Immigration. Congress Quietly Pushing into this Bill to Require National Biometric ID for ‘ALL Americans’. Foundation being laid in this bill
Rep. Bob Goodlatte [R-VA-6] introduced H.R.4760 – Securing America’s Future Act of 2018, a sweeping bill that entails everything from Education and the Workforce to
Homeland Security to the military. Also, tucked away in this 400-page behemoth of a bill are the details of a new biometric National ID card that could soon be required for everyone.
Not surprisingly, there is almost no media coverage on this legislation.
H.R. 4760 establishes a mandatory National Identification system that requires all Americans to carry a government-approved ID containing “biometric features.” Without this card, according to the legislation, you will not be able to work in this country.
The legislation was drafted under the auspices of providing a legislative solution for the current beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
However, as Ron Paul points out, “this bill would give DACA recipients a 3-year renewable legal status while forcing a biometric National ID card on virtually everyone else.”
“Under the statists’ National ID scheme, you’d be forced to carry around your National ID card, tied to this massive database, chockfull of biometric identifiers like fingerprints and retina scans,” Paul noted.
“Without this ID, you won’t be able to legally hold a job — or likely even open a bank account or even board a plane!”
Paul said there is a very good chance this bill will become law as the support for it seems overwhelming.
Of course support is overwhelming. You didn't think we were actually going to get the wall without a few.. shall we say.. conditions, did you ? And I'm sure they'll employ only the finest of diversity hires to scan your retinas at the DMV.
OK real talk, looking through this bill (https://www.congress.gov/115/bills/hr4760/BILLS-115hr4760ih.pdf) it appears to me that it mostly targets people entering and exiting the US. I could have missed something as I admittedly don't know the all the (((legalese))). But it does make it clear that everyone is subject to it regardless of citizenship. I think Ron is thinking long term slippery slope, which is of course exactly where this shit will end up. They need to know everything.
