Fear is destroying the constitution
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.
Anti-immigrant sentiment is being whipped up to persuade us to trash the constitution.
To say nothing of the billions to be earned by winning the biometric card contract.
There is talk of making Schumer majority leader if Harry Reid losses and Dems still have a majority.
