Some Parts Of Immigration Reform Really Ain’t Rocket Science

Ah, the immigration debate ramps up again.

It shouldn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out, that by definition, enforcement requires a way to distinguish between the legals and illegals.

Common sense should tell you that the only way to do that on a day-to-day basis is with a National Identity Card authenticated by some form of biometric technology.

Unfortunately we have politicians who don’t agree.

The [reform] blueprint, written primarily by Mr. Schumer, includes a proposal for a Social Security card containing a biometric chip that all workers, including American citizens, would have to present to an employer when being hired.

Conservatives, while supporting stronger enforcement, have long opposed national identity cards, or making the Social Security card a de facto one.


When they are not blocking legislation, they can listen to Fairy Tales to pass the time. It’s a nice world they live in,  where anyone can just look around and pick out the illegal immigrants.

  1. Usually a friend of the Dems, the ACLU is not a fan of these biometric cards.
    “Creating a biometric national ID will not only be astronomically expensive, it will usher government into the very center of our lives,” ACLU legislative counsel Christopher Calabrese said.

  2. Sal,

    It’s true that installing such a system will be hideously expensive and complex. Whether the government could pull it off is also up for debate. But they will probably outsource it to the private sector who will make a bundle. Pick your stocks now and buy before the contracts are awarded.

    And yes the government will be even more at the center of our lives. (It could have been worse, he might have spelled it centre in which case we’d know for sure he’s a socialist).

    But the bottom line is that to enforce any reform we have no choice if we are to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

    If you have another approach, I’m all ears,
