Since the new Senate Majority has taken over, they have continually found more ways to put the interests of Governor Cuomo and his downstate allies above reason and above the needs of Upstate New York.
First, let me be clear, I am in full support of finding a federal solution to undocumented immigration, including a clearer and easier path to citizenship. However, what I cannot support is New York State disobeying Federal laws.
Do not be mistaken, advocates who support issuing New York State Drivers Licenses to undocumented immigrants have said that they will use it as a way to undermine federal agents from enforcing our immigration laws. We are all bound to follow the law, even the ones we disagree with, until we can change it.
