TRENTON-New Jersey’s Democrat legislators are one step closer to make driver’s licenses for illegal aliens a reality. The move is part of Phil Murphy’s plan for equality across the state. On December 16th the majority held Democrat State Senate will vote on the bill. Murphy is hoping to sign the bill into law in January of 2020.
According to the State of New Jersey, the bill would create two categories of driver’s licenses and identification cards; allow residents unable to prove lawful presence in US to receive permits, and standard driver’s licenses or identification cards; permits MVC to increase certain fees.
Hirsh Singh, who is challenging U.S. Senator Cory Booker’s seat in Washington, D.C. said today the legislation will have a negative impact on New Jersey residents.
“Allowing illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license in NJ will irreversibly ruin our state and permanently turn NJ into a Sanctuary State. We must stop this,” Singh said. “If Governor Murphy gets his way New Jersey will be flooded by illegals looking for driver’s licenses…and we know what that means.”
While legal citizens of New Jersey will have to provide six points of proof for a driver’s license, illegals only have to show two documents and a social security number…or not a social security number if they are not eligible to obtain one.
“As a condition for obtaining a standard license, two documents providing satisfactory proof that the person is a New Jersey resident and proof of the person’s social security number,” the bill reads. “If the person does not have a social security number, the person shall indicate, in a manner prescribed by the commission, that the person is not eligible to receive a social security number.”
