IDs for illegal immigrants causing stir
A new policy that allows for illegal immigrants to get identification cards is causing angry remarks in Princeton.
The Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund (LALDEF) began distributing the community ID cards to any Princeton resident who requested one, even if the residents are in the United States illegally.
The move prompted a flood of angry emails and phone calls from people against the program, according to an NJ.com report.
The ID cards, endorsed by the local police department, are designed to help officers identify individuals in emergency situations.
More than 25 cards have been issued at the LALDEF's offices in the Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton.
