If you haven’t heard, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and city of Chicago will now allow illegals to use their ID card or Chicago “CityKey” Card specifically to vote in upcoming federal elections. Of course, no worries, Democrats have ensured voters that this won’t be a problem because illegals are going to be deterred from voter fraud. OMG!
Back in December, the “CityKey” or the municipal identification card was created in Chicago to help bring allegedly undocumented immigrants “out of the shadows” with free enrollment for the first 100,000 applicants, followed by a $10 fee.
The fee is $5 for those 17 and under. Senior citizens 65 and older get the cards free. The fee is also be waived for low-income and homeless Chicagoans, veterans, victims of domestic violence and participants in the One Summer Chicago jobs program.
Veterans can opt for an insignia beneath their photo. Cardholders can also have the option to include medical information, an emergency contact and declare their intention to donate organs.
The wonderful Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spent over $1 million in 2017 to roll i out the Chicago “CityKey” cards and has allocated another $1 million in 2018.
The “3-in-1” card will launch citywide in March after a public education campaign and a first-quarter test to “ensure security.”
Ensure security? Are you kidding me?! Come on man! This is just another way to collect money and allow illegals to vote. It’s the only way Democrats stay in charge. Afterall, most of the smart people are moving out of the city or even out of the state if they can.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and City Clerk Anna Valencia held a City Hall news conference Thursday to unveil the name, cost and design of the ID and promote the program by printing the first cards.
“The CityKey is the key to unlock opportunities for all Chicagoans and all of the great things our city has to offer. … For some residents, it can mean access to basic service and a better life,” Valencia said.
Uh! HELLO! Isn’t the whole reason for becoming a LEGAL citizen to have a better life and gain the rights and freedoms of Americans?
So, it looks like these wonderful illegals have just been given permission by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to skip that process. Nice, huh?
Emanuel said what started off as an ID to “help the undocumented community feel — not locked out, but part of the city” has broadened to include returning veterans, the homeless, ex-offenders and domestic violence victims.
“The CityKey — will bring all those different communities and more that are on the periphery, on the sideline into our city. And when we say, `Welcome,’ we mean, `Welcome,’ ” the mayor said.
Of course, that’s after he already made Chicago a Sanctuary City. Of course, they added veterans and homeless, and others so you would feel guilty about not supporting the “CityKey”. Afterall, why would you not allow veterans, homeless and domestic violence victims to have an ID?
What the heck? Doesn’t Mayor Rahm Emanuel know the veterans already can get a ID through the state, just like all the other LEGAL citizens? He doesn’t need to create another ID for them? But of course, these are JUST ID’s or “CityKey” cards for Chicago, right?
Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on to add:
“If you do not want an ex-offender to be a repeat offender. … If you want somebody who’s undocumented to feel comfortable to be able to drive their child to school, they have to be part of the city. … We don’t even think about it — all of us who access every part of this city. When somebody says, `Can I see your driver’s license?’ what that unlocks, what that smooths out and all the speed bumps that literally get eliminated because you have a driver’s license. It has your picture. It has your access. And you’re permitted in.”
Hello! You IDIOT! They are ILLEGAL! What part of ILLEGAL do you NOT understand?? You moron!
Of course, Valencia once again assured applicants that the personal information they provide will not end up in the hands of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“The only thing that we share in our data system will be the unique ID number that you get. It will be the date issued and the date of expiration. That’s all we have in our data system. We will not be retaining any documents,” the clerk said.
Ok! Right?! How many of us truly believe THAT?!
Oh, but don’t panic…
To secure a municipal ID, applicants will need to produce documents that grant them four points — three for identity and one for residency. Dozens of documents could meet those standards, including a high school transcript and a veterans discharge form. Applicants also will be able to self-designate their gender.
WTH? I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure illegals don’t meet those standards.
Oh, but don’t worry….
In New York City, 65 percent of those who signed up for municipal ID’s were lured by the promise of discounts and ancillary benefits.
That’s why Chicago’s municipal ID will double as a Ventra card and a library card with discounts to be announced as well.
“We already have a commitment from a sporting team, from a museum, from some local businesses and a theater that we’ll be rolling out in January and February,” Valencia said.
Of course they do! It’s called CHEAP LABOR! They provide ID’s for illegals. Businesses get cheap labor in return! Such a deal!
Illinois News reported,
“[State Board of Elections Spokesman Matt] Dietrich says there is no state requirement to prove citizenship while registering to vote. He’s not expecting a surge in potential voter fraud cases because the process will remain the same.
‘When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship,’ Dietrich said. ’You are signing a legal document that says, ‘Yes, I am a citizen.’ But no one who registers to vote is required to bring in, for example, a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. That’s something that you check the box, and you attest to it.’
Dietrich believes the penalty for illegally registering to vote is steep enough to discourage those who might be considering it.
‘The main thing that would happen is deportation,’ Dietrich said. ‘If you’re not a citizen, and you have any thoughts of ever attaining citizenship, registering to vote is almost an instant trigger that when you apply for citizenship, you will be deported. That’s one of the first things they check.
Oh, so don’t worry….it’s not like illegals will check the WRONG box! Are you kidding me?! How insane is THAT!?
Like it wasn’t bad enough that somewhere between 3-6 million illegals voted in the 2016 election. Chicago and New York, and most of the other large cities by Democrats, now what to ADD to the mess.
Here’s Tucker Carlson on the topic:
“Why would the city, in the middle of the various crises it’s facing, take all this time and all this money to serve the needs of people who are in the country illegally over citizens?” Tucker Carlson asked immigration attorney Francisco Hernandez on his program.
Hernandez said that illegal immigrants have risked their lives to get to the U.S., and this is a way for them to “sign the guestbook,” get documented and join the community.
Carlson pointed out that many of the illegal immigrants who are working in the U.S. are doing so with fake Social Security cards and federal documents, which is a felony.
Tucker Carlson is right,
“Why would you give special privileges for someone who’s committing an open felony?” They are committing fraud!
Talk about INSANITY! Does Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel really think the MS-13 gang members are driving their kids to school? Come on man!
I’m sorry but this is just INSANE! It is like Chicago just approved illegals to vote. Do you really think these names WON’T be added to the voter ID files? Seriously? Give me a frickin’ break!
Oh….and by the way Mr. Mayor, the first 1,000 “CityKey” cards…SOMEONE paid for that $1 million roll out….they would be called legal abiding citizens who paid taxes. Just for the record, your so-called “CityKey” cards were not FREE!
