency.
    
The agency had warned hundreds of commercial drivers that their licenses would be canceled unless they proved their citizenship or residency by Monday. License holders now have until Nov. 15 to respond.
    
The new deadline comes after the MVA realized that it had mistakenly granted the licenses to immigrants without permanent legal status. The agency had sent notices to drivers who have work permits through a federal "Temporary Protected Status" program, which gives immigrants permission to work in the United States.
    
MVA spokesman Buel Young says the agency is trying to determine if it can legally replace the immigrants' current licenses.
