The Hill reported on Friday, December 13, 2019 that a federal judge rejected a challenge to a law that will allow New York to hand out driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
This law went into effect on Monday, December 16, 2019,
The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported that the law faced its second challenge in court.
U.S. District Judge Gary Sharpe ruled against Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola, declaring he lacked the legal capacity to advance the lawsuit against the New York state government over the new law.
The lawsuit was thrown without the judge ruling on the law’s merits. It represented the last change to block the law before state Department of Motor Vehicles offices opened on Monday, according to the news outlet’s report.
At least three other lawsuits are challenging this law and are either pending or on appeal.
Nevertheless, the law is now being implemented today.
This new law allows immigrants to show foreign-issued documents to prove their identity and age. Additionally, it would not require a valid Social Security number to acquire a driver’s license in the state.
New York Attorney General Letitia James praised the judge’s decision, pointing out that it was the second time a judge has tossed out challenges.
“We expect all public officials to comply with the law, and, as the state’s attorney and chief law enforcement officer, I will continue to vigorously defend it,” James declared in a prepared statement.
Now, The Hill tweeted about the long lines forming to acquire driver’s licenses across New York.
The news outlet posted, “Lines to apply for New York driver’s licenses go as far as around the block on the first day undocumented immigrants can apply for them” on the first day illegal aliens were eligible to acquire driver’s licenses.

New York and other blue states prefer to engage in various forms of anarcho-tyranny such as giving illegal aliens more leeway in occupying jurisdictions that they should have never entered in the first place.
Apart from the illegality of these actions, these states are opening up the door for repeated abuses and the eventual collapse of order as more illegals are encouraged to flood into these states thanks to lax enforcement policies.
President Trump can make things right by threatening to cut off funding to states who are derelict in their responsibility of turning in illegal aliens to proper authorities.
More importantly, he can vastly overhaul U.S. migration policy by switching to a skill-based immigration system, tightening up border security, cracking down on sanctuary cities, and getting rid of magnets such as chain migration and birthright citizenship.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
