Voters in several states will have a chance on November 8 to vote on immigration-related questions appearing on their ballots.  Most prominent among these are drivers’ licenses for illegal aliens in Massachusetts, in-state tuition for illegal aliens in Arizona, and citizen-only voting in Ohio.The Massachusetts legislature enacted driver’s licenses for illegal aliens on June 9, when two-thirds of both chambers voted to override Governor Charlie Baker (R)’s May 27 veto of the so-called “Work and Family Mobility Act,” House Bill (H.) 4805.  This legislation authorizes the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) to issue drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens and is scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2023.  However, voters have the opportunity to reject the law in November and, if they do, it would be repealed before it takes effect. . . .
