Illegal Aliens Get DMV and Voting Perks in New York

Ever go to a Department of Motor Vehicles office without the proper paperwork? You know, an out-of-date document or no picture ID. If you did, what do you think the workers there would do?

Kindly and efficiently give you your license, blithely ignoring the missing bumf? Probably not. Unless, that is, you are an illegal alien in New York state in 180 days. Then not only will you get a driver’s license, you’ll obtain soooo much more.

What actual citizens do not receive —special treatment from the joyous people who staff your DMV— illegals aliens are about to gain. That would be a waiver on expiration dates and the use of current or expired foreign sources of identification to get state IDs and licenses. Interestingly, and I would guess intentionally, these items can be used to register to vote.

Which is the real point of the whole thing.

Monday night, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill enacting the new measure. He joins twelve other far-left states that have done the same. The law takes six months to go into effect. Just in time for the 2020 elections. Then it should be a piece of cake for anyone who cannot get real ID to effortlessly get the legit stuff in New York. Which makes rampant voter fraud easy peasy. Another beautiful benefit of living in the Empire of Dumb state.

No doubt this will be a boon to terrorists, identity thieves, and anyone else who is rather touchy about people knowing who they really are but who also may have a need to, oh, let’s just say…buy the materials to blow something up.

You’d think New York of all places would be sensitive to this. But nahhhhh.

Another massacre of thousands of innocent Americans is a small price to pay to tug your forelock and bow low before the altar of multiculty politics. If as a result taxpaying NY state citizens get shoved to the back of the DMV line or are flooded with illegal votes? Well, who cares? Most of them elected these people to office and thus they earned it.

Which brings to mind the sainted H.L.’s old maxim, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

When the inevitable happens and there is not one honest election result left in the state because of this insane law, New Yorkers will be shtupped even harder. And they won’t get dinner and a Broadway show first.
