Oakland City Council Approves Oakland Municipal ID Card program

Last night, the city of Oakland followed through on a proposal previously reported on the ImmigrationProf blog and moved toward becoming the third (along with San Francisco, and New Haven, Connecticut) city in the United States to issue identification cards to all its residents, including undocumented immigrants. The city council approved the proposal but the program won't launch until council members approve a plan for implemenation.

The Oakland City ID Card Coalition began working on the program a year ago. Supporters say the cards would boost civic participation and cooperation with law enforcement.
