"Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday proposed security standards and other broad outlines for his long-gestating Chicago municipal ID card program for immigrants and others, but the introduced ordinance leaves several unanswered questions about how it will work.

The proposal requires all city departments to accept the city card as a valid form of identification, a key point for Emanuel as he seeks to give undocumented immigrants a way to identify themselves while filing police reports, buying city stickers, paying bills or seeking to gain access to public buildings.

It remains to be seen whether people who are here illegally feel confident enough that their information is confidential to apply for the cards and then use them at a time when some immigrants reportedly are skittish about even going out to shop in neighborhoods such as Little Village that have large immigrant populations.

The ordinance also will allow applicants to self-designate their gender, a significant option for members of the transgender community who have had trouble with other forms of ID that can make it difficult to choose a gender different from the one on their birth certificates.

Yes Rahm always has been and always will be an idiot. Next he will probably authorize the printing of "Chicago money", to be issued to all illegals, to be spent only by them for what ever the heck they want.:angry:

He also included that no one's address or phone number would be kept. Also, there was no mention of any costs to those getting the cards but a million, more or less, from tax money for the city to do this.
