New York politicians push legislation to allow undocumented immigrants to apply for a driver's license

The number of deported immigrants under President Obama is approaching the 2 million mark and immigration reform has become once again no more than a rapidly-fading illusion. Yet, here in New York, some politicians and community leaders are working to alleviate the immigrants’ situation by allowing the undocumented to legally apply for a driver’s license. “A driver’s license will provide undocumented immigrants much more employment flexibility,” said state Sen. José Peralta who, along with Sen. Adriano Espaillat and with the support of Make the Road New York and other community groups, introduced legislation last October to provide undocumented New Yorkers access to driver’s licenses. Espaillat had introduced a similar bill before that would have granted driving privileges only to DREAMers. “My bill includes everyone and Espaillat supports it,” Peralta said.

Illeals are undocumented until they need documents that will provide them with something and out come their documents the day before they did not have any. It's hard to imagine with unemployment as high as it is, people in New York think its a wonderful idea to give illegals drivers licenses so they can steal jobs from Americans.How are they suppose demonstrate they have not been convicted of a felony crime ,is this on the honor system ?Now New York will be ridden with illegals from across America headed to New York for drivers licenses.Be one of these 2000 illegals who live at that one address where all the tax refunds go too.

I read a blog comment somewhere that Mike Bloomberg wondered why the Mexicans cross the border into the southwest. He wondered why dont they just teleport themselves into NYC’s sanctuary city.

Check out the names of these state traitors-—er, senators: José Peralta and Adriano Espaillat. Where do their loyalties lie? Certainly NOT with the NY taxpayers who will have to pay for this illiterate needy horde sucking up tax dollars like nobody’s business and giving little but basic day laboring services for it.

Obama has already handed out half a million documents to illegals. What else do they need? Canonization certificates?

The article says that Obama deported 2 million illegals. If that’s true, then there are only 9 million left in the US?

Just think... It a real effort was made, we could deport at least 3-4 million a year. In less then 10 years, ALL illegals would be deported. And the politicians say it couldn’t be done.

New York is far from the only sanctuary city.

“Some of the 31 American cities are Washington, D.C.; New York City; Jersey City; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Santa Ana; San Diego; San Jose; Oakland; Salt Lake City; El Paso; Houston; Detroit; Chicago; Minneapolis; Miami; Denver; Baltimore; Seattle; Portland, Oregon; New Haven; Somerville; Cambridge; Portland, Maine; and Tulsa.”

Shouldn’t that putz, Holder, being suing them for doing the Federal government’s job? If it’s “unconstitutional” for Arizonans to throw them out of our state, it sure as hell is “unconstitutional” for the leftwing bozos in New Yawk to issue them a driver’s license. Besides, America already has enough drunks out there driving on our roads. We don’t need to be importing them.

It’ll never happen. New York floated this drivers license idea 7-8 years ago and it sank like submarine with screen doors.
