Municipal ID Card
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday signed into law a plan to offer a municipal identification card to residents regardless of their immigration status.
Advocates for immigrants said Wednesday that a proposed New York City municipal ID card will help ensure that all New Yorkers can obtain crucial city services.
All city residents will be eligible for the cards. But they will be targeted to those who cannot easily get photo ID cards because they are not legal U.S. residents.
Under the law, city agencies would be be required to accept the card, making it easier for New Yorkers to access city services where identification is required.
