Skip to comments.New York Gov. Andrew signs bill granting illegal immigrants driverís licenses

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday night signed legislation granting drivers licenses to illegal immigrants shortly after the controversial measure passed the state Senate.
Cuomos action came despite throwing supporters a last-minute curveball by asking the states top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns threatening to veto it if he didnt like her assessment.
You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people, Cuomo said on WAMC radio. California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.
But Underwoods boss, Attorney General Tish James, later released a statement amid the Monday-night vote arguing that the bill is legally sound.
The legislation is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for drivers licenses. If this bill is enacted and challenged in court, we will vigorously defend it, she said.
The law takes 180 days to go into effect, meaning the first licenses will be available in December.
The measure on Monday passed the state Senate by a 33-29 count, often eliciting emotional remarks from both sides of the aisle during the floor vote.

Efectively guarantees the disenfranchisement of all the conservative upstate votes.
Upstate will get the last laugh after NYS loses another couple of House seats.
And be the 1st 5000 illegals to be caller # 9 for a free car!!!
When you have a drivers license on the database for the dmv there is a spot to register to vote.
He has disenfranchised us a long time ago. This state is trying to beat California!
Illegal alien voting is what this is about.
Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement does NOT include providing drivers licenses to illegal aliens. It’s not on the The List.
The list goes like this -
1) southern barrier;
2) require eVerify to hire;
3) end all chain migration;
4) birthright per Minor v. Happersett (plural parents);
5) end work visas;
6) 10-year moratorium on all new applications for citizenship (40 years to allow workplace automation effects on downsizing population)
7) demonstrate English proficiency to acquire citizenship and pass civics test.
Enactment of these provisions will motivate illegal aliens to SELF-deport.
Also consider reciprocation of the laws of the countries of origin of the illegal aliens. For example, Mexico doesnt allow land ownership or voting to immigrants, and doesnt honor birthright citizenship like its citizens expect from the U.S. We should offer the same deal to them.
Upstate didnt vote for any of this.
The New York state senate is a fraud. Unlike the US Senate it is chosen by population not area. Criminal and made that way by the US Supreme Court back half a century or more ago
FWIW, I think it’s more about the upcoming census.
Demand New York residence provide a Passport to fly.
Oh, I know Upstate didn’t vote for this.
But when NYS loses another House seat or two after the next census, and therefore has even less power in the chamber with the power of the purse, Upstate won’t be shedding any tears for Albany.
We’ll be pleased for the rest of nation while more of us plan our escape from NY.
Theres Method in the Madness. Something is Rotten in the State of New York.
So, with Motor voter these illegals will vote in the general election.
I believe the U.S. won’t make it pass 2050.
Thats my plan. Escape from NY
More potential for the national popular vote scam.
Blue states seem to be determined to granting voting rights to non-citizens. Such states already were voting overwhelmingly for Dems in the US Congress. If they got rid of the Electoral College we would never see a GOP POTUS elected again.
Oh, boy! Now they can vote in local elections, such as for the Electoral College. Dems will carry New York in a walk./s
Jackass facilitating voter fraud.
