NYC Mayor De Blasio pushes ID cards for illegal immigrants in speech
New York Post ^ | 02/11/2014 | By Yoav Gonen and Beth DeFalco

Posted on 02/11/2014 12:15:02 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Following through on a campaign pledge, Mayor de Blasio said Monday that he’ll push to create municipal ID cards so illegal immigrants don’t have to “live their lives in the shadows.”

While the cards would be available to all New Yorkers, they would be aimed at undocumented immigrants who don’t have access to bank accounts, library cards and even memberships at Costco because they can’t produce official photo ID.

The cards could be used to secure apartment leases and MTA senior passes.

But they couldn’t be used for government benefits not otherwise available.

“To all of my fellow New Yorkers who are undocumented, I say: New York City is your home, too, and we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows,” the mayor declared in his first State of the City address.

He repeated the sentiment in Spanish.

Sure illegals are great, better than Americans. let’s do everything for them imaginable. make it easy for them. Give them benefits.

After all this nonsense is completely upside down and America means nothing.

How’s this for an approach? Millions upon millions of people want to come here from all over the world. So America can chase these people the heck out and make our on decisions on exactly who we want here.

But no, that would mean America is worthwhile. Even more worthwhile than some illegal foreigner.

In fact it’s not only their home now, the rest of us can get the hell out if we don’t like it. As with all this leftist bull crap, somehow we did something wrong by minding our own business as citizens.

So you are telling me that the only reason to do this is because illegal immigrants who paid others thousands to get here and for pilfered social security numbers, etc. don't want to spend another $25 at the flea market, the government needs to give them IDs yet American citizens cannot be compelled to get an ID to go vote?

Apparently American voters without photo ID don't go to Costco, the library, or the bank.

Call me skeptical.

To all the republicans who say we cannot win elections without selling out America, I say good! We don’t want scum like them representing us.

Americans overwhelmingly do not want to support illegal aliens.

If they can do this, then they can make having an ID in order to vote.

Plus an ID helps find them if its determined that they are of no use to the party.

I agree. Illegal aliens should not even be in this country, much less rewarded for breaking our laws. They must be deported.

I have a solution to the illegal mexican problem. If approximately 11million illegals are living in the US, then the US should levy a suitable tariff per illegal per year for ALL GOODS that cross the border from mexico into the US. if you don’t agree to imposing a tariff on mexico to pay for all of their illegals here mooching off the system, then you are complicit in slave trafficking, and should be imprisoned and stripped of all of your assets, at the very least. Either be part of the solution, or suffer the consequences of being part of the problem.

So to oBLAzeeoh:

Hey illegals, come on in. Take what you want, don’t worry about the bill or following any rule of law. We’ll take care of you.

But those who follow the law, want the law followed and want everyone to pay their own way, get the f out.

Do I have that correct?

At the same time, the IDs will not allow illegal immigrants to receive any government benefits that aren’t already available to them.Oh brother, does he really think anybody believe this. As illegal friendly New York is, they likely do not even ask for any ID. they would be allowed to open bank accounts, sign apartment leases, receive library cards, and gain access to other services they’re otherwise barred from without a photo ID....If I wanted rent an apt they would want photo ID,SSN to run a credit check,yet illegals will be excused from these pesty requirements.The only illegal at library are the ones who used document fraud to get the job building it.Illegals get to open bank account no SSN needed as in no need to check past history with banks.

Nationally, this country is finally waking up to the notion that integrating undocumented immigrants into our society and legalizing their status will make us more secure,” Using this logic let us make everyone legal our country will be secured and safer.We can lay off law enforcement of all branches want need them.All the crooks have ID cards.Mayor will want to pass out ID cards in Iraq making taliban in country illegally feel safer.Drug cartels in mexico give them ID cards mexico will be safer thanks new york mayor.

If you are in California you know that they have already been voting for years.

“If approximately 11 million illegals are living in the US,”

Triple that and you’ll be in the ballpark.

The lowball number is touted by the GOPe and Democrat treason lobby because they believe that it will get you to swallow amnesty easier.

Wouldn’t it be ironic, or at least kind of funny, if the database that’s formed from issuing these cards was later used by INS, etc. to start deporting illegals?

Well, *I* would get a chuckle out of that, anyway.

The leftists push photo IDs for illegals, but somehow the same document is somehow “racist” when required for voting.

I've always thought that, too... The population of illegals in California and Texas alone very likely exceeds 11 million.

Replace "New York" with "Florida", and this could just as easily pass for a speech by Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio. Maybe Jeb could pick De Blasio as his running mate in 2016.

Remind the illegals that, as with firearms, registration leads to confiscation.

Only if he stops calling illegal aliens "undocumented" after he gives them documents. I won't hold my breath.

This whole terminology of "undocumented" immigrants is just a newspeak euphemism designed to minimize the problem in the public eye. It makes it look as though some bureaucrat just forgot to dot an "i" or cross a "t" on a naturalization form, as opposed to the immigrant breaking the law by being here to begin with.
