Some county clerks in upstate New York say they will refuse to comply with the state’s new law granting driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.

“In the memo of the bill, they talk about the reason why they’re passing this bill is to make sure that people who are here illegally can get to and from work,” Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns said, according to the New York Post. “It is illegal to hire people in the state of New York or anywhere that are here illegally. There’s an inconsistency there.”

In a letter to County Aattorney Michael Siragusa, Kearns asked for state representation in a lawsuit over the legislation in federal court, WIVB in Buffalo reported.

“After a review of the act, I am convinced that it is inconsistent with federal law,” Kearns wrote in the letter. “More importantly, however, complying with the act puts me and other county clerks in the untenable position of having to decide whether to uphold federal law or the newly enacted state law. I anticipate being sued in either event.”

Kerns said motor vehicle agencies in the area will instead send applicants who state employees believe are in the country illegally to the bureau in Syracuse.

“Speaking with WIVB, Kearns also reportedly suggested the bill may be a violation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which would make it illegal to knowingly hire illegal immigrants,” Fox News reported.

    New York and other states are in direct violation of federal statutes and are subject to their licenses being revoked outside of their state.
