Senator Flanagan Voices His Opposition To Illegal Immigrant Rights Legislation

Measure Pushed by Senate Democrats Would Become Law if Conference is Handed Keys to the Chamber

Senator John Flanagan (2nd Senate District) today voiced his strong opposition to a plan sponsored by the Senate Democrats that would provide illegal immigrants with the right to vote, to run for office and to obtain a driver’s license.  The plan, which is known as “New York Is Home”, would also provide them with access to college aid and make them immediately eligible for taxpayer-funded welfare benefits, driving up property and state taxes.



During the 2014 Legislative Session, several bills were enacted to address important health issues. This report summarizes some of these measures, and gives website addresses where you can obtain more information on these topics.
