Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) is exposing Assembly Bill 10129, sponsored by Assembly Democrats, that would allow illegal aliens in New York State to receive state benefits, obtain driver’s licenses, vote in state elections, and run for office. McLaughlin is outraged that New York’s Governor refuses to comment on whether he supports this outrageous legislation or not. It is completely unacceptable for this Governor to refuse to comment.
“Gov. Cuomo and his Democrat allies are spitting in the face of every man, woman, and child that was affected by the September 11 attacks,” McLaughlin said. “By allowing illegal immigrants the same privileges as citizens, we are essentially making our sovereign borders obsolete. This is the way New York leadership operates: pillage and decimate law-abiding taxpayers in exchange for ensuring votes toward the Democratic Party. If the idea of this insulting legislation wasn’t bad enough, Gov. Cuomo doesn’t even have the backbone to comment on or give his opinion on this legislation.”
The future of this legislation hinges on whether Democrats regain outright control of the state Senate in November’s election.
“The New York State Constitution, Article 2 Section 1, explicitly states that ‘Every citizen shall be entitled to vote at every election…provided that such citizens is eighteen years of age or over and shall have been a resident of this state, and of the county, city, or village for thirty days next preceding an election,’” McLaughlin continued. “Gov. Cuomo and his cronies continue to govern like flip-flopping cowards and now they want to pass legislation that is clearly contrary to the Constitution of the State of New York and a clear violation of their oath of office.”
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer,
Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,
