Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “‘Driver's licenses for all’: Bill de Blasio supports driver's licenses for illegal immigrants”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.

“I believe in driver’s licenses for all. I believe that all New Yorkers, regardless of documentation status, need to be able to get a license the right way. It’s about fairness, but it’s also about safety for all of us and for our families,” he added. “I ask everyone to weigh in, driver’s licenses for all. It’s fair. It’s smart. It’s safe.”
