Breitbart: New York Mulls Bill Giving Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens

A New York assemblyman introduced legislation yesterday that if passed, would allow approximately 150,000 in New York City to get a driver’s license. Statewide, 265,000 would be eligible.

Assemblyman Francisco P. Moya (D-Queens) filed the bill on January 31 (A04050) that would give illegal aliens the right to legally drive. The bill also expressly states that the license could “be used as legal identification.”

Just a few days ago, State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-California) wrote an article for Breitbart News entitled, “California’s Recipe for Voter Fraud on a Massive Scale” that explained one of the ways you accomplish massive voter fraud – “Spend millions of taxpayer dollars handing out Drivers Licenses to millions of people illegally present in the state (with an asterisk stating, ‘Federal Limits Apply’).” The next step is to “Pass a law requiring everyone who has a California Drivers License to be ‘automatically’ registered to vote—including illegal aliens.”

According to the reports of New York City Controller Scott Stringer and the Fiscal Policy Institute, “150,000 undocumented immigrants [in New York City] would be likely to obtain licenses if the law was changed to allow it,” the New York Daily News reported.

The publication also reported that there are 525,000 illegal immigrants who have reached the age of 16 years in New York City and based on “signups in other states the report predicts that they would apply for licenses at half the rate of the 57% of New Yorkers overall who have them.”

Breitbart News reported in February 2016 that California issued driver licenses to more than a half million illegal aliens (605,000) in 2015. This was the first year that illegal immigrants were eligible for driving certification in California. California Assembly Bill 60 (AB-60) was implemented on January 2, 2o15.

“The proposed law will act like yet another incentive for aliens looking to cross our borders illegally. These kinds of privileges should be given only to citizens and those who’ve come here lawfully and who respect our sovereignty,” Dale Wilcox, executive director and general counsel for the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) told Breitbart Texas. … Read the full story by Lana Shadwick.
