A New York county clerk who refused to issue licenses to illegals in June plans to file a lawsuit Tuesday against the law.

Erie County Clerk Michael “Mickey” Kearns made headlines in June when he openly defied Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Green Light Bill that mandated clerks throughout the state issue driver’s licenses to those residing in America as illegal aliens. He is now fulfilling a promise he made to challenge the law he deems unconstitutional.

Kearns calls the bill “inconsistent with federal law” and claims the bill forces him and other clerks to choose to their allegiance to either the federal government or government of New York.

He also believes the law is a violation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which expressly outlaws knowingly hiring illegal immigrants, Fox News Reports.
