Skip to comments.A national ID card in 2010?

A new attempt at immigration reform may require a biometric ID card for all working Americans. Privacy advocates aren't pleased
National identification cards, long feared by privacy advocates, may soon become mandatory for American workers. In a bipartisan effort to curb the hiring of illegal immigrants, Sens. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have proposed legislation that, if passed, will require all working Americans to carry biometric ID cards containing fingerprint records and other personal information. Sen. Schumer calls the measure "the nub of solving the immigration dilemma." But Chris Calabrese, an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer, warns the cards would be a "massive invasion" of privacy. Are national ID cards the solution to our immigration woes or an unacceptable intrusion into our lives? (Watch Ron Paul chime in on the national ID card debate)

Enough, you socialists.
Screw all of you nasty Democrats.
Makes one wonder about the coincidence of said terrorist attacks and just how complicit our government was in them...IMO
Means to an end?
I don’t buy into Truther conspiracy theories.
Bush, like all those in power, simply didn’t want to let a good crisis go to waste once it presented itself.
After all, it takes time to put together legislation to control the people
I’m not into the truther thing either, and I’m not saying Bush was behind anything, but looking at the coincidences of how information didn’t get noticed or departments weren’t talking to departments, etc, and it’s my opinion, the government was somewhat complicit. Especially considering the Progressive government in power.
Who’s to say the crisis wasn’t forthcoming... and known about, but wasn’t stopped before it happened?
Instead of stopping criminals at the border, we will have an open border and treat everyone like a criminal.
It’s not all Bush’s fault.
It’s the fault of the Big Government Progressives, of which Bush played his small part.
Are you saying that Bush didn’t push for the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (a Democrat sponsored bill) and then sign it with much fanfare when it reached his desk?
Are you trying to say that Bush was there, fighting on the side of American Liberty as hard as he fought for Iraqi Freedom?
Get real. While he was busy liberating people abroad, he was doing his part to tighten the government’s grip at home.
By the way, the illegal aliens will still do underground jobs that do not require ID. When you pick them up at the Home Depot parking lot, you will not have to scan them.
I may be an American, but I’m exempt. I don’t work no more. I’m a slacker.
And I know slugs smarter than Schumer and Graham.
I’m saying Bush is no longer our concern. Our concern should be focused on Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the liberals in Congress.
Ummm...no. Not gonna do it. What to do? Pay for everything now and hope it keeps?
I certainly would have said “0bama keeps telling us that the terrorists attacked us because they hate our freedoms” if that was the case.
But it’s not. 0bama won’t even call them “terrorists.”
He calls them “my base.”
But the point is, 0bama is accellerating the assault on individual liberty in America.
He’s using the same rationale and the same same vehicle as Bush, even if he uses different rhetoric.
0bama’s “Change” was not a change in direction, just a change in velocity.
You’re probably right. The light at the end of the tunnel that I see is oblablah is bleeding indie voters. Those are the voters that put him over the top in 2008. Indie voters are typically fiscal hawks and dislike social unrest. I’m betting he continues to lose them and we’ll have a chance in 2012 to replace him with someone sane.

Want on or off this ping list?
Just FReepmail me.
I like beck’s name for him... Nancy Graham....
This is f**king insanity!
Instead of cracking down on illegals, they’re going to crack down on us!?
