Thousands of illegal aliens lined up outside New York Department of Motor Vehicle offices after a judge denied a challenge to the law giving illegals the ability to obtain driver’s licenses.
In New York:
“The law allows immigrants to use foreign-issued documents to prove their identity and age, and would not require a valid Social Security number to obtain a driver’s license in the state,” reported the Hill.
New York Attorney General Letitia James hailed the judge’s decision, noting that it was the second time a judge has dismissed challenges.
“We expect all public officials to comply with the law, and, as the state’s attorney and chief law enforcement officer, I will continue to vigorously defend it,” James said in a prepared statement.

Across the river, in New Jersey:
Until Thursday, New York was the latest in a number of states to give illegal aliens the ability to obtain driver’s licenses.
However, on Thursday, New Jersey’s Democrat governor Phil Murray signed into law a bill giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens residing in the state.
New Jersey immigrants celebrated Monday after lawmakers voted to allow immigrants who cannot prove they're in the country legally to get driver's licenses. https://t.co/hh1smawQkb [Video: @CosechaMovement] pic.twitter.com/3MTV73Ku7J
