Immigrant Advocates Respond to AG James’ Support for Green Light NY

June 18th, 2019

New York, NY–Attorney General Letitia James just released a supportive statement about the constitutionality and safety provisions in the Green Light NY bill and affirmed that "the legislation is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for drivers licenses. If this bill is enacted we will vigorously defend it."

Steve Choi, Executive Director, New York Immigration Coalition, and facilitator of Green Light NY said in response:

“This is exactly the type of leadership we need from our elected officials. Attorney General James has made it crystal clear that the Green Light NY bill ‘contains ample protections for those who apply for drivers licenses’ and she has vowed to vigorously defend it.’ With her support and commitment there is now no legal reason for Governor Cuomo not to do what he’s promised and sign it into law immediately. Case closed.”
