Municipal ID Law Has ‘Delete in Case of Tea Party’ Clause

Tara Palmeri, New York Post, February 16, 2015

Get the shredders ready–the Tea Party could be coming.

The city’s new municipal ID program allows for personal info provided by applicants to be destroyed at the end of 2016, in case a conservative Republican wins the White House and demands the data, the law’s co-sponsor told The Post on Monday.

City Councilman Carlos Menchaca (D-Brooklyn) said the measure was crafted so data submitted by those seeking the cards can be destroyed on Dec. 31, 2016.

The cards are aimed at undocumented immigrants.

“In case a Tea Party Republican comes into office and says, ‘We want all of the data from all of the municipal ID programs in the country,’ we’re going to take the data,” he explained.

The next president assumes office Jan. 20, 2017.

“That date is an important signal to the future of immigration reform. That allows us to prepare for any new leadership,” Menchaca said.

In order to get an ID, residents must provide their names, addresses, aliases, dates of birth and other information, making it easy for the feds to identify undocumented immigrants.


The cards were first available early last month. Demand has been overwhelming, with more than 200,000 appointments made for the cards in less than a month.

    I bet NYC would turn over the list of gun permits in a minute. Shows you the true agenda of the Liberal/Progressives.

    • Wing-nut.

      Didn’t New York State already publicize a concealed carry list? May of been a county, don’t recall.

      • John Smith

        No, local papers used public access laws to publicize those.

    • Anon

      Lol…they already have. One newspaper actually published names, addresses etc. of quite a few….and got sued when one of the people they published had their home targeted to steal their guns.

  • WR_the_realist

    The municipal IDs should expire the day the documentation supporting them is shredded.

    • TruthBeTold

      You and I know they never should have been issued.

      • WR_the_realist

        Of course. But I always thought the only good thing about the program is that we’d have documentation of who is here illegally.

    Rick Santorum’s odds are long, and it doesn’t seem like neither Jeff Sessions nor Kris Kobach want to run.

    I don’t think they have anything to worry about, if they’re worried about the next President actually caring about enforcing immigration law.

    • DonReynolds

      I agree. When the immigration laws are finally enforced it will be a patriot mob that does it……and they will do it because they will refuse to surrender to the invader.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Oh, don’t you little democrats worry about a thing! Don’t you know that over 90% of elected republicans decide to act just like liberal democrats as soon as they take office? I mean, most republicans plan on voting for either Jeb or Romney in 2016. These two wom.. er, I mean, men have already stated numerous times that they plan to “reach out” to more minorities.

    • evilsandmich

      This smells like vote baiting, like when the black preachers tell their tool congregations that they better vote (D) or the big bad (R) will round them up and put them back on the cotton farm or some such twaddle.

      • newscomments70

        I remember when Joe Biden said something like that. “The republicans want to put you back in chains!”, or something like that. All nonsense. Republican and Democratic politicians want to exterminate whites. No chains are involved.

    • bilderbuster

      The Dems know that but they have to put on their part of the show and act worried.

  • Truthseeker

    Enemies within our gates, within our systems of government. That’s all these crooks are.

    • ejXinMI

      I don’t believe the United States has ever been burdened with as many traitors as we are now– especially in government– the highest offices even. We just aren’t equipped to deal with large-scale treason. The gaggle from Communism’s hey-day was trivial compared to this. And I reject the idea that the Civil War was treasonous. Confederates were/are not routinely castigated as traitors– most everyone accepts they had legitimate gripes. How can we deal with so many…?

      • DonReynolds

        My suggestion……give them a deadline to be out of town or be on the street with their own weapons. We can know that by that deadline, our country will be cleansed….one way or the other.

        The word ‘liberal’ accurately described every anti-White, anti-American person in this country.

  • Guest

    Bloomberg is definitely a race realist, however he’s also a control freak.

  • superlloyd

    Third world corruption by third world immigrants such as Carlos Menchaca. These criminals are able to brazen about their criminality in the justified belief that they are beyond the law.

  • connorhus

    This kinda shows that the warmup to the fight we have coming has entered the intelligence keeping stage. A pretty good sign of where things are headed.

    • bilderbuster

      It entered that stage decades ago.

  • Reynardine

    Hooray! The treasured Latino tradition of corruption has finally hit New York!

    Wow vibrant, such diverse, much justice!

  • haroldcrews

    The database needs to be hacked and its information secured.

    • ejXinMI

      That’s just what I was thinking too…

    • nicholasstix

      I just said that to my son! (But I see you’d already posted it.)

  • bigred0721

    The Democrats are finally admitting that the government can’t be trusted with any sort of registration list.

  • Fortunately, we don’t need a database to determine that someone looks and acts like a Spanish speaking, non-white, low-IQ Third World slob. We aren’t dealing with Canadians here.

  • Luca

    This country needs an immigration enema so badly. A new republican president will have only one dilemma, where to stick the hose, LA or NYC?

    • IstvanIN

      Flush out the cr……..

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      LA is a no-brainer. With our desirable climate, all the whites that have been forced out by the browns will return and it will return to being an American city. But it would require extraordinary measures, a regular Fleet isn’t going to clean out all the treasonous elites here, some heads would have to roll.

  • italian guy

    Isn’t this treason? shouldn’t they be arrested?

  • DonReynolds

    Destruction of public records is a crime.
    Throw everyone who is involved in jail for a long time.
    Thanks, sucker.

    • Destruction of public records is not only a crime, but if those records have been subpoenaed, their destruction constitutes two additional felonies: obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.

      • DonReynolds

        Thank you, Mr. Scott.
        Always the best comments come from you.
        Absolutely correct.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      At the time when the Patriot Act passed, I was working for the Los Angeles Public Library. There was a big stink about how the PA enabled snooping into library patron records, so the Library decided to destroy all of them, and stop collecting identifiers (e.g. SSNs) to positively identify patrons. It didn’t take long for “patrons” to get wind of this and abuse the system from top to bottom. Agree or disagree with that provision of the Patriot Act, this sort of administrative subversion of law is commonplace in libtard land.

  • dd121

    The rifts in this society can’t be mended through the peaceful political process. The leftists won’t allow it.

  • Anon

    Yeah umm….how are these people “undocumented” when you keep such data on record about them?

    • brior

      Very good point.

  • Anna Tree

    If we ever have to invalidate/nullify something is the law itself. Actually that is already part of the problem, what we should do ASAP is to write a law stating that all illegals must be automatically and immediately ousted of the country. And if no passport, DNA results will do the job.

  • brior

    And whites are racist? This is La Raza at it’s finest ….
