    ID Card for Workers at Center of Immigration Plan

    The Wall Street Journal

    Under a potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information.

    Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill have settled on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would eventually be required to obtain.

    Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.

    The ID card plan is one of several steps advocates of an immigration overhaul are taking to address concerns that have defeated similar bills in the past.

    The uphill effort to pass a bill is being led by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), who plan to meet with President Barack Obama as soon as this week to update him on their work. An administration official said the White House had no position on the biometric card.

    "It's the nub of solving the immigration dilemma politically speaking," Schumer said in an interview. The card, he said, would directly answer concerns that after legislation is signed, another wave of illegal immigrants would arrive. "If you say they can't get a job when they come here, you'll stop it."

    The biggest objections to the biometric cards may come from privacy advocates, who fear they would become de facto national ID cards that enable the government to track citizens.

    "It is fundamentally a massive invasion of people's privacy," said Chris Calabrese, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union. "We're not only talking about fingerprinting every American, treating ordinary Americans like criminals in order to work. We're also talking about a card that would quickly spread from work to voting to travel to pretty much every aspect of American life that requires identification."

    All this is true, but I bet there are a lot of out of work people that would support anything if they thought it would give them a chance to get a job.
    when people get desperate, they will put up with a lot of things that may not be right.

    The America I grew up in died when the Baby Boomers took over the government. A lost generation running a lost country. It's all down hill from here on out. Enjoy your shooting while you can.

    Sounds like another ploy for instant amnesty to me.

    I would only go along with the Biometric ID Card if the government would do another Operation Wetback first. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Wetback

    If they don't fix the fence the government might as well start handing them out along the border, just another piece of feel good legislation that won't do a damn bit of good.

    Just close the holes in the fence and shoot a few illegals and word will get around.
