NYC’s New and Improved ID Cards for Illegal Immigrants Now Offer More Free Stuff

And why wouldn’t they[1]:

The city’s new ID cards will do more than just give undocumented immigrants identification — they’ll grant free memberships to top cultural institutions, from Carnegie Hall to the Bronx Zoo.

And officials hinted the cards eventually will provide discounts at movie theaters and other more commercial entertainment venues.

It’s part of a plan to make the cards — which will debut in January — appeal to a wide range of New Yorkers, not just to undocumented immigrants, Mayor de Blasio said.

Hizzoner made the issuance of ID cards a cornerstone of his mayoral campaign. The cards, he said, would help undocumented immigrants access services they could not receive without identification.

Meanwhile, my kids stay at home, because I can’t afford to take them all right now.

That’s right. I have to pay for my entry into the zoo.

If only I were trapped in the shadows, I could take my kids to see the lions in Bronx Zoo too.

Try to wrap your head around that logic.
