Skip to comments.New Haven To Test New Way Of Dealing With Illegal Immigration Aimed At Integration(ID's)

New Haven, CT - A program approved last month by the Board of Aldermen for the city of New Haven, Connecticut, will officially go into effect July 25, when thousands of local undocumented immigrants are issued legitimate U.S. identification cards. The program, approved by a 25-1 vote, runs contrary to a growing national trend in which localities are attempting to curb illegal immigration through punitive measures, such as arrest, deportation and exclusion from public services.
The program is believed to be the first of it's kind in the nation.
The ID cards will be issued in an attempt to curb local crime by making undocumented immigrants more likely to report crimes or cooperate with local authorities. They will also allow them the opportunity to establish bank accounts, access local libraries and enjoy other public services that officials hope will help them integrate into the community and avoid becoming the target of robberies and other crimes.
The plan has received fierce opposition from groups such as Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, who fear that the program will increase immigrant populations in the town to levels that strain public services.

I can’t think of an easier place for ICE to catch illegal aliens.
that city has for decades been the armpit of CT. I see they do not want to burnish their image.
New Haven is Moonbat Central.
Where does a city get the authority to issue, “Legitimate U.S. identification cards?”
This brings up the bad situation we have in trying to get a handle on illegal immigration. As long as there’s no Federal mandate prohibiting local and State municipalities from pulling these “end around” maneuvers,it’s going to be next to impossible to enforce our immigration laws and deport foreign violators !!!
Is that kinda like saying “we have a Sanctuary City...Y’all come”?
>>making undocumented immigrants more likely to report crimes ... and enjoy other public services ... and avoid becoming the target of robberies and other crimes.<<
So now we know it, folks: Illegal aliens haven’t been reporting enough crimes, they haven’t been exploiting our tax-paid public services enough, and they are too frequently the targets of robberies and other crimes (rather than being the actual PERPETRATORS of such crimes).
Wonder if the idiots in New Haven have read their own STATE requirements for **legal** ID’s for non-citizens ??
