“Maria Sanchez was arrested on May 6, 2008 by investigators of the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office for stealing and using the identity of Veronica Arias.
Sanchez used the name, SSN, DOB, of Veronica Arias who is a living resident of Texas.
As a post-arrest procedure, Maria Sanchez was processed under the 287G program and identified as an illegal alien. She was subsequently processed for deportation.
Sanchez was provided work notes by the Alamance County Health Department to return to work at HondaPower Equipment (this creates substantial tax implications for the real Veronica Arias who is a lawful U.S. resident/citizen).”…Alamance County NC sheriff report 2008
“U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, investigating the issue”
“What he learned was astonishing. In 2013 and 2014 alone, ICE set loose more than 66,000 illegal immigrant criminals who had over 166,000 convictions (30,000 for drunk or drug driving, 414 kidnapping, over 11,000 rapes or other sexual assaults and 395 homicides). Already thousands of those have already been convicted of new crimes in the U.S., including felonies, since their release.”…WND October 25, 2015

From Faith Action.
“In 2012, FaithAction was awarded the GPD Chief’s Award for this bridge-building work, and with the support of the GPD launched the FaithAction ID initiative in the summer of 2013, providing identification for ANY RESIDENT in our community who may not have access to government issued forms of ID”
“FaithAction ID cards provide participants with a verifiable form of ID that designated law enforcement, health centers, schools, businesses, and cultural arts organizations can use to better identify, serve, and protect you. The card also reflects your support of safer, more inclusive and united communities for all. The FaithAction ID card is officially accepted by certain partners (discussed during the orientation), and may or may not be accepted by others, depending on the policy of each institution.”

It is easy to get a legal ID in NC.
“Proof of Citizenship & Residency
To obtain a North Carolina ID card, you must be a North Carolina resident. Documents that you may present as proof of residency are listed in Table (3) of the approved list of acceptable documents.
You must also be a U.S. citizen or be able to demonstrate legal presence in the U.S. Documents that may be used to demonstrate legal presence are listed in Tables (7) and (8) of the approved list of acceptable documents.”
Getting an ID in NC is easy as long as you are here legally.

“Greensboro police support non-government issued ID cards
“More than 200 people are closer to having ID cards Friday night. The cards are not government issued, but some local law enforcement agencies support giving them out. This is happening even in time when the Trump administration is talking tough about any help for people who are in the country illegally.
FaithAction is a group that supports immigrants, legal or illegal, and it has the support of law enforcement agencies like Greensboro police.
“When someone gets pulled over the first thing police asked for is identification and if they’re not able to provide that, they could potentially take that person to jail,” said David Fraccaro, the executive director of FaithAction. “That would mean taking our law-enforcement off the street and into a magistrate’s office for hours, when we have bigger fish to fry.”
Greensboro police say the IDs have worked well in the three years since FaithAction started this. To get the cards people must pay $10, go to an orientation, provide a different form of ID, like a passport, and have proof of their address.
Tough talk on immigration from the Trump administration has them organization wondering about the ID card program’s future.
“Don’t feel positive about the executive orders but we are feeling positive about the tremendous support from local law enforcement, who want the same thing we do… a safer and inclusive more united community,” Fraccaro said.
The Greensboro Police Department says it will continue to accept the IDs because its goal is to create a safer community and the IDs help.”
“a safer …. community”???
How is allowing illegal immigrants carte blanche to roam the city making the community safer?
