Monroe County this week became the latest local government to file a legal challenge to the state’s law that will allow undocumented immigrants to apply for and receive driver’s licenses.

The measure was previously challenged by local officials in Erie County and Rensselaer County.

County officials have contested the measure is unconstitutional and violates the 14th amendment by placing citizens and non-citizens on unequal footing.

Supporters of the legislation contend the measure will be upheld in the courts.

“Another day, another desperate, discriminatory and racist lawsuit filed by public officials who should be looking to lift up all New Yorkers, not force tens of thousands to remain in the shadows. It would be boring already if it wasn’t so offensive,” said New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steven Choi.

“We have full confidence the courts will see this and the other lawsuits previously filed for what they are—ugly, anti-immigrant political statements disguised as bogus legal challenges. Twelve states already allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. And despite this lawsuit, New York will become the 13th in December.”
