But it gets worse: yesterday, di Blasio added that the cards will also grant illegal immigrants free memberships to top cultural institutions, from Carnegie Hall to the Bronx Zoo. And officials hinted the cards eventually will provide illegal immigrants discounts at movie theaters and other commercial entertainment venues, as if being here illegally is honorable and deserving of reward. Maybe if I were to leave America, renounce my citizenship, and then re-enter America illegally, I could receive the free healthcare, education, and now entertainment, that I and all legal working citizens currently have to pay for ourselves, but that illegal immigrants receive for free.
de Blasio and his pro-illegal immigration supporters argue that ID cards improve the relationship between the immigrant community and the local police. They add that IDs recognize immigrants’ humanity and dignity even though those immigrants broke federal immigration laws to enter the U.S.
Moreover, a New York Times investigative report revealed that 6 million aliens pay payroll taxes, which means that illegal aliens must have fraudulently obtained Social Security cards, falsified I-9 forms under penalty of perjury, or committed identity theft, all of which are felonies (in addition to the crime of entering the country illegally).
