NEW HAVEN, Conn. - City officials approved a plan Monday to offer illegal immigrants identification cards that would let them open bank accounts and use other services that may be unavailable without driver's licenses or state-issued IDs.

Supporters say the program, approved by the Board of Aldermen and believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, will help safeguard the city's estimated 15,000 illegal immigrants. If they can open bank accounts, immigrants will be less likely to carry large amounts of cash, a practice that makes them easy targets for robbers.

Hopefully we have citizens in New Haven that will notice these cards and call ICE every time someone is seen using one. The ID card should be called A make it easier for ICE to identify an illegal alien card. Illegal alien enablers are frequently saying just how unfair it is to assume someone is an illegal based on appearance, language, dress and conduct. Now all we need to do is see the illegal alien identification card and we know to call ICE.

I think they should just go further and allow them all into Yale with free tuition. I mean it would be racist to do otherwise, right?

Those cards are ridiculous. Is like creating a special card for bank robbers, that way they can show the card at the bank and the teller gives the money automatically.

The only good, thing, PEOPLE MUST BE AWARE THAT IF YOU SEE ONE OF THOSE CARDS, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!! and report the criminal.

It still would be up to the banks and other businesses do decide if they will honor them, wouldn't it?. That ought to give the conservative protesters/boycotters something to do for a while.
