The Board of Supervisors voted today to make San Francisco the largest U.S. city to issue municipal identification cards to its residents, regardless of whether or not they are in the country legally.Why you ask? Good question. Let's see how these freaks reason this out....
Supervisor Tom Ammiano, the legislation's author, said the availability of identification cards is a smart public safety measure because it would make residents living on the social margins of San Francisco more likely to seek the help of police and could give them more access to banking services.See, with an official ID card illegal people will feel safe talking to the cops. They will automatically be safe and conduct their lives in a safe and open manner. Makes sense to me. All these people need is recognition. They are only breaking our nation's laws because they are not officially recognized with an ID card.
"People are afraid to report crimes," Ammiano said, referring to illegal immigrants who avoid local law enforcement authorities over fear of being arrested or deported by federal immigration officials.
OH, and here is another reason....
The legislation would require companies doing business with San Francisco to accept the municipal card as a legitimate form of identification ...
Under San Francisco's sanctuary ordinance, it already is city policy that no municipal government personnel or resources may be used to assist federal immigration officials in the arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants.
So, basically, this new ordinance will force employers to hire anyone carrying this ID card. Excuse me? Isn't that the point of a sanctuary city? So that anyone living there can't be refused work or service based on their residency status? Then what is the point of the ID card really?
Ammiano said banking institutions in San Francisco have signaled their willingness to accept the municipal ID card for the purpose of setting up accounts. He noted that people without bank accounts are frequently more vulnerable to theft and robbery.Ummm. Exactly how many people are mugged while standing at the ATM's? How many people have their checks stolen from their mail? Now, how many people, when mugged, get their cash stolen from their wallets? Most you say? Now, do you really thinks it matters to the robber if their victim has a bank account or not when they are demanding their victim's cash?
It is easy to see why the banking firms are behind this. It just means more money for them.
The legislation, which was approved 10-1 on the first of two readings, has the support of Mayor Gavin Newsom.No surprise there as he is as liberal and pro-illegals as they come.
