A national ID card in 2010?
Fox News ^ | 3/11/2010 | N/A

Posted on 03/26/2010 6:53:57 PM PDT by GailA

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)

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.

IMO.

OK.
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.

How long before Congess shows greater wonders than Obamacare, by authorizing fire to come down from heaven (pick an enemy/target)?

Missouri opted out of the Real ID a year or two ago as a sovereignty violation. I suspect there will be no national ID card issued to Missiurians.

they sure will be issued in the republic of illinois. you can bet on that.

” He has been able to do in this country to a sizable degree because of them.”

Correct and important to remember. We all (on FR) see things because we look deeper into what is going on. Most just slide along not wanting to disturb things.

To most, it will always be okay, and besides look at what we are getting.....

This is part of the Healthcare issue. During Hillarycare, a national Health ID was to be issued. This is the Health ID.

BTW, the other thing we get with these ID’s is alien amnesty.

I did work for a company in san fran that had the contract to develop the technology for the biometric card in ‘03. The intent was to require states to use it as a drivers license, and the feds in the us passport. I left the company in ‘04 - but the card was supposed to be used n GA and TX in ‘05, and other states as the legislature adopted the DHS standards thereafter. I have no reason to think they didn’t. My florida license has the slight (very slight) bump at the top - I’ve always assumed this rolled out as planned.

That has been the plan all along. Beck may sound alarmist, but he speaks the TRUTH! Which is why the marxist demonize him as much as they do Rush. Truth is some times hard to hear. WAKE UP AMERICA.

OBAMACARE—CASTRO APPROVED! Makes a good bumper sticker.

I wonder if they every considered biometric confirmation before allowing anyone to vote.

I bet if that requirement was part of the proposal we would not have to worry about the rats ever making it a law. They would lose their graveyard vote as well as their illegal vote and likely never win another election.

Yea, but they don’t have your DNA, retinia scans or finger prints. Or all your medical history, if you CCW, arrest record, traffic ticket or your credit score! That is what they want on this card.

We need to convince our anti-illegal friends that they are making a big mistake by giving the statists the knife that will stab us in the back.

Don’t think for a moment that the ID will be used the way the anti-illegals want it to be used.

Once we give the government the power to say who private employers can and cannot hire, and how we must identify ourselves absent any reasonable cause .... that government power will be used to require members of hate groups to be required to be rehabilitated in a re-education camp as part of government mental healthcare.
