Cuomo expected to sign bill approving driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

New York state lawmakers on Monday passed a controversial bill granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants — and Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to sign it.

Democrats in the state Senate managed to pass the bill on a 33-29 vote, despite losing all six of their Long Island members over fears the bill could prove politically toxic in their swing districts.

“We are treating the people who have broken our law, who are criminals [like law-abiding citizens]. This legislation will lead to more illegal immigration,” Sen. Thomas O’Mara (R-Chemung) fumed as he voted against the measure.

But Sen. Jessica Ramos (D-Queens), a champion of the bill, shot back to naysayers during the debate, “Be careful, your xenophobia is showing.”
