Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, proposed Tuesday using text messages to remind people who are inside the U.S. on visas when their visas are scheduled to run out.
Youve got a month to go on your visa. You got two weeks to go. You got a week to go. You got a day to go, and the idea that people know that we know that theyre here, we know that their time is running out, and were watching them, Carper said, describing ways the possible text messages that can be used to remind people when their visa will expire.
Carper said he got the idea while he was visiting the U.S.-Mexico border and remembered a program called Text for Baby created by Johnson & Johnson that sent reminders to new parents via text messages.

One nice thing about this is if the temporary visitor does have a cell phone, you can track it when they overstay and promptly depor... oh, who am I kidding. Just come on in and stay until the next amnesty.

And if they ignore that they’ll be sent a strongly worded text.
How ‘bout an exploding collar with a count-down clock?
A "reminder" if someone violates are immigration laws? IIRC,US Attorneys send Federal indictments to those who "forget" to pay their taxes.

Badges and/or handcuffs are likely more effective.

Sure, and other criminals always obey all the laws.
We are ruled over by idiots.

It is a requirement that politicians MUST have single digit IQs. We don’t want them walking around unsupervised; they might hurt themselves.
That said, in DE it seems that NEGATIVE IQs are preferred so they can relate better to the government-educated dolts who live here. Fortunately, I was NOT “educated” here.
