New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer Real ID standards for most New York driver’s licenses, while still allowing some illegal aliens to get other types of driver’s licenses SEE RELATED:

“All eyes have been on New York for the past month and public safety advocates lifted up Governor Spitzer’s policy as a national example to be replicated throughout the nation. We have praised his courage in standing up for the public good in the face of demagoguery. But today, he has let his good name be used to give cover to a policy rejected by nearly two dozen states across the country, that tramples on Americans’ civil rights and liberties and is fraught with implementation problems. The Governor has given new life to a sinking ship that deserved to be sunk.\ \ \ “His move is also a lose-lose political decision that betrays his most ardent supporters and emboldens the anti-immigrant opposition.”
