SENATOR MARTINS: BILL GIVING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TAXPAYER FUNDED PUBLIC ASSISTANCE BENEFITS & THE RIGHT TO VOTE AN INSULT TO OVERTAXED NASSAU FAMILIES

     “I strongly oppose the Senate Democrats' proposal to give illegal immigrants New York State citizenship including taxpayer funded public assistance benefits and the right to vote, serve on juries, run for public office, obtain a driver’s license, and hold professional licenses. It is an insult to hardworking, overtaxed families in Nassau County and New York State, but it's in addition to Senate Democrats' plan to provide illegal immigrants with taxpayer funded college tuition assistance, even though 3 out of 4 current New York students do not qualify for that same benefit.
