NYC ID cards ready to roll

From IBTimes:

Illegal immigrants living in the most populous city in the United States will soon be able to obtain identification cards needed to access government services and other benefits. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the criteria for the municipal ID card Friday while reassuring the public that the program would protect against identification fraud.

To prevent fraud, applicants must present proof of identity, including foreign passports and birth certificates, and New York City residency. The cards will be printed on polycarbonate card stock and will include an embedded hologram, the applicant's signature and a secondary, black and white "ghost" photo of the applicant.

Government officials hope they will soon be able to keep better track of who lives in New York City under the ID program. Roughly half of all New York City residents over the age of 16 don't have state driver's licenses.

New York City is home to more than 500,000 immigrants without legal status.

Great idea. Can help ensure every driver has a license, every car owner is insured, get health coverage instead of using the ER.

Obamas executive action already negated the need for these ID cards, oh well I guess theyll do in the meanwhile.

Certainly explains the real estate market and the huge jump in rents. All so your elected official, who snubs you unless they need you for background in a photo shoot, can rake in money from a developer for their next unopposed campaign.

""ensure every driver has a license, every car owner is insured, get health coverage instead of using the ER""

DREAM ON IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN !
These people will still drive drunk with no insurance, no health insurance. To add most these people DON'T WANT to be ID's and on the books. These cards will do NOTHING but make things worse by making them vote and drive to nice neighborhoods ringing doorbells looking for work

Property taxes are going to become unbearable, crime, DWI and "hit & run" will be off the charts on Long Island !!!
I bet the applications for these cards will somehow be ticked "Democrat" by default.
May as well move to a cheap house shitty house in Jamaica because ALL of Queens will become a slum once these people get protection, get ballsy and come out the woodwork demanding all this free stuff they are being promised.
= 3rd world war zone

Hopefully, the next time we'll elect a law-and-order Mayor and President. Then the next Mayor could take the list of all the illegals, and turn it over to Immigration for deportation.

Joe, Are you saying those without the new ID will drive unlicensed, or the ones who get the ID will drive unlicensed?

Half a million criminals, allowed to walk free. that is just astounding.

The ability of these cards to identify the holder is as good as an expired supermarket discount card. They are a joke and everyone knows it.

The only entities that will recognize them will the the ones required by law to do so.

And the illegials are willing (and able) to pay for all that, or are the few remaining tax payers going to???

There was an article just the other day of some fence-hopper complaining that the new rules might make it harder for her husband to become established because he already has MULTIPLE DWIs. "Oh woe is me."

Yeah, this is the type of person that we are welcoming into the system???

ONLY 500000? Try more like 1.5 million!

Exactly what type of ID will the city use to document the undocumented?

What do you mean they'll commit crimes? All they have to do is the tell the cop they don't want to be arrested and they won't be — isn't that the new post-Garner world? Or at least city?

r185, good to see some reasonable people finally commenting on here, keep it up.

"New York City is home to more than 500,000 immigrants without legal status."

You are incorrect. These people do have a legal status: "Illegal Alien."

r185 said...

To Anonymous (I really wish this site required SOME SORT OF NAMES): You referred to "...the illegials are willing (and able) to pay for all that, or are the few remaining tax payers going to???" regarding getting a driver's license, car insurance, and healthcare? Are you serious?! You put out this straw man argument that all of a sudden taxpayers will be paying for their car insurance?! Surely you can come up with something better than that.

it is dangerous to have half a million people walking around the city without ID. If they commit a crime, or are a victim of a crime, we need to know who they are. Anyone who applies for this ID is dumb though, cause they just identified themselves as illegal.

Noah Zuss said...

Yes, r185 and Zee Zeem.

I went to NY.GOV to see what the requirements are to get this ID.: basically it's an already issued ID, like the NYS non-driver ID (so why would you need city ID?) or - get this - a birth certificate! No word on getting it translated or having the seals authenticated. Wow!

The majority of them will continue to drive with no insurance, expired insurance. Licensed or not.

These people want papers, ID & licenses to get free stuff but will continue to give the police fake names "Jose Hernandez" and play "the poor undocumented" when they get into trouble.
--As in drive drunk, hit and run pee or do tricks in you doorways etc. They all have the same last names the system of verifying who they are is a friggan joke !!!
---No records or computers are kept where most these people come from.
Do dumb ass sheeple voters really think background checks & criminal history from 3rd world slums is going to be verified ?? Illegals will be on an "honesty system" ---but citizens wont have that option to apply for these "free stuff cards"
It's ass backwards ask any cop in private
