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.

They have to go back.
“Jackass facilitating voter fraud.”
Yup, liberals will now win NY and CA by a zillion %.
RE: Governor Andrew?
That’s in the title of the article.
It might be in the title of the article but there is no Gov Andrew. Gov. Cuomo or Andrew Cuomo.
Wasn’t there a Senator and Sec. of State Clinton? Why do we keep calling her Hillary?
How about red states passing legislation in their respective states that refuses to recognize or even accept blue state driver licenses because they do not properly or legally attest to who the person presenting it really is. The details would need to be worked out but that would put a hurt on the pandering blue states that partake in this scam. At least it would be a start.
Motor Voter baby. That’s what this is about. They are driving anyway.
Was she called Senator Hillary? No? Didn’t think so.
Fine, use the driver’s licence to track them down.
A “Pathway to Citizenship” AND VOTING!
Good luck New York, you deserve it!
LOL! Countin’ down the days!
Not much longer for me. I just want to escape before the housing markets crash.
Too late for chunks of Upstate.
Sure, folks can afford the homes, but fewer and fewer buyers are nuts enough to want to assume four and five figure annual property taxes...
Very good idea. Also, since all then will have driver’s licenses, all attempting to vote can be required to show that as the photo ID needed, or the non-driver photo ID option, and all can in future prove their citizenship to ICE at the same time with E-Verify, or something like it: immediate arrest if attempting to illegally vote, deportation within the week after.
When folks go to vote, just yell “La Migra” while at the polling place, then look to see if anyone runs.
That could work. The word needs to get out everywhere that there will be ICE at every polling booth.
Governor Cuomo wants to give drivers licenses to ILLEGAL aliens. Dems always argue theyre not illegal, theyre undocumented. So why do they have to have a license? Are Dems admitting undocumented drivers are committing a crime?
