Democrats pushed forward on an immigration overhaul on Thursday evening with no Republican support, as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) continues to hold out, arguing that the divisive issue will make progress on climate change legislation impossible.
The Senate is also in the middle of debating Wall Street reform, which is expected to take up the next few weeks of floor time. Reid, however, said that the chamber would be able to handle the task. “We can do more than one thing at once,” he said.
The Democratic proposal includes increased money for border patroland drug war agents, equipment, helicopters and unmanned drones. It would create a national ID — which is dubbed a “biometric social security card.” Though Democrats insist that it is not an ID card and can only be used for employment purposes.
Yeah, just like the current Socialist Security card isn’t used as an identifier now *rolls eyes*
You are a worker slave that needs to be cataloged by the State for appropriate taxation and handout rationing. It is unacceptable that the State does not have a national database of information on all its subjects tied to a biometric identifier. This situation must be remedied immediatley.
One can not have a proper totalitarian regime with undocumented people roaming around the streets. How are Stazi checkpoints demanding identification supposed be setup if everyone is not properly accounted for?
