“I believe in driver’s licenses for all. I believe that all New Yorkers, regardless of documentation status, need to be able to get a driver’s license the right way.” New York City Mayor William deBlasio, and 2020 Presidential candidate, June 18, 2019.
The question that begs to be asked is in response to deBlasio’s question: What is the “right way?”
So, here is one of the worst mayors in New York City history, if not the worst, along with not even being recognized as a legitimate Presidential candidate, getting his wish and answering his own question. As usual, deBlasio is putting the needs of illegal immigrants ahead of running NYC, which he has run into the ground with his failing progressive platform.
On Monday night, June 17, 2019, New York State, my home, approved the issuing of driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, as extremist liberal Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed the bill. New York State became the thirteenth state to do so. Essentially, this is rewarding the breaking of Federal immigration laws by illegal immigrants who snuck into the United States, with legally issued documents. This action demonstrates the continued action of the authoritarian, orthodox extremist liberal socialist left, as they pander for votes that illegal immigrants would illegally give them in the 2020 Presidential Election.
The twelve states, plus newly minted New York, along with the District of Columbia, have enacted laws to allow “unauthorized,” their wording, or illegal immigrants, to obtain a driver’s license. These states are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Vermont and Washington. The aforementioned states are the most liberal in the Union. As a matter of fact, Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA), in office since January 2019, is giving Cuomo a run for the money as to who is pushing the authoritarian, unhinged, orthodox, progressive agenda the furthest left. California also has ratified the funding of offering free medical care to illegal immigrants, as Los Angeles and San Francisco loss their quality of life. Guess how “free” is being supported?
On a side note, it was reported that a large number of illegal immigrants illegally voted in the 2016 Presidential Election, most likely for the treasonous scoundrel, and two time loser, Hillary Clinton. The issuance of driver’s licenses further continues the encouragement of illegal immigrants to try to enter the country illegally, despite not being citizens. This is a key reason as to why voter identification must be passed into law and why the Democratic Obstructionist National Peoples Socialist Party is staunchly against it.The operative word is illegal.
The measure to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants was ratified by the NY Senate, by a 33-29 count, often with a demonstration of heated remarks from both sides of the aisle during the floor vote. This obviously was not a bipartisan vote, despite an overwhelming majority of New Yorkers stating that they were against the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. As usual, government did not adhere to the will of the people who voted them into office, whether on the state or Federal levels.
Here is an interesting scenario: let’s say an American citizen decided to sneak into another country, Russia for example. Collusion? They would not be offered entitlements and free medical care, much less legal documentation, such as the aforementioned driver’s license that are given in the United States. There is no doubt that the unhinged, orthodox extremists of the liberal socialist left are more concerned with catering to illegals than veterans, American Indians and the 16,000,000 American children living under the poverty line.
I do wonder how non-English speaking and reading illegals will not only be able pass the written exam, but follow directions in English during the road test. If they are in fact granted a driver’s license, how do they read signs? Back to Russia as an example, what simple driving command is this: “стоп?” If you are not literate in Russian, you could very well receive a number of summonses or end up in car accident
NY State Senator Kevin Thomas (D-Levitown) stated that “States cannot really stop ICE from accessing the documents,” adding he came to that conclusion after researching the issue. “Given how Trump is going around rounding people up, I have a lot of anxiety” about enacting the legislation. So, here we have a local liberal Democrat who supports breaking Federal laws regarding illegal immigration and law enforcement that focuses on the criminal element. What Senator Thomas is remiss in addressing is the invasion of illegal immigrants illegally entering the United States at the southern border. What he also failed to mention that despite receiving court dates to determine their legal status, over 90% of them are no-shows and disappear into the country never to be seen again. That affects everyone. By breaking immigration law, or committing a crime, they are subject to arrest, incarceration and deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The law takes 180 days to go into effect, meaning the first licenses will be available in December. The effects will include non-English speaking and reading drivers on the road, along with a guaranteed increase in automobile insurance. The ones I feel sorry for are the people who are legally following the laws in order to be eligible for American citizenship, which also costs a small fortune.
Lastly, the above Russian word is “stop.” Good luck driving in New York.
