Assemblyman Greg Ball, the Putnam Republican who made the issue of illegal immigration a focal point of his 2006 bid for office, will be among the GOP lawmakers taking part in forum Wednesday on Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s plan to give illegal immigrants the ability to obtain driver’s licenses.
The forum is being hosted by the Assembly’s Republican conference and will take place at 10 a.m. inside the state Senate’s Manhattan offices at 250 Broadway, across from City Hall.
Ball has already blasted Spitzer’s plan and vowed to fight against it in the Assembly.
Wednesday’s forum, according to a press release from the Assembly GOP confernece, will feature a “variety of homeland security and immigration experts.”
