SIGN THE PETITION
Demand federal action to prevent New York State’s driver’s license law for illegal immigrants.
Demand Federal Action
Several members of New York State’s Congressional Delegation have called on the Attorney General and the U.S. Department of Justice to review the legality of the state’s law providing illegal immigrants with driver’s licenses, called the Green Light law.
One specific provision of the law prevents the Department of Motor Vehicles from retaining immigrants’ applications for driver’s licenses, which is the usual protocol for DMV when handling license applications. Other concerns have been raised about the potential for voter fraud because of a voter registration question on the driver’s license application.
If it’s found that the law violates state or federal requirements, the Members of Congress requested that the Department of Justice initiate federal litigation to block the its implementation. The law is scheduled to take effect in December.
Despite calls from a bipartisan group of state officials calling for action to prevent illegal immigrants from receiving driver’s licenses, Max Rose refused to join this effort seeking Department of Justice review and intervention.
Even though Max Rose refused to stand up against the state’s Green Light law, you can Sign the Petition calling for the federal government to act.
