The Biden Department of Homeland Security in Washington is working to provide illegal aliens with government ID cards to access “commonly used documents and services,” according to an annual report out Friday from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“The ICE Secure Docket Card (SDC) project [ … ] offers a uniform, durable card provided to noncitizens upon release, and facilitates reliable access to commonly lost or damaged immigration-related paperwork,” the report states. “The deal for America’s surging population of illegal immigrants just keeps getting sweeter,” The Western Journal remarked.
NEW: Fox has obtained images of the ICE Secure Docket Card, which was announced last year and would give ID cards to illegal immigrants.

“The SDC will be integrated with the Unified Immigration Portal that ICE and CBP officers and agents use in the field and the ICE Portal to allow noncitizens access to commonly used documents and services,” the report added. “ICE expects the project to ease ICE personnel workload when encountering noncitizens with the card [ … ]”
The SDC is “part of a pilot program to modernize various forms of documentation provided to provisionally released noncitizens through a consistent, verifiable, secure card,” said an ICE official in a statement. “The secure card will contain a photo, biographic identifiers, and cutting-edge security features to the mutual benefit of the government and noncitizens.”

“Specifics of the program are still under development, but a primary goal of the SDC is to improve current, inconsistent paper forms that often degrade rapidly in real-world use,” the statement added. The statement also said ICE will consider expanding the ID card for more illegal immigrants after seeing the results from the initial trial effort.
“It’s a normalization of illegal immigration,” John Fabbricatore, a former ICE official and advisory board member at the National Immigration Center for Enforcement, told Breitbart, adding that “the ultimate goal of the Biden administration is to limit illegal aliens’ face-to-face contact with DHS as much as possible.”
CNN reported in 2022 that illegal immigrants can use the SDC as a form of identification — the way citizens and legal residents use their driver’s license or state-issued government ID card. Furthermore, an unnamed Department of Homeland Security official told CNN that the cards “could also be utilized at airports for travel in the future.”
