NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — A county clerk in Western New York is challenging a new state law to authorize driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.
Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns says he will file the lawsuit and seek an injunction to lock the Green Light Bill while it’s reviewed by the courts.
The bill passed the legislature and was signed into law last month. Supporters of the measure say they expected a lawsuit and carefully crafted the law to withstand a legal challenge.
Twelve states already have similar laws.
