That's going to cost a shit load to implement and maintain. I don't imagine people are going to be very happy waiting in line to get fingerprinted, iris scanned or whatever else they plan on doing before letting them go back to work.
A new push for a National ID has commenced. It won’t be a Real ID drivers license, however. This time it will be a biometric Social Security card required for anyone who is employed. It will be the new biometric card that will ‘authorize’ your ability to work and support your family. Without it, you will not be eligible for employment. This is the dream of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) and Charles Schumer (D – New York). It is also backed by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The new biometric ID Card, your Social Security Card, is hidden within the immigration reform bill now before Congress.
Watch this video from the CFR to see them supporting, as Edward Alden Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations says: “….., while far more needs to be done, more effective measures are being put in place to ensure only those authorized to work in the United States…”
Think about that phrase “those authorized to work”. It sounds like newspeak for the privilege granted you by the Government to authorize you to find gainful employment.
Now watch the following video on Politico.com, where John McCain and Charles Schumer appeared together to talk about the Immigration Bill they are sponsoring with other Senators, in which the Biometric Social Security Card is a part. At approximately 37 minutes they speak of the new Biometric Social Security Card. http://www.politico.com/events/playbook-breakfast-with-sen-john-mccain-and-sen-chuck-schumer/index.html
“I’m for it,” McCain told a Politico Playbook breakfast earlier this week when asked if he supports “a super Social Security card that would have some sort of biometric thing like a fingerprint.”
“We want to make sure that employers do not hire people who are here illegally,” said Schumer, who has pushed for biometric employment cards in the past. “The only way to do that is to have a non-forgeable card. Because right now you can go down the street here and get a Social Security card or a driver’s license for $100 that’s forged.”
Keeping in mind that Sen. McCain and Sen. Schumer both backed the NDAA bill that allows incarceration of American citizens without Due Process, and the right for the President to authorize the assassination of anyone he determines to be an enemy combatant, without having to justify his actions in any way, why would we want the National ID card they are promoting? Why would we want a National ID Card? Are we Soviet Russia? Sen. Schumer is also a strong backer of gun control, while Sen. McCain has recently indicated he would favor closing the so-called ‘gun show loophole’, which allows for private sales of guns without registration or background checks.
