Congressman Tom Reed, State Senator Tom O’Mara and State Senator Cathy Young, together issued a statement, condemning Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to give driver’s licenses to illegals.
Congressman Tom Reed:
“For Cuomo to support this bill is reckless. Giving drivers licenses to illegal immigrants is not fair for the men and women who immigrated here legally, for hardworking New York taxpayers or the Mothers who worry about the safety of their children in our neighborhoods,” Tom said. “This is why we are working to change the House rules so we can reform our immigration system responsibly and make it easier for bipartisan bills to pass.”
State Senator Tom O’Mara:
“Here we go in the new New York State. Governor Cuomo and his one-party-rules Legislature are getting ready to blow through stop signs trouncing the individual rights of hard-working, law-abiding, lifelong, responsible residents. Buckle up, look both ways, and hold on to your wallet, this state’s about to get taxed and turned upside down at breakneck speed.”
State Senator Cathy Young:
“All New Yorkers should be alarmed about the Governor’s support of a proposal that would allow illegal immigrants to apply for driver’s licenses.
Rewarding those who have broken our laws with the same rights as American citizens is fundamentally wrong. It is essentially a backdoor maneuver intended to allow those here illegally to vote in our elections.”
