Oakland To Give Illegals ID, Debit Cards

We almost missed this bit of news, discreetly published on a Saturday morning during a holiday weekend by the Associated Press:

Calif. city’s ID card would double as debit card

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Oakland, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California city is moving forward with plans for a municipal identification card that is being touted as the first in the nation that would double as a full-fledged debit card.

The Oakland City Council this month awarded a contract to issue the cards.

The goal is to help any city residents, including illegal immigrants, who may have difficulty obtaining a state-issued ID.

Card holders would also be able to load money onto their cards and use them wherever ATM cards are welcome. Oakland officials say that would allow people without bank accounts to avoid high check-cashing fees or the need to walk around with large amounts of cash.

San Francisco and Washington, D.C., are among the other cities that offer municipal identification cards, although neither includes a full debit option.

— Yet. Still, what a great way to launder drug money and other ill gotten income!

You can load up this debit card with thousands of dollars – untracked by the IRS – and the then spend the money when and where you please, no questions asked.

This must be Jerry Brown’s subtle way of thanking illegal aliens for their vote.

    Is this the same Bay Area where San Francisco that voted to harass the homeless for “sitting or lying” on the sidewalk?

    CALIFORNACATION on the sly.
    Brain dead run the system there.
    Can’t wait until we only have 56 states.

    Well I hope Western Union gets upset at this, as it will likely cut down significantly on the business they do shipping untaxed money out of the country back to Mexico and points beyond.
