Rep. Katko speaking out against NYS proposal for undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses

Local News

(WSYR-TV) — In regards to a recent legislative proposal that would allow illegal immigrants to have New York State Driver’s Licenses, Rep. John Katko is speaking out against the idea.

“I oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. Rather than legitimizing illegal immigration, policy makers at all levels of government should be focused on creating a comprehensive solution on immigration that balances the needs of our economy, immigrants and their families, and strong national security. 

“Efforts like this one in New York State are a distraction from that effort, and could have adverse effects on fraud prevention, identity theft, and immigration enforcement.”  — Rep. John Katko
