U.S. immigration authorities are aiming to issue photo ID cards to immigrants in deportation proceedings. The plan is still being developed as a pilot program by ICE. The cards will not be an official form of federal identification but will be used by the Department of Homeland Security. The cards would allow immigrants to access information about their cases online. The Biden administration is hoping for $10 million in a budget proposal for the next fiscal year to fund it but it is not clear if the money would be used to cover the pilot or a broader program.
