Illegal Immigrants In L.A. Could Get Library Cards
September 11, 2012
The Los Angeles Public Library card could one day become a form of identification for the city's large illegal immigrant population that would allow them to open bank accounts and access services.
The City Council unanimously voted recently to consider the proposal, which would have Los Angeles join the growing number of cities across the nation that offer various forms of identification to undocumented workers and others who cannot get driver's licenses because of their immigration status.
Though L.A.'s plan would not be as sweeping as those adopted by cities like San Francisco, Oakland and Richmond, it would be a major step in serving the estimated 300,000 residents who don't have bank accounts or debit cards.

Hey, illegals are already have "various forms of identification". Somebody elses!!! And they don't open bank accounts you moron, it's kept at home because they don't trust banks. And exactly what "services" would they be accessing? Do you mean the free medical services? Free rent money? (From legal residents) Or perhaps all the other "free" stuff they get by being in this country ILLEGALLY??? Why doesn't kalifornia just cede from the Union and officially become part of Mexico? It's almost there now. Blues, stay safe and get the hell out of that mess now.

Wow I think we are becoming the United States of Mexico and Muslim Brotherhood. We prosecute cops for doing their jobs but let certain people, politicians and big wigs get out of trouble because of which ass they kiss. Wake up America!!!
