NY County clerk sues Governor Andrew Cuomo over illegal immigrants driver’s license law

Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns has filed a lawsuit against Gov. Andrew Cuomo for approving a controversial state law granting driver’s license privileges to illegal immigrants that would force county clerks to defy federal law.

The Green Light Bill passed the Senate 33-29 before Cuomo signed it into law June 17.

The case, which was filed in US Western District Court in Buffalo, lists Cuomo, state Attorney General Letitia James and Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Mark Schroeder as defendants.
