Illegals in N.Y. Queue for Driver's Licenses With No Fear of Deportation.

Illegal aliens in New York are now waiting in long lines for driver's licenses without any fear of deportation.

The illegal-alien driver's-license outrage was addressed in court, but as the The Hill reported December 13, "A federal judge on Friday denied a challenge to a law that will allow New York to give driver's licenses to [illegal aliens]."

"The law, which is set to go into effect next week, was facing its second challenge in court, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports," the site continues. "U.S. District Judge Gary Sharpe ruled against Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola, saying he lacked the legal capacity to bring the lawsuit against the state over the new law."

"Three other lawsuits are either pending or are on appeal," the National Sentinel added December 17, "but NY state officials implemented it on Monday [December 16] anyway because no court had issued a stay until the matter can be settled once and for all."

The Sentinel also asks, "Why aren't federal immigration officials here rounding people up?" and then elaborates: "New York jurisdictions may claim to be 'sanctuaries' for illegal aliens, forbidding their own local law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal immigration officials or helping enforce federal immigration laws. Got it. But why the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency wasn't at these licensing facilities in force is a mystery."

The bottom line is that while Democrats proclaimed when impeaching Trump that "no one is above the law," everyone is above the law except those they want below the law. Fox News host Tucker Carlson expressed this reality well in a June 2019 segment, mentioning, among other examples, that our country's "20 million illegal aliens" are certainly above the law.

Of course, the creation of frivolous laws, ignoring of important ones, and selective application of all law undermines respect for law--as does favoring foreigners over citizens.
