Well...... I........ DOn't even have the words for what I'm reading right now.

From the source:




A new municipal ID designed primarily for illegal immigrants will be accepted in Chicago as a valid form of identification to register to vote.

The CityKey will be a government-issued photo identification card available to all Chicago residents regardless of immigration status, criminal record, housing status, or gender identity, according to the city clerk’s website.

So, I mean..... I'm completely dumbfounded. Is this the "work-around" for the Voter ID laws? Requiring state issued identification is too racist (even though you need ID for cigarettes, liquor, notarizing documents, buying a gun, buying media rated MA/R, entering a bar, going to the Doctors office, driving a vehicle, getting a library card, registering a vehicle, THE LIST GOES ON) so they develop their own form of ID to allow illegal votes?

I know that Chicago and Illinois as a whole have a certain knack for completely ignoring the Constitution, law, and just about everything.... But this has gone WAY too far.

If this hangs around and gets attention, I can imagine certain cities in California (if not the state as a whole) will be the next to adopt similar side stepping measures to allow a larger democratic vote.

It will have to be an acceptable form of ID to register to vote if it’s abailable to any and all residents, as many may not have drivers licenses. That doesn’t mean they’re giving illegals the ability to vote.

This wont effect the norm.

State Board of Elections spokesman Matt Dietrich says there is no state requirement to prove citizenship while registering to vote. He’s not expecting a surge in potential voter fraud cases because the process will remain the same.

The article continues with
''“When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship,” Dietrich said. “You are signing a legal document that says, ‘Yes, I am a citizen.’ But no one who registers to vote is required to bring in, for example, a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. That’s something that you check the box, and you attest to it.”

Dietrich believes the penalty for illegally registering to vote is steep enough to discourage those who might be considering it.''

So it seems that the crux of the issue is that the state has, and has had, no requirement to prove citizenship to register. This is where the problem is, not in this new ID.

The national guard needs to be called in to arrest and prosecute the Chicago city council or whoever allowed this to happen. The whole state needs to be looked at as a breach of national security.

Except you still have to be a citizen to vote. So no, they are not legally able to vote, with or without this new ID.

El Chapo's "home port" drug corridor city, brought to you by the DEA, ATF, Bush, Obama, State Dept. All those gangstas he shipped up there to run the drug racket 'need' to vote.

You must understand, there is precedent already in Chicago....

Alderman's Father Charged with Selling Fake IDs to Illegal Immigrants



Federal prosecutors on Tuesday added the father of a Chicago alderman to a fake-ID case in which 22 people were charged last month. Authorities cracked down on the operation in late April, saying they had shut down a $2 million operation that cranked out as many as 100 phony ID cards a day. Employees working in shifts made bogus driver's licenses, Social Security cards and resident alien cards.


Alderman in Chicago is basically city council member...

Then it should not be a problem to allow puertoricans (american citizens) in the Island to vote for president.

If they really do allow illegal immigrants to vote in our national elections, then it is our duty as American citizens to declare war on Chicago.

Read between the lines. It would be accepted to register to vote [ nothing about illegals susing it].
And there are laws that provide criminal penalties for non citizens who vote. Unless they change those laws. every illegal that votes risks a prison term

LOL.

Haven't you been paying attention.
Between the death toll and the on going shootings daily there, along with idiots there actually talking about bringing the U.N in.
Chicago is already a war zone.

Poverty-check
Crime-check
Corrupt government-check
Illegals and gang violence flourish-check

There you go, you have a mini 3rd world.

That's why I think a state of emergency should be declared for Chicago and the army,national guard, and homeland security to step in and root this problem out once and for all.

It's a nice thought, but it wont ever happen.

Chicago's gov. is so corrupt, it would have to be out right replaced to even begin to fix the problems there.
And it's already a Democratic Utopia there.

Chicago's corruption needs crime and poverty to function.
Kick backs and private prisons are a booming business.

They need crime to justify waste and spending.

And there's the whole, let them kill each other experiment.
Cause they really don't care in solving the issue.
There's no money in that.

Chicago is also financially dead.
There's no money, they are in debt.

And to honestly fix the cancer culture of Chicago, it would require people to face some harsh truths about what breeds a society like this.
