Just a quick little squiblet here. Mayor de Blasio has weighed in on ID cards for illegals:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, said on Monday that giving identification cards to illegal aliens allows them to feel like citizens and enjoy some of the same benefits as actual citizens.
“We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens,” de Blasio was quoted as saying in a National Public Radio website article. “We don’t want them to feel left out.”
Uh, Bill, I don’t know how to break this to you, but you’re off on a wild hair with all this first class and second class citizen stuff. You see, the whole point about their being illegal aliens is that they’re not citizens at all, regardless of class.
