Albany Debate on Whether Illegal Immigrants Should Have Driver's Licenses

The question of a driver's license for illegal immigrants, it’s still one of the most contentious issues facing state lawmakers in the closing weeks of the session.

Democratic Assemblyman Victor Pichardo from the Bronx says this is about justice.

But State Sen. Jim Tedisco isn't buying it.

In response to the so-called "Green Light bill," Tedisco and other Republicans are backing a bill that would protect county clerks who might refuse to give an undocumented immigrant a driver's license.

Gov. Cuomo supports the measure, but said last week he wasn't sure would pass the legislature before it adjourns next month.
