New Republican Bill Would Punish States That Give Driver’s License to Illegal Aliens

A new bill sponsored by Republicans would cut funding that goes to states that grant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.

The bill is called the “Stop Greenlighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act,” and would end funding to those states from a program that issues federal criminal justice funding from the Department of Justice. . .

“Tennesseans know all too well what can happen when illegal immigrants are granted driver licenses,” said a statement by [Marsha] Blackburn.

“While Tennessee and many other states prohibit driver licenses for illegal aliens, a growing number of states are moving in the opposite direction and unleashing dangerous open borders policies. Immigrants must follow the proper federal process and obtain citizenship or lawful status before obtaining a state driver license,” she added. . .

Proponents of laws that grant driver’s licenses to illegals say that such policies would allow them to obtain insurance and put citizens in less risk. Critics argue that it rewards criminality.
