ID cards for immigrants

I have a story up on NJ Spotlight this morning on the distribution of ID cards to local residents -- including undocumented immigrants. The cards have sparked some criticism from anti-immigration groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform, who say the cards enable illegals to live normal lives. The criticism is well-founded -- but way off the mark. Allowing people whose only interest is to live normal lives a chance to be somewhat normal seems to me a deeply human response on the part of advocates.

Send me an e-mail.
