WATCH: Blackburn introduces legislation to withhold federal funds to states who give drivers licenses to illegal immigrants

Thursday, Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted “the Stop Greenlighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act will punish sanctuary jurisdictions and block certain federal funds to states that harbor illegal aliens.”

The legislation she co-sponsored with Rep. Buck “withholds certain federal grants for states that give driver licenses to illegal immigrants and shield criminal illegal immigrants from deportation.”

“No town in America is secure from criminals and terrorists if our borders aren’t policed and federal immigration laws aren’t fully enforced,” Blackburn said. “This country is governed by the rule of law. We should not reward illegal aliens with driver licenses when they fail to follow the proper legal process.”
