Nat’l ID card + microchip required by Immigration Bill

with 6 comments

The NYT reported yesterday (3/18/10) that senators Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, and Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina have introduced:

“..a proposal to overhaul the immigration system, which would require illegal immigrants to admit they broke the law before they could gain legal status and require all workers in the United States to carry a biometric identity card to prove that they are eligible to work…..

The plan calls for a big increase in immigration agents patrolling workplaces, and would require all workers, including legal immigrants and American citizens, to present a tamper-proof Social Security card when they apply for jobs. Biometric identity information would be stored on the card and not in any government database, according to an explanatory document from the senators.”

Information about biometric ID cards is easier to find at British websites, since they are far advanced in civilian surveillance and control.  The Biometric Identity Cards site opines:

What biometric information will be stored on the card?

The government has not yet been able to decide exactly what information will be stored.  There are many issues to consider.  Whatever measurement is chosen must be something that doesn’t generally change, and that can be easily provided by most people, including disabled or elderly people.  The most likely candidates are finger prints and images of the iris of the eye which, like fingerprints, [and DNA] are believed to be unique to each person.

How will the information used once it is on the card?

The government has not had much to say about how the information will be used.  Their silence is understandable because they know that the truth will be quite unpalatable to any sensible person who has more than a modicum of understanding of history.  Two simple facts need to be understood:

First, merely issuing identification cards doesn’t achieve anything … identification cards only have any purpose if they are checked and used to control access to places and services.

Second, the information on the card has to be checked against some other list.  Since that list will be stored on a computer it means that every use of the card can be monitored and traced and since that card is inextricably linked to you, that means that your activity can be monitored and you can be traced.

The prospective use, and inevitable misuse and abuse of the information is the reason that this web site exists and we invite you to read all the articles in order to understand fully the dangers of what the government is proposing.  Biometric identification systems are not the benign tool of liberal and socialist governments that the UK government likes to claim.  On the contrary, such systems would make an ideal tool with which to introduce tyranny and oppression.

With the failure of the Real ID Program to overcome costs, it was inevitable that a similar measure would soon be introduced by those who seek to use technology to control and oppress.

  1. I cannot understand how Americans cannot perceive of the horrid, worse than Orwellian, dystopia that is the 21st century U.S. As much as I hate to paraphrase the words of an idiot like Ronald Reagan, I do often wonder how I will explain to my granddaughter what things were like when America was a free country; a country without ubiquitous video surveillance, without face recognition software, without mass data mining of the public’s private communications by the government, without terrorist watch lists, travel restrictions, the need of a passport just to visit Montreal or Juarez, without the TSA, DEA (Gestapo), ATF, CIA, FBI, ICE and an actual Department of “Homeland” Security; a time when the powerful had to at least put up an appearance that they must obey the same laws as the masses and face the same consequences, a time when America was not walled off from its friendly neighbors and its borders were not over flown by predator drones. How will I explain to her what it was like when the entire country was a “free speech zone”? Please don’t blame all this on those “dirty terrorists”. Blame it rather on a generation of Americans (called baby boomers) who are craven, effete, over privileged and filled with so much quivering anxiety that they were willing to give away every liberty we possessed in their desperate and pitiful desire for security.

  2. Blame the Boomers? maybe. Right now I’m blaming everybody! Corruption and selfishness have become normal behavior which sickens and saddens me. We are no longer a free people.

  4. Perhaps singling out boomers is wrong, but when I think of the attitudes that have brought about this state of affairs I immediately think of my older brothers and sisters who either totally eat up this “war on terror” crud or at least never stop to question America’s culpability in bringing about the conditions that cause terrorism against us and certainly they never ever would conceive of the possibility that they have been duped by false flag ops carried out to advance the neocon agenda of world domination and despoilage. Our children are far savier people. However they are even more effete and overprivileged.

  5. My grandmother made her own soap and had chickens in the back yard long after it was no longer necessary. I think many of us sense the massive loss of survival skills during the last 60 years of prosperity. In fact many people in what we arrogantly call the Third World, are much better positioned with skills and cooperative relationships to make it in a future of scarcity and hardship. We were seduced and abandoned by a culture of disposable junk.

  6. MLK once said, in order for the United States to be a free, and civilized society. We need to move away from a things oriented society to a person oriented society. There is so much happiness and love in this life, all that come from human relationship. Yet people fail to grasp this, thinking that more money, more things, will somehow make them happier. This is simply not true, greed is a recipe for a lonely unhappy life.
