Corrupt Politicians Want National ID Card

As if it wasn't bad enough already, Schumer (the schmuck from NY-D) and Graham (the moron from SC-R) want to add in a national ID card to an immigration bill. This is how it starts, people! We have never, ever, been a nation of "let me see your papers" and this just flies in the face of that.

Schumer and Graham are both progressives, regardless of the party you see them in. Instead of fixing the problem (like not having wide open borders so illegal aliens come in), they try to put a bandage on it by throwing more government at the problem.

Do you honestly think that this ID card will stop at workers? There aren't many times I agree with the ACLU, but this is one of them. It is completely un-American and I hope the voters in NY and SC get rid of these two losers.


A person familiar with the legislative planning said the biometric data would likely be either fingerprints or a scan of the veins in the top of the hand. It would be required of all workers, including teenagers, but would be phased in, with current workers needing to obtain the card only when they next changed jobs, the person said.

The card requirement also would be phased in among employers, beginning with industries that typically rely on illegal-immigrant labor.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce doesn't have a position on the proposal, but it is concerned that employers would find it expensive and complicated to properly check the biometrics.

Mr. Schumer said employers would be able to buy a scanner to check the IDs for as much as $800. Small employers, he said, could take their applicants to a government office to like the Department of Motor Vehicles and have their hands scanned there.

See. Now the government is in control of all the jobs in the private economy. That doesn't sound like a free market to me. Don't get me wrong, I don't want American jobs going to illegal aliens, period. Fix the problem, not the symptom.
