ID Cards for Immigrants in California
Under the mayor’s proposal, Los Angeles would create an official city photo ID card for undocumented immigrants that could also be used as a prepaid ATM card for their private bank account. Card applicants would have to meet “strict” criteria, the mayor’s office told the newspaper. The card, which officials say would look like a student ID, would include a photo, street address, date of birth, hair and eye color, height and weight. Law enforcement agencies could choose whether to recognize the card, and it would not substitute for a driver’s license, the mayor’s office said.
