Loophole allowed illegal immigrants to register vehicles in Ohio

Randy Ludlow of The Columbus Dispatch revealed "a loophole in an Ohio policy allowed thousands of undocumented immigrants to register cars and get license plates even though many did not have valid Social Security numbers or car insurance."  He reported that Ohio officials delayed a crackdown on illegal immigrants registering their vehicles with fraudulent power-of-attorney forms after the state's public safety director met with a group of Latino business owners concerned about the impact of the move on their bottom lines. The people with whom the director met included "runners," legal U.S. residents who charged undocumented workers fees of $100 or more to register their vehicles.
