Starting today, New Haven, CT is offering ID cards to all residents--regardless of immigration status. For example, a library card or a rental agreement is enough to show "proof of residency" according to the city's sheet of ID requirements. According to this report, 50 people signed up yesterday in advance of the official start of the program today. The city's website has more information on this proposal. Meanwhile, New York City may be considering a similar ID card program.
