L.A. To Consider Multi-Use Library Cards For Illegal Immigrants The cards, under study now, would provide a form of identification for those without driver's licenses and could be used to open bank accounts, transfer funds and access cash.
By Catherine Saillant September 10 Los Angeles officials are considering a plan to turn the library card into a form of identification that the city's large illegal immigrant population could use to open bank accounts and access an array of city services.
The City Council last month voted unanimously to study the plan, which would have Los Angeles join the growing number of cities across the nation that offer various forms of identification to undocumented workers and others who cannot get driver's licenses because of their immigration status.
Although L.A.'s plan would not be as sweeping as those adopted by cities like San Francisco, Oakland and Richmond, it would be a major step in serving the estimated 300,000 residents who don't have bank accounts or debit cards.
The ID card would include a user's name, address and a photograph, and would be issued through the city's libraries. The city would partner with a private vendor to set up bank accounts for those who want to use the library ID as a debit card. Banks generally require official identification to open an account.

Let’s just split up. This isn’t working. We’ll take the South, Southwest, Midwest and border states. You guys get the NE, the Left Coast, Great Lakes, etc. Erring sisters, depart in peace.

Red and blue, sounds good to me. We must enforce the borders, though.
Why does any sane, productive worker want to stay in that cesspool?
When I was a kid, this was against the law. Aiding and abetting.
California ... Mexico North.
Use their library cards to ship them back to mexico.
It's amazing how carefully designed these circumventions are getting. Why is this tolerated? They're not fooling anyone.
Congress needs to block this by requiring banks take only federal or state ID.
What I want to know is what do they need to get one of these cards, just their own say-so as to who they are???
Hola, me llamo es Marie Smith. Bingo you have a card???
Their mayor is a former LaRaza official.
That is such a bad idea words cannot express.
I don’t understand why they need the library card to open an account just so’s they can withdraw money. Seems to me the bank account part could be skipped as needless steps in the process. Then, the library card can be used by illegals to just withdraw money from any bank. Every illegal should have one! (or more)
The American Library Association brainwashes librarians into thinking they should help people outsmart the laws of the land.
IIRC, post Sept 11, 2001, Federal Regulations set ID requirements for opening new bank accounts. Library cards don’t cut it.
