RICHMOND (WWBT) - Governor Bob McDonnell is taking on illegal immigration in Virginia. This as an illegal immigrant charged with drunk driving and suspected of killing a Richmond nun and injuring two others faces new charges.

A grand jury indicted the illegal immigrant last night. He now faces felony murder, malicious wounding and driving with a revoked license after a crash that killed Sister Denise Mosier and injured two other nuns last month.

It's that same crash that is changing the way illegal immigrants get a driver's license in Virginia.

Governor Bob McDonnell has ordered the DMV to no longer consider employment authorization documents as proof of who they are.

That document is how Carlos Montano got a Virginia identification even though he was about to be deported.

In a statement McDonnell said that is the problem "Virginia law is clear in the requirement that an individual be lawfully in the United States to be eligible for an identification card or to have the privilege to drive."

This move by the governor is only temporary. The attorney general must sign off on it before it goes before the General Assembly.
