PHOENIX – Phoenix officials are considering issuing city identification cards to immigrants in response to persistent concerns brought on by Arizona’s immigration law.
In a memo from October 2 , Councilman Michael Nowakowski said he would like to explore the creation of city-issued IDs for immigrants that have a Mexican Matricula card or equivalent foreign identification, but not a valid form of state ID.
Nowakowski specifically cites “a new hurdle as our police department integrates section 2(b) of Senate Bill 1070” as a reason for the new cards.
