Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has ordered a review of state laws that allow undocumented aliens to obtain driver’s licenses and restrict data-sharing with Federal immigration authorities. Wolf’s memo follows the enactment in December 2019 of New York’s “Green Light” law, which authorized the grant of licenses for undocumented immigrants, among other things. Similar laws exist in a dozen other states. The Trump Administration has clearly indicated its disdain for such laws and is studying them at present, likely looking for an avenue to challenge their enforceability.
