(Worthy News) - New York Mayor and Democratic presidential contender Bill de Blasio said that he supports allowing everyone, including those who are undocumented, to get a driver’s license in New York.
In a video originally posted Thursday to Twitter, then reposted Monday, the mayor urges passage of the so-called “ Green Light NY” bill, which would allow illegal immigrants access to the “standard license,” one of three types of licenses the federal government is set to roll out in 2020.
“You know, when I’m in New York City traffic, I’m not thinking about whether someone is documented or undocumented. I’m thinking about whether someone drives safely, and the best way to make sure that people drive safe is if they have a driver’s license,” de Blasio said.
