-Liberal Democrat Cobb Endorses Driver’s Licenses for Illegal immigrants Opposed by Stefanik, Majority of New Yorkers

“On Saturday, the campaign of U.S. Rep. Elise M. Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, announced that Ms. Stefanik was joining a coalition of state groups opposing a proposal to allow undocumented immigrants in New York to obtain drivers licenses.”

“Ms. Stefanik joined the New York State Republican and Conservative Parties, as well as north country Republican state senators and Assembly members, in opposing the proposal, along with a proposal to oppose sanctuary cities.”“The reckless immigration agenda of Democrats in Albany and in Washington, DC would make the already hard job of law enforcement officers even harder by implementing state policies that circumvent federal policy,” Ms. Stefanik was quoted as saying in a press release. “Let me be clear: I oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, any expansion of sanctuary cities in NY, or any amnesty to illegal immigrants.”

“’It is disappointing that my opponent supports giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, but has yet to stand up for what she believes in and to publicly endorse the new immigration policy of her own party,’ Ms. Stefanik was quoted as saying.”

“Ms. Cobb’s campaign responded by saying she thinks people will be safer if all New York drivers are licensed — an argument supporters have made for giving undocumented immigrants access to licenses.”
