VAN DREW DRAFTING LEGISLATION TO PROHIBIT TAXPAYER DOLLARS FROM BEING USED TO PROVIDE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WITH I.D. CARDS
July 26, 2022 — Congressman Van Drew announced he is drafting legislation that would prohibit federal funds from being used to establish a national I.D. system for illegal immigrants.
“The Biden administration has used taxpayer funds to provide illegal immigrants with housing, food, and travel; and now, this administration is considering a program to provide illegal immigrants with I.D. cards,” said Congressman Van Drew. “Not only will this program allow illegal immigrants to travel by airfare, but will also make access to government benefits easier, which could ultimately lead to illegal immigrants being able to vote in our elections.
“This is why I am drafting legislation to prohibit federal funds from being used for any program that provides illegal immigrants with identification documents. The American people are struggling with the highest inflation in 40 years and record high food and gas prices under Biden’s presidency, yet this administration continues to make it worse by worrying about providing more rights to illegal immigrants instead of coming up with solutions to help our people. The United States cannot afford this. The American people cannot afford this.”
