Biden’s pick Buttigieg agrees to look for emails related to ID card program for illegal immigrants

From Fox News:

The incoming Biden administration’s nominee for transportation secretary will be busy producing emails for a conservative government watchdog group about his role in establishing a special residential ID card program for illegal immigrants.

Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., agreed to search his personal emails for messages concerning the “Community Resident Card,” also known as the SBID program for illegal immigrants in the city. By agreeing to produce email messages, Buttigieg will avoid being deposed in a public records lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch in Indiana state court.

Judicial Watch made the agreement public the same day President-elect Joe Biden announced the nomination of his one-time Democratic primary rival to run the Department of Transportation.

In December 2016, then-Mayor Buttigieg worked with the La Casa de Amistad Inc., a Latino nonprofit advocacy group in South Bend, to create the ID card program. The nonprofit produced and paid for the ID cards, meaning the program was not subject to government transparency laws.
