SF's Illegal Alien ID - and a Possible Response

Hey folks,

I have been amassing a fair amount of stuff regarding San Francisco's proposal to give municipal ID cards to illegal aliens. As you may have heard, the Board of Stupidvisors has passed, by a vote of 10-1, a resolution calling for the program to be implemented. The lone dissenter was Sean Elsbernd - who objected to the costs of the program. Mayor Gavin Newsom, who has remained firm in his pandering stance towards illegal immigration, has said he will sign the legislation when it reaches his desk.

First off, I would like to issue an appeal.

This handing out of municipal IDs will not happen for at least another 6 months. Judging from what I have read in the papers and online, there seems to be more than enough support to mount a demonstration of some kind. The primary stumbling block, of course, is safety; whoever organizes this will have to work very closely with the SFPD to obtain some guarantees as far as police presence goes. Remember, I am a former lefty - I know these people - and I know that those of you concerned about being assaulted while exercising your first amendment rights are JUSTIFIED in your fear! I shudder to think what would happen to us if we voiced our opinion without police protection.

I'm asking readers for links to other organizations in the Bay Area that would be interested in participating in or even helping to organize such a demonstration.

I can tell you that support for this program, even in San Francisco, is not as broad or as deep as one might think. Even in a poll in the rabidly pro-illegal alien San Francisco Chronicle, the response to the question "Like the idea of municipal ID cards for SF residents?" was 83% NO. No issue generates more comments on the SFGate's web page. And there is virtually no all-out support for the measure; most of those supporting it are people who have surrendered to the idea that California is or will soon be a Mexican protectorate. Installing a spine in such people will not be easy.

For now, though, here's a link to San Francisco ID program: Legitimizing illegal immigration by Cinnamon Stillwell's which ran in the Chronicle last week.

oh c'mon it's not so bad.

if all the illegals flock to get a card that is literally useless, then the feds can grab it, knock on doors and find every single one in the city limits, and put them on a slow boat to their home countries.

easy, simple and SF pays the bills and the feds kick 'em out!

always look on the bright side of life, dude. heck under FOIA you could ask for the list, and kick 'em out yourself, if you wanted!
