WHERE IS ICE? Lines Pile Up at NY DMVs After Illegal Aliens are Now being Offered Driver’s Licenses (VIDEO)
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.
