DHS Explains Why New York Allowing Illegal Immigrant Drivers License Hinders Catching Criminals

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

The Department of Homeland Security released a statement condemning the state of New York for not only allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses, but also for the state not allowing the agency to look at the database for investigations involving serious crimes.


"This will protect criminals at the expense of the safety and security of law-abiding New York residents. Beside giving drivers licenses to hundreds of thousands of people who broke our laws and have come to our country illegally, the New York law also blocks DHS law enforcement officers who investigate crimes, like child exploitation, human trafficking, terrorism, the targeting of gang members, sex offenders and drug smuggling, from accessing important public records," DHS said in a press release. 

"Accessing this information is vital to building out these criminal cases, identifying criminal suspects, and enhancing officer safety," the department added.

There were long lines outside the state's DMVs on Monday as undocumented immigrants were eager to sign up under the new law.


The driver's licenses that will be given out to the illegal aliens will not look different from those given to U.S. citizens.
