Democrats are vehemently against Voter ID Law. Anytime Republicans mentions voter ID they’re called racists by leftists, who insists that minorities and the poor can’t get IDs.
These same Democrats, however, have no problem with issuing ID card to illegal aliens so they can live off of taxpayers’ money and suck the system dry.
Now in one of America’s largest cities there will be IDs made available just for non-Americans.
Decrying Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ threats to strip federal money from sanctuary cities, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel is introducing the “Municipal ID” plan—distributing new ID cards that will allow illegal immigrants to receive welfare benefits.
The ID is intended to be valid at pharmacies, local government buildings, sporting events and other cultural institutions in addition to allowing illegals to apply for government welfare.
The new program was unveiled at a Chicago City Council meeting on Wednesday, and it protects illegal aliens from federal oversight by not collecting any copies of identification documents presented when illegals apply for the identification card.
“Applicants bring in the documents to prove someone’s identity. They hand them over to specially trained individual who can review the documents and then hand them back … It’s going to capture just the name and the date of birth. It’s not going to capture an address,” a source close to those officials told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The scheme is specifically designed not only to allow illegals to obtain the cards, but to avoid collecting data that could be used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to discover aliens in the country illegally. Chicago is apparently looking to a model pioneered in San Francisco to frustrate ICE efforts.
While city officials will make no effort to ascertain if recipients of the new ID are committing a crime by being in the United States, they will ensure that the gender with which they most strongly identify will be properly documented. “Applicants will also be able to self-designate their gender, which will be huge to the transgender and LGBTQ community. And it’s not just for undocumented individuals,” the same source said.
The Sun-Times also reported that the Municipal ID program itself will cost Chicago taxpayers $1 million in its first year of implementation.
Shelling out welfare (among other freebies like food stamps, and section eight housing vouchers) is how the Left compensates illegal aliens for illegally registering as Democrats to illegally vote.
The crime and homicide rate are so high Chicago, that the ‘Windy City’ has earned unsavory titles like “America’s mass shooting capital.”
Seven people were killed in just a 12-hour period in the city’s South Shore neighborhood on Thursday alone.
Through the first quarter of this year, there were 139 homicides citywide as of Friday evening, according to Chicago police.
Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!

Murders in Chicago last year rose to their highest rate since 1996, with 27.8 homicides for every 100,000 residents, based on police and the latest census data.
Nonetheless, ensuring illegal aliens get welfare and avoid deportation is on the top of Rahm’s priority list, rather than reducing the bloodshed in the streets from the hundreds of murders in his city.
Democrats wouldn’t be the shellacked party they are today if they cared about law-abiding working Americans as much as they do doling out welfare to illegal aliens.
