The Garden State is one step closer to becoming a third world enclave, rivaling Los Angeles and San Francisco, thanks to progressive Governor Phil Murphy who will sign a bill into law allowing Illegal aliens to acquire drivers’ licenses, which in reality translates into a backdoor to the voting booth, despite what despicable Democratic lawmakers in Trenton claim.
Murphy a big supporter of sanctuary cities has repeatedly asked the Democratically controlled legislator to push the bill through, after it was approved in the New Jersey Assembly and Senate during the final legislative session of the year.
The bill would allow the roughly 450.00 illegal aliens in New Jersey to obtain drivers’ licenses, with spotty verification as to their identity or place of birth, regarding rigid background checks from third world countries.
However “ironically” the bill will include “SAFEGUARDS IN PROTECTING THE IDENTITIES Of ILLEGAL ALIENS” from federal law enforcement agencies, attempting to ferret out potential felons or wanna-be terrorists within the illegal population, which no doubt will contribute to American citizens being victimized.
According to a leftist think tank organization called New Jersey Policy Perspective, over 338,000 illegal aliens would obtain driver’s licenses during the first three years, including over 220,000 low-income residents and former felons reentering society.
Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, a Democrat, told The Wall Street Journal, “The legislation advanced on the Assembly floor and by the Senate today is fair and responsible. It brings us one step closer to ensuring all motor vehicles and drivers are insured, thereby creating safer roadways for all New Jersey residents.”
However, the new legislation allows illegal aliens over the age of 16 to obtain driver’s licenses and learners’ permits, with foreign documents from drug invested countries like Mexico, where drug cartels easily forge documents for a fee, almost guaranteeing that a number of individuals getting New Jersey drivers’ licenses are not who they say they are, moreover it’s not clear within the bill if residency needs to be proven. The bill also does not require a Social Security number as a form of identification.
Republican Assemblyman Ron Dancer told the Wall Street Journal, “How does giving illegal immigrants, who we know have already broken the law once, an official government document going to make us safer?”
To that end Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf appearing Tuesday on Fox & Friends” said the new legislation would hamper their efforts in targeting criminal aliens for deportation.
“It’s very similar to what we see with sanctuary policies around the country that, again, are not protecting the communities and the law enforcement officers trying to do their jobs,” Wolf said. “And, that’s really concerning from a ‘protecting the homeland.’
Wolf said he thought that awarding illegal activity becomes an incentive for other illegal immigrants to try to enter the country.
“I would say that any time we reward illegal behavior, illegal activity, that’s problematic for us,” he concluded. “And what we have seen, particularly on the border, is that encourages more populations, more individuals, to come here illegally, which puts a larger strain on DHS’s capabilities to secure the border and the like.”
Moreover the legislation, I believe is a clever ruse as a backdoor to America’s voting booth, to perhaps effect the 2020 election cycle, similar to the desperate attempt by House Democrats.
Currently 13 states including the District of Columbia, allow illegal aliens to obtain drivers licenses, however under the constitutional authority of the 10th Amendment. Congress enacted REAL ID in 2005 creating standards for state-issued driver’s licenses, including evidence of lawful status, which one would conclude would also include citizenship.
