Claro que si: New York approves driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

I’m sure there will be no chance of fraud involved with this move. Oh wait…

From NY Post: A loophole in the new law granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants could allow hundreds of thousands of people to fraudulently register to vote in New York, according to critics, the state Board of Elections and the bill’s own sponsor.

“[A] major concern is that many states, including New York, use their DMVs to enroll voters. Since New York does not have voter-identification laws like the majority of other states do, this bill increases the potential for voter fraud,” state Sen. Republican ¬M inority Leader John Flanagan (R–Suffolk) said Tuesday.

“This means that New York will soon have the most radical, open-ended law in the entire nation.”

The Green Light Bill, which passed the Senate 33-29 Monday and was signed by Gov. Cuomo, allows illegal immigrants to obtain “standard” state drivers’ licenses that can be used for identification and to board domestic flights.

But it is also the sole document required to register to vote, according to officials.

Even legislative sponsor Luis Sepúlveda (D-Bronx) admitted the provision could be abused. “Theoretically, they could have the ability to vote,” he said while arguing for the bill during a Monday hearing in Albany.

Voters need only provide a driver’s-license number to register to vote, according to BOE spokesman John Conklin. “If you have a driver’s license number, you basically stop there,” Conklin told The Post Tuesday of the vetting process.

Registrants are required to check a box swearing they are eligible to vote in the US, but “it’s ¬basically an honor system,” he said.

Anyone who fraudulently fills out a voter form is subject to state fines of up to $5,000 and four years in prison — as well as potential removal from the country by the feds, BOE reps said.

Sepúlveda said anyone who wants to commit voter fraud already can — and has noted that instances are extremely rare. “Anybody could theoretically commit voter fraud,” he said. “You could get a form and register to vote, put any name — a teenager could get a form . . . there’s nothing that is 100 percent foolproof.”

Meanwhile, Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns — who is responsible for processing county driver’s licenses — said Tuesday he’d ignore the law and file a legal challenge. “I will not be granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, he wrote in a letter to the Erie County Law Department.

The state DMV did not respond to requests for comment.

This has to be fake news! After I retired from the Navy we moved to NY state. My wife and I had to go back to the DMV more than once because of the required paperwork needed to get our NY driver’s licenses. It was all about NY wanting to be 100% certain I was who I said I was. Now you’re gonna tell me that if I show them my water carrying vessels to prove I’m here illegally I can get a license?

This is a DIRECT THREAT to the citizens of and visitors to New York State: It would only be a matter of time before accidents and injuries mount. Police overtime would spike, hospital bills would mount and more heart-breaking stories would arise. Gov. Eliot Spitzer was hounded out of office because of this, in part. This would also pose a direct threat to my income: As Uber and other rideshare platforms would hire more drivers, eventually, my income would go down. (It already has due to Gov. Cuomo’s congestion-pricing tacked onto every call that starts, ends or goes through Manhattan).… Read more »

Well, maybe there is an upside to this. President Trump said that ICE is going to start deporting millions of illegal aliens next week. Thanks to this new law, ICE will know where to find them?

This was all over the local “news” here yesterday (I’m only about 40 miles from Albany), I kept thinking this is a sick joke. Increases the potential for voter fraud? The whole point of this bill is to increase voter fraud. You know the illegals will be voting demonoid, all they have to do is flash their new drivers license. Andy “Son of Lucifer” Cuomo says it’s to make roads and highways safer. Sure it is. I don’t think he’d lie about something like that

There is no longer any pretense of “doing the right thing”. This is purely “winning” at any cost. Cheating is fine……….for them. Some may have noticed that they are censoring conservatives left and right and now this?

This is another way to stuff a ballot box, pure and simple.

He’s a charmer all around. He’s definitely doing his part for his owners:

I think they might nominate him for president in 2024. Off the charts for pure evil and corruption, he is a “man of force”. As opposed to Joey Lunch Bucket, a man of farce, who’s showing clear indications of dementia. As well the rest of the fruitcake munchkins who are supposedly running. My sense is that they are conceding 2020. That could change of course, it’s early. If Son of Lucifer runs in 2024 he has a good chance of “winning”. Who will oppose him? Say what we will about Trump, he’s got personality. So we’d better make hay while… Read more »

Cuomo again shows he is living proof that his father had anal sex at least once. He signed it in the middle of the night just like they passed NY-SAFE, the gun law that only screws honest gun owners. I applaud Michael Kearns for not issuing drivers licenses to ILLEGAL ALIENS!! Hey Cuomo what part of ILLEGAL don’t you get??? Ohh that’s right… They will register to VOTE at the same time to make sure you and all the liberal shitbags stay in office…

With the influence NY has on elections, combined with the “motor voter law,” this is a sad day for America.
