Immigrants Worry About Upcoming ID Card Law

Arizona will no longer recognize photo-ID cards issued by foreign consulates beginning July 20. The state legislature passed the bill as part of a package of illegal-immigration measures.

Although some failed to win support, the photo-ID card bill did pass and is about to become law.

The ID cards up till now have been the sole form of photo identification for individuals living in another country who do not have a passport or a local driver’s license.

State lawmakers who pushed for the change say the consulate-issued cards are too easy to obtain fraudulently and give the inaccurate impression that all cardholders are in the country legally.

Immigrant advocates say the new law will leave some immigrants without a form of identification.

    Way to go Arizona and Gov. Brewer! I just hope they don’t all rush to Illinois, Our Gov. Pat Quinn and state Reps. Dick Durbin, Luis Gutierrez among others, think they were elected to represent the illegal aliens not the American citizens who voted them into office.
