Within days of Donald Trump's election as U.S. president last November, New York City Mayor and Democrat Bill de Blasio drew a line in the sand. He said the city would not share personal data, collected through a program designed to help illegal immigrants, with the federal government. The city launched the "IDNYC" program in 2015. The program was designed partly to make it easier for immigrants to get government-issued identification cards, which are necessary to apply for social services and open bank accounts. Officials say New York City has issued more than a million cards. Now, a New York judge has backed DeBlasio's position. He ruled on Friday that New York City officials should be allowed to destroy copies of those personal documents--provided an appeal launched by two State Assembly members is lost.
