New York State To Issue Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants

The state of New York, will be joining the list of twelve other states plus Washington, D.C., that allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses, including California and Connecticut.

Shortly after the state Senate passed the controversial measure, the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

The law takes 180 days to go into effect, meaning the first licenses will be available in December 2019.
