When you give FREE benefits to those in our Country illegally, at the tax payers expense, where is the savings in that?
The Guardian, January 2015
"Though all residents will be eligible to apply for the new ID, called IDNYC, undocumented New Yorkers are expected to benefit most. In addition to a free one-year membership to the city’s leading cultural institutions, the IDNYC card will provide undocumented immigrants with the ability to access state buildings and open bank accounts with a number of participating financial institutions."

A municipal ID card will not produce a savings when you include a debit feature, picture ID and other additions that are being suggested by One PHX ID. This of course UNLESS you have a Financial Institution join in the party and have them pick up the costs of the card. And here is why they want to play in this game.......................$$. Additionally, this will give those in our Country Illegally, who reside in Phoenix, a wonderful way to make financial transactions easily. Maybe even set the card up so that $$ can be directly sent back to their Country of origin.
