“Y’all come!” That’s the policy of the Los Angeles City Council toward illegal immigrants.
The City Council has voted to create special cards for illegals who want free food. After all, a man has to eat.
Los Angeles is not alone. This card for illegals is an idea whose time has come. Judicial Watch reports:
“The L.A. mayor says his key goal is to help illegal immigrants in his city access banking services with the new ID cards. Several municipalities across the nation already offer illegal immigrants official government ID cards to facilitate life in the U.S. New Haven, Connecticut became the first to offer undocumented aliens the cards in 2007 and a handful of others soon followed. In California, San Francisco and Oakland offer illegal immigrants the perk and in New Jersey both Princeton and Trenton issue the cards to illegals.”
So far, the Feds have not created a national ID card. This is good. But cities have a fetish for cards. Everyone is supposed to get a card issued to him. So, if you can’t issue a card for people who are legal, issue one for people who are illegal.
This is not entrapment. It will not be legal to trace anyone’s background. No racial profiling, please. Comprende?
The cards will be photo-ID cards. These will let card-carriers get welfare services or open a bank account.
Yes, open a bank account. After all, just because a guy is too poor to buy food for himself or his family should not keep him from opening a bank account.
One report says that an L.A. councilman told a local newspaper that the ID cards will allow illegal aliens “who have been living in the shadows to be out in the day of light.”
I mean, we want illegal immigrants to have the right to participate in civic life. Don’t we?
Next step: voting.
The mayor has not yet signed this into law. It is expected that he will.
Already, Los Angeles County spends about $400 million annually on illegal aliens. Then add welfare and food stamps (federal SNAP cards): $440 million. Toss in another quarter billion on jail costs.
Red ink adds up.
The welfare state wants everyone signed up, regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin — including national citizenship.
I keep thinking of a rewritten song: “North of the Border, Down Mexico Way.”
