DeStefano Votes against Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants

A statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I,Ref-Medford)on the passage of the Green Light Bill.

“We are in the final stretch of the legislative session, a time when our legislators should be working to make meaningful change and relieving residents and businesses of burdensome taxes and regulations. Instead, state Majority has chosen to waste our time granting driving privileges to illegal immigrants. Majority politicians want New York to lead the way on social reform and immigration issues, when in reality New York is leading the way on the highest taxes in the nation, out-migration and the worst business climate. If we continue down this path, the only people left in the state will be those that benefit from this agenda—illegal immigrants.”
