REPORT: County clerks in NY refuse to follow new law giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens [VIDEO]
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by BUFFALONEWS.COM:
Erie County Clerk Michael “Mickey” Kearns took his first legal step to fight a new state law that allows immigrants in the country illegally to obtain a New York State driver’s license.
Kearns sent a letter to the Erie County Attorney’s Office on Tuesday seeking legal representation.
The article goes on to state the following:
“As I understand it, this Act requires that, as an agent of the Department of Motor Vehicles, I will be compelled to give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants,” he wrote. “I will not be granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.”
He wants a legal determination from federal court as to what his rights are as clerk and whether he could be compelled to enforce the state law over what he views as a violation of federal law.
However, Kearns isn’t the only one. A local NBC News reporter tweeted the following report, saying, ” Local county clerks across the state are saying they will not issue driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants. The bill was signed by Gov. Cuomo on Monday.”

The NYS Legislature and Gov. Cuomo were absolutely wrong to create a new law this evening to give driver’s licenses to people illegally in our country. This decision is incredibly irresponsible. RT if you also disagree with this new law!
