Governor Cuomo is at it again. It seems he loves to help illegals and lawbreakers over his own constituents. Last night he signed legislation granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
The measure first passed in the state Senate by a 33-29 count, then Cuomo signed it into law “despite throwing supporters a last-minute curveball by asking the state’s top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns.”
Cuomo told WAMC radio “you could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people…California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.”
However, Underwood and her boss, Attorney General Tish James, “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 driver’s licenses. If this bill is enacted and challenged in court, we will vigorously defend it,’ James said.”
Illegals should feel doubly at ease; not only does a bill give them civil rights they should not have as non-civilians, but they also have the promise from the Attorney General that they will fight for their safety if anyone tries to challenge the bill.
The law takes 180 days to go into effect. It’s a great day to be an illegal immigrant in Cuomo-land.
