Emily Tucker, the spokeswoman for the George Soros-funded Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), is counseling sanctuary cities by telling them to give out municipal IDs to illegal immigrants in an effort to make their lives easier. But she warns that they must get rid of any data they have on those individuals. “ICE can’t get data that you don’t keep,” she said.
CPD is based in New York and consists of failed chapters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).
Approximately 15 cities have created special IDs for illegal aliens. “If you’re a citizen, you don’t think about what a privilege it is to have an ID or how often you need it,” commented Tucker, who warned that the few cities which do retain identity and residency papers on their illegal residents must stop that practice..
Tucker recommends that all cities should only ask for the information needed to administer the program, and that information should then disappear.
In addition, CPD is advocating for all U.S. citizens to apply for the state and city-wide ID cards, and public benefits should be available to anyone wanting an ID, which would promote their use and hamper the efforts of ICE officers to easily identify illegal immigrants.
In 2016, Soros’ Open Society Foundation awarded $705,000 in grants to CPD to “support efforts challenging anti-Muslim sentiment” and “support advocacy on access to economic opportunity.”
Soros has also spent roughly $100,000 on efforts to help illegal immigrants hire attorneys in order to avoid deportation.
