    This is not politics, because politics is supposed to make sense and attempt to be rationally based, thus this is not politics.

    Just because you're in the country illegally; just because your very presence in the city is a constant illegal offense, is no reason to deny you the rights and privileges granted to all legal residents, except that you won't have to pay taxes? you won't have to serve in the military? We want to create three classes of people in the US: Native-born citizens, nationalized citizens, and illegal aliens? And of the three the illegal alien status conveys more rights than the other two?

    Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, eager to push a bill creating city identification cards accessible to undocumented immigrants, is rolling out endorsements from a list of left-leaning advocacy groups supporting the measure.

    The groups span multiple fields of advocacy, including not only immigrants’ rights, but homelessness, LGBT, health care and progressive policy issues.

    “A photo ID is required in so many aspects of our daily lives, but for homeless New Yorkers it is often too difficult or impossible to obtain. The Council’s Municipal ID proposal would, for the first time, help our neighbors without a permanent home obtain an identification card that is often a key for turning their lives around,” Mary Brosnahan, the president of Coalition for the Homeless, declared in a statement.

    “In particular, the proposal to allow people to self-designate their gender would be particularly helpful to members of the LGBT community and would clear away many of the hurdles transgender New Yorkers face when it comes to legal documents that reflect their true identities,” added Empire State Pride Agenda’s executive director, Nathan Schaefer.
    The legislation, strongly backed by Mayor Bill de Blasio and introduced by Councilmen Carlos Menchaca and Danny Dromm yesterday, seems likely to pass, but Ms. Mark-Viverito and other advocates want to add momentum to that sense of inevitability. Congresswoman Yvette Clarke also announced her support this morning in a statement released by the speaker’s office.
    Only one major critic–Republican State Senator Greg Ball, who represents the Hudson Valley–has publicly lambasted the bill so far, accusing it of providing resources to potential terrorists.
    “Now this crazed Mayor wants to forget all that and empower terrorist thugs looking to kill New Yorkers. This homeland security nightmare must be stopped, before it’s too late,” Mr. Ball raged in an especially fiery statement yesterday.

    I would think we would want to keep track of who we've got running around our country and what they are up to, but that's just me.

    Stop voting for people who want to grant them amnesty. or for people who pretend to be tough on immigration, while doing nothing about it.

    If you mean fake liberals, yes they come in second in general. But on this issue, the fake conservatives are 90% of the problem.

    That's different than voting for people who you know have no intention of even trying, and are just placating a base with nonsense rhetoric.
