It's Really About the Money
That's the conclusion to be drawn from Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa's plan to introduce ID cards for illegal aliens. "A new plan from Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa could give millions of immigrants access to banking services. Under the mayor's proposal, Los Angeles would create an official city photo identification card for immigrants that could also be used as a prepaid ATM card for their private bank account," Fox News Latino writes.
"'Los Angeles is making it easier for people who have violated federal immigration laws to live in the city,' said Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group critical of illegal immigration. A City Council committee will discuss the ID card proposal on Tuesday, the Times said."
