Biden administration to provide ID cards to illegals that they may eventually be able to use at airport checkpoints

WASHINGTON, DC - After a record-setting month for illegal immigrants entering the United States, the Biden administration plans to provide them with ID cards that will give them access to many government services, The Western Journal reported. 

Citing Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) latest annual report, the Biden administration will begin providing something called the ICE Secure Docket Card (SDC), which “offers a uniform, durable card provided to noncitizens upon release, and facilitates reliable access to commonly lost or damaged immigration-related paperwork.” 

Buried deep in the report ostensibly to hide it, the report for FY 2023 goes on to say the card will “allow noncitizens access to commonly used documents and services.” 

A CNN report noted the card can be used as a valid form of identification, and an unnamed DHS official said the card “could also be utilized at airports for travel in the future.” 

This is occurring only 22 years after the September 11 terrorist attacks, and critics have pointed out that legal citizens still have to remove their shoes and dump their bottles of water at TSA security points while the ID cards issued to non-vetted illegals who came across our border in violation of federal law, with no paper trail as to their true identity, will potentially be able to use this ID card at airports for travel.

According to an ICE official in a statement, the SDC is “part of a pilot program to modernize various forms of documentation provided to provisionally released noncitizens through a consistent, verifiable, secure card.” 

“The secure card will contain a photo, biographic identifiers, and cutting-edge security features to the mutual benefit of the government and noncitizens,” the statement said. 

“Specifics of the program are still under development, but a primary goal of the SDC is to improve current, inconsistent paper forms that often degrade rapidly in real-world use.” 

ICE said they will “consider further expansion” of the program depending on how the initial version works out. 

Fox News obtained images of the ISD card, initially announced last year. 

The program was initially announced in 2022, with ICE saying the card “will save money, free up resources, and allow better access to information.” 

The program was initially authorized as part of the 2023 Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill and received $10 million in funding. 

A former ICE official, John Fabbricatore, an advisory member at the National Immigration Center for Enforcement, slammed the program, claiming it “normalizes” illegal immigration. 

“It’s a normalization of illegal immigration,” Fabbricatore told Breitbart News, while adding that “the ultimate goal of the Biden administration is to limit illegal aliens’ face-to-face contact with DHS as much as possible.” 

Customs and Border Protection data showed there were 3.2 million border encounters in FY-2023, not including so-called gotaways, with 2.5 million taking place at the southern border. Those numbers set records for the most in U.S. history. 

Last quarter, roughly three-quarters of a million illegal aliens crossed the border into the United States, a number that would not appear to be sustainable for the health of the country.
