Following through on a campaign pledge, Mayor de Blasio said Monday that hell push to create municipal ID cards so illegal immigrants dont 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 dont have access to bank accounts, library cards and even memberships at Costco because they cant produce official photo ID.
The cards could be used to secure apartment leases and MTA senior passes.
But they couldnt 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.
May they all rent apartments close to DeBlowhard’s home.
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.
I mean really, by what logic is this their home???
He is a complete idiot!
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.
I’m sure the Obama regime will denounce Decommie for usurping the federal govts right to regulate immigration/s
When do burglars and rapists get to come out from the shadows?
How about a yellow star that they can sew on their coat?
His ‘compassion’ is touching.
His ‘compassion’ is paid for with your money and mine... :(
Plus an ID helps find them if its determined that they are of no use to the party.
What a racist zenophobe! If black Americans can’t get IDs how are foreigners supposed to get them?
If these cards are officially recognized ID what would stop illegals from registering to vote?
Will these ID cards ID them as ILLEGAL ALIENS ?
Do they have to use these I.D. to vote or just to get benefits?
