Biden’s ICE to roll out pilot program giving illegal immigrants VALID IDs
05/17/2024 // Olivia Cook // Views

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is set to roll out a pilot program for a controversial, taxpayer-funded ID card for illegal immigrants in a bid to modernize documentation processes for non-citizens.

Initially reported in 2022, the "Secure Docket ID Card" initiative aims to enhance efficiency and security within the immigration system. Despite ICE’s assurances, the program faces significant opposition from conservatives, who view it as a step towards legitimizing illegal immigration.

ICE reportedly plans to roll out the Secure Docket pilot program in the coming weeks targeting illegal immigrants released into the United States. Expected to commence this summer, the program will start with providing approximately 10,000 cards distributed across three or four locations, with Atlanta and Houston being potential sites. The agency emphasized that the program is still in its development phase and subject to alterations.

ICE asserted that the ID cards were designed solely for use by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies – such as ICE, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Citizenship and Immigration Services – and will not serve as official federal identification. Instead, the ID cards will facilitate identity verification and access to essential immigration documents through DHS systems.

Advocates of the ID card program highlighted its potential benefits, including enhanced efficiency, resource optimization and reduced vulnerability to document loss or degradation.

By transitioning from paper documents to secure ID cards, ICE aims to streamline processes and alleviate the agency’s Freedom of Information Act backlog. Additionally, proponents argued that digital modernization would provide ongoing access to critical immigration documents for provisionally released non-citizens.

Conservatives concerned program could facilitate more illegal migration

Despite ICE’s assertions, the Secure Docket Card program faces staunch opposition from conservatives.

Critics expressed broader concerns about the normalization of illegal immigration – which they have described as an "invasion" orchestrated by the federal government – and the potential repercussions of providing identification to unauthorized individuals. They feared that such initiatives could facilitate access to benefits, rights and even the creation of new identities – exacerbating existing immigration challenges.

The controversy surrounding the Secure Docket Card program reflected broader debates within the political landscape.

Republicans have actively opposed President Joe Biden's immigration policies – advocating stricter border controls and measures to deter illegal immigration. Efforts to add a citizenship question to the census and pass border security legislation underscored the contentious nature of the issue.

National Immigration Center for Enforcement president and The Heritage Foundation visiting fellow RJ Hauman told Fox News Digital: "Just in time for the election, the Biden administration is quietly legitimizing a government-sanctioned invasion of our nation.”

“Providing illegal aliens with identification will undoubtedly lead to obtaining other documents, benefits and rights — or create an entirely new identity," added Hauman. "After all, most who cross the border have no identification information in their possession. So, how do we even know who they are?”

Biden claims government needs more funding to fix "broken system" of immigration

In response to criticism, the Biden administration contended that it is addressing a multi-faceted crisis and working with a "broken system" necessitating comprehensive reforms. While advocating for bipartisan solutions, the administration emphasized the need for congressional support and funding to address systemic challenges within the immigration system – but it has failed to drum up enough support from conservatives.

According to data from the CBP, nearly eight million migrants have entered the country since 2021 when Biden assumed office, with over 189,000 individuals in March alone – the most recent month for which data is available.

Against this backdrop, the distribution of 10,000 ID cards under the pilot program would cover less than one percent of the total migrant population. The disparity between the program’s scope and the scale of migration raised questions about its efficacy in addressing border immigration challenges.

Several Republican House lawmakers have voiced opposition to the program by introducing legislation to block its implementation. They argued that providing ID cards to illegal immigrants could incentivize further unauthorized migration – exacerbating existing challenges at the southern border.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), a co-sponsor of the "No IDs for Illegal Act," criticized the program and asserted that it rewarded criminal behavior and undermined the integrity of the immigration system.

In a statement in October 2023, McCaul said: "Under the Biden administration’s open-border policies, illegal border crossings have reached an unsustainable record high, wreaking havoc on our nation’s communities. It’s incomprehensible to think we would reward this criminal behavior by granting those present in the country illegally an ID that all but legitimizes their presence and is intended to be used in ways beyond their immigration proceedings. It’s insulting to those who made sacrifices to follow our nation’s laws to live the American dream."
