Mayor Signs Law Creating City ID Cards For Undocumented Residents

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom signed legislation today requiring the city to issue identification cards to illegal immigrants and other residents who can't or won't apply for driver's licenses.

Newsom says he sees the ID card program as a practical move that will make it easier for San Francisco citizens to qualify for local services.

The legislation was approved by city lawmakers last week and is scheduled to take effect at the end of August next year.

Similar initiatives are under consideration in New York City and Miami.
