On the heels of New Jersey’s state attorney issuing a directive prohibiting local or state police from cooperating with ICE or inquiring about immigration status while on the job, Democratic State Senator Joseph Vitale is proposing driver’s licenses for illegals. Why? Because they are already on the road illegally and Vitale’s logic is that two wrongs make a right. New Jersey Assemblyman Parker Space swiftly pushed back against the plan, calling it “an insult to every hard-working citizen who plays by the rules.” According to David Jaroslav of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, it “appears to be the first case of a state being made into a sanctuary for illegal aliens by the unilateral executive action of a non-election official.” Indeed!

New Jersey Assemblyman Parker Space said the state’s attorney general did nothing but create a “protected class of citizen” by issuing a new directive that stops local or state cops cooperating with ICE or even asking people about their immigration status.
“It is an insult to every hard-working citizen who plays by the rules that the state will let some crimes go for illegal immigrants just to protect them from immigration officials,” said Space.
And once they are in New Jersey, protected from local, state, and federal law enforcement, Democratic state Sen. Joseph Vitale wants to make sure illegal immigrants have a driver’s license.
“We can’t ignore the reality that undocumented immigrants are on the roads now, going to work, driving their children to school and doing the routine activities that all families do,” said Vitale.
