The Massachusetts state legislature has voted to allow illegal aliens in the state to obtain driver’s licenses!

Massachusetts lawmakers voted last week to override a veto from Republican Gov. Charlie Baker on the legislation. 

The state Senate voted 32-8 despite Baker’s objection, and a day after, the House voted 119-36 on the same measure, dubbed the Work and Family Mobility Act. Both chambers are controlled by Democrats. The bill will allow those without legal status to apply for a driver’s license if they can show proof of their identity and residency in Massachusetts.

State House Speaker Ron Mariano said the legislation will “increase safety on our roads by ensuring that everyone has access to a driver’s license, regardless of immigration status.”

Governor Baker had vetoed the bill last month, saying in a letter to the House that it “undoes a critical safeguard to the driver’s license issuance process” and that the Registry of Motor Vehicles doesn’t have the expertise or ability to verify many types of documents from other countries.

“We are a nation of immigrants. We all benefit from increased public safety,” state Senate President Karen Spilka said after Baker’s veto in May. “And everyone deserves to feel safe and get to work, pick up children and be a part of their communities without fear. The @ma_senate looks forward to overriding this misguided decision.”

Under the new law, someone in the country illegally would have to provide a passport or consular identification document to apply for a driver’s license. 

They will also have to provide one of five additional documents: a driver’s license from another U.S. state or territory; a birth certificate; a foreign national identification card; a foreign driver’s license; or a marriage certificate or divorce decree from any U.S. state or territory.

Supporters of the bill said it would allow thousands of unlicensed drivers to travel to work and school without fear and would enhance safety on the road. Critics contend it could have negative impacts on public safety and could threaten the electoral process. 

“I have very grave concerns about the impacts this bill will have on public safety and the integrity of our elections,” Rep. Steve Xiarhos, a Republican, said Wednesday on social media. “I consistently voted against this bill, and I remain opposed to its passage into law.”

In many districts, a driver’s license is all that is required to register to vote; thus, non-US citizens and illegals with state-issued driver’s licenses could vote illegally in state and national elections. In fact, many Republicans believe that is the entire motivation behind the legislation in Massachusetts and the 16 other states that have similar laws.

  3. Lord help us. I guessed they figured that they found away to get over to America on America’s money and taking food out of these over here that are worse off than they are Getting $450,000 thousands dollar a year. Well why not just press on and get their license’s. Since the illegals have been allowed to cross the bordered there have been more murders, fights, and more attacks on innocent people. Thanks’ to you President Biden, you caused this mess. How about taking the money you so freely gave to them and give to us living in the good old United States of America. There are so many of us would love to have just
    $35 to $45.000 or even less to make our end’s meet. I give my praise and honor to the Governor of Texas for what he did I hope you had a big meal prepare for all of those Immigrants when those busses came pulling in.

  4. You give them a license to drive but I don’t see where you require them to have insurance. While they are learning to drive and smashing up cars it’s the taxpayer who will end up paying for the damage to his car.. If they are illegal we owe them nothing. My grandparents came over from Italy in 1913. Grandpa got a job and worked for everything he wanted. Nothing free from our politicians. He studied and became a citizen, bought a house and became part of the town. Today they come over and want every thing free, free isn’t free it’s paid for by the taxpayer. Now they bring them over give them what they want and use them for a vote. Over 75% of the American citizens want this to stop but our politicians could care less about what we want it’s all for them…

  5. Our governments, Federal, state and local have literally destroyed the meaning of citizenship… They continue to give illegal aliens (and legal non-citizens) more and more of OUR rights as citizens.. I didn’t see a thing that says the person is a non-citizen on that license… this will make it easy for that non-citizen to vote in OUR elections.. this is WRONG.. these buffoons continue to hand our country free of charge to illegal aliens… while they kick the American people in the back… YES we are a country of immigrants…LEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!! We used to be a melting pot of legal immigrants who assimilated into the American culture, learned English, and worked hard to become a citizen… We are no longer this melting pot. we have become a salad bowl contaminated by illegal aliens (an legal immigrants some) who do not want to assimilate and learn English and really be a part of the American culture.. I have neighbors I can’t even talk to because they don’t know English…. Our country is being torn apart shoved deeper into a 3rd world country

  6. Question…..who’s providing the insurance for these so called drivers. Is the state going to pay for any lawsuits resulting from an illegal having an accident, injuring someone or property or heaven forbid killing someone?

  7. LIBERAL IGNORANCE and VOTE BUYING strikes again. This is all just so ILLEGALS can vote for Democraps unchallenged.

  8. That was their intention all along. They got the illegals over here to set them up to vote for the democrats. They want total control, like a dictatorship.
