The fact remains, though, that valid identification is required for a litany of purchases and services, so those without it remain at a distinct disadvantage in their daily lives. I believe legal citizens should be able to affordably attain identification, though the leftist push to give ID cards to illegal aliens would serve only to legitimize their presence and further reduce their accountability for flouting this nation’s immigration laws.
Never a state to be outdone in liberal nonsense, a California proposition hopes to issue library cards – library cards! – to Los Angeles residents, effectively replacing DMV-issued ID cards and even debit cards.
Why would anyone here illegally ever decide to seek citizenship when he or she can visit the neighborhood library and enjoy virtually all of the benefits of an American with none of the work? This is not a rhetorical question; I would genuinely love to hear an answer!
According to the wingnut councilman responsible for proposing this atrocious policy, his only concern is for the financial security of his constituents. Ostensibly, he wants to protect those without a bank account from scams and theft; in reality, he’s providing a backdoor path to pseudo-citizenship.
This is not the first occurrence of lawmakers dumbing down the definition of legitimate identification. Unsurprisingly, two other California cities – Oakland and San Fransisco – have implemented similar plans.
If successful, an estimated 300,000 Los Angeles residents will be able to take advantage of the program. The only requirement is proof of residency, which opponents of the measure say is all too easy to forge.
Liberal politicians, knowing their true intentions would repulse the vast majority of their subjects, always cloak despicable policy in disingenuous language. Those of us paying attention can easily dissect their wordplay, though. It’s up to us to let them know they won’t get away with it!
