As of late, New York appears to be drawing up defection plans as they decide what to call their newly formed country. They can’t attract enough crime by following stupid Federal laws, or by allowing those evil and pesky ICE agents to interfere with the lives of their overly abundant illegal population. The same ones who are bankrupting the state by lining up for freebies at the expense of law-abiding legal American taxpayers. No. We wouldn’t want that to happen, now would we? Hmmm… What will they call this new land of no opportunity, ghettos, gangs, rats, crime, and illegals?
We’re talking about what NY refers to as their mind-boggling “Green Light Law.” It isn’t Federal by any means, nor will it ever be allowed to become that way. New York owns it lock, stock, and barrel. But despite the fact the law has always been considered atrocious and counter-productive to national efforts and has received widespread criticism, this horrible, ludicrous, and utterly ridiculous law, has just had another measure of only the finest of stupidity stirred into the absurd and potentially volatile mixture.
In a nutshell, this is what “The Green Light Law states, and if you are not already familiar with its content, strap yourself in and prepare to blow a fuse, or in light of modern times, your breaker’s about to flip. The main difference between New York’s immigration stance versus other states is that it forbids their DMV from releasing any information whatsoever on any NY legally licensed driver, regardless of their legal status to even be in this country in the first place. Ain’t that a pisser… But wait. There’s more…
As if the law wasn’t already indirect interference with what President Trump is attempting to achieve, which is clearing America’s streets of unwanted crime committing illegals, Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is facing scrutiny over his atrocious handling of the Covid-19 Pandemic, resulting in the nursing home deaths of up to 10,000 people, decided the law did not cater well enough to his states non-citizens.
Cuomo, in his infinite lack of any reasonable wisdom, determined the penalty to not be nearly harsh enough for willfully violating his unconstitutional law, so it now carries the penalty of a Class-E Felony which is subject to up to 15-years in the slammer, a $50.00 fine, or both. Since all eyes in Washington are on watching matter this matter closely. it can only be assumed that the first person for this violation will receive a full presidential pardon as a patriotic slap in Cuomo’s face.
The amendment to laws goes on to state how any person who is arrested for passing out any personal and private information is subject by the law to reveal the identities of all parties involved. A loose interpretation of the law would be, anyone in direct violation is going to be forced to sing like a canary as they rat out federal agents. Let’s call it what it is.
Acting ICE Director, Matt Albence had this to say, “Somehow the state of New York took a bad law, doubled down and made it worse by now criminalizing essential information sharing that is critical to effective law enforcement.” “In New York, we’ve been frozen out now and now you can’t even share from cop to cop, so it’s incredibly dangerous,” Governor Cuomo has singlehandedly placed every New Yorkers’ lives, and the lives of its many, many, visitor, in grave jeopardy. Why did he do this? The answer is simple. To offer a shield to those residents who would be immediately deported if caught. Criminals of every sort. Nice guy, huh?
New York has taken an incredibly strong position in terms of protecting its huge illegal population of misfits, with no before or afterthought given to the safety of its many residents who are fully within their rights to live in the state and they can show you their tax returns as undeniable proof of the matter. But there is another thing Andrew Cuomo failed to consider. When the law was amended, not only was the DMV affected, but it added the same penalty for any law enforcement agency or agent who dares to share information.
Albence is highly frustrated beyond any of the frustration he may have previously felt, and body-slammed Cuomo with these words, “Public safety is giving your law enforcement officers that work in your state that keep your communities safe every single tool they need to do their job safely and effectively, and this does the exact opposite of that.” “They have a right to go home safe at the end of the day after they’ve served their communities and their country.”
We could not have said it better, Mr. Albence.
