DeStefano Condemns Green Light Law

A statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I,Ref-Medford)

“The governor’s attempt to restrict DMV database access to our federal law enforcement agencies through the Green Light Law jeopardizes the public safety of our children and families. Information sharing between all levels of law enforcement is crucial in protecting our citizens. This national security issue needs to be fixed now.

“About 70 percent of joint terrorism task force disruptions stem from arrests for immigration violations, yet the state is restricting crucial information from the agencies that protect us. Progressive Majority politicians continue to prove that they only care about illegal immigrants and advancing their own far-reaching agenda. It’s time to put the law-abiding New York residents first once again.”
