Cincinnati (AP) -- A group representing Hispanic citizens is suing Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland to stop the state from canceling vehicle registrations for thousands of people who cannot provide proof of legal U.S. residency.

The League of United Latin American Citizens said Tuesday it has filed a lawsuit against Strickland and other state officials.

The state sent notices in October to owners of some 47,000 motor vehicles that their vehicle registrations will be canceled if they do not provide proof of residency by Dec. 8.

The group says many of its members are hardworking people who rely on their cars to get to work and could lose their jobs if the policy is enforced.
