Jul 26, 2007 Thanks, New Haven, for issuing ID’s for all
Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace…
We all live in one world. The least governments can do is to issue every applicant a photo identification, regardless of immigration status. New Haven, Connecticut, started doing just that on July 24, 2007. Please encourage your local, county, state and federal governments to follow suit.
I grew up just twenty miles from New Haven, and previously associated it with the nation’s best pizza, Toad’s Place, and WPLR radio. Now, at the head of the list, I happily add identification cards for all, and a past pro-drug policy reform police chief who rejected the DARE program.
In appreciation, I plan to spend some money in New Haven next time I am nearby. Jon Katz.
