Michigan Bill Targets Illegal Immigrant Marriage 6-23-2010

LANSING, Mich.A Michigan lawmaker plans legislation designed to stop illegal immigrants from getting marriage licenses.
The bills upcoming from Republican Rep. Dave Agema, of Grandville, would require marriage license applicants to show two forms of identification.
That could include state-issued ID cards, Social Security cards, birth certificates or other proof of residency.
A person who isn't a citizen could get a marriage license using a visa, passport or other proof of being in the U.S. legally.
The bills come after lawsuits in two west Michigan counties over Social Security card requirements that critics say were denying illegal immigrants marriage licenses.
The bills will face opposition and could be blocked in the Democratic-run House.
