Illegal Migrants to Receive Federal IDs 

The program was established in 2022. 

Federal identification cards known as ICE Secure Docket Cards will soon be provided to illegal immigrants through Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The cards will look similar to driver’s licenses or non-driver identification. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is stressing that they “will not be an official form of federal identification,” but will simply be an alternative to paper documents that many carry crossing into the U.S.

The cards will have clear ICE logos and will include relevant information about the holder, along with a QR code to enable officials to access the person’s case file. Biographic details will be included, and the cards will have “cutting edge” security features so as not to be subject to counterfeiting. 

A spokesperson for ICE said, “Moving to a secure card will save the agency millions, free up resources, and ensure information is quickly accessible to DHS officials while reducing the agency’s FOIA backlog. For provisionally released noncitizens, the digital modernization will provide ongoing access to important immigration documents through the secure card and connected portal.” 

Some members of the House Oversight Committee have expressed disapproval of the move, saying it is “encouraging illegal immigration by rewarding illegal immigrants for breaking our laws.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Acting Director Patrick Lechleitner as he heads Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
  • For Secretary Mayorkas to seek God’s wisdom as he leads the Department of Homeland Security.
  • For God’s will to be accomplished through the immigration policies of the president’s administration.
