As Twitchy reported in January 2015, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio defended his decision to issue identification cards to illegal aliens because it would help prevent New York’s non-citizens from feeling like second-class citizens. “We don’t want them to feel left out,” he said.

Now that Donald Trump has won the election, however, Mayor de Blasio might be rethinking his attempt to bring illegals out of the shadows.

NBC New York is reporting that the city might destroy the data amid concerns it might put illegals at risk, possibly employing “a kind of self-destruct provision that allows for the information to be destroyed at the end of the year.”
@NBCNewYork And then we'd have to indict the entire New York State government for destruction of evidence! That would be great!

Hillary Clinton might want to hang on to that office in Brooklyn after all — if there are documents to be destroyed, she really is the most qualified candidate ever.
