Requiring a biometric fed ID to get any job: Good
And not just any ID but a brand spanking new Fed level ID, because we
can't trust the States anymore.
And let's not even get into the argument about producing ID in order to vote.
Oh and your bank account? The feds get into that too.
Oh and look, comlpaints about part of the Az bill being unclear get results.
Not that it matters.
Nearly everyone in the immigration debate has claimed to favor enforcing the immigration laws. But if you think it is draconian to require that anyone have to show papers proving their legal status, then you're simply against enforcement. And if you really believe that, you're not going to change your mind just because the government has set up a "temporary worker" program or a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants: You're going to be against truly enforcing any conceivable set of immigration laws. Good to know.
And here's Bob Owen's take
The pro-criminal immigrant lobby is crying that Arizona's self-defense immigration law is the equivalent of Nazi Germany and other totalitarian states requiring people to carry onerous documentation everywhere they go, drudging up the ominous imagery of MP40-toting German soldiers demanding, "show us your papers."
The Democratic response?
Something even more intrusive.
..."Creating a biometric national ID will not only be astronomically expensive, it will usher government into the very center of our lives. Every worker in America will need a government permission slip in order to work. And all of this will come with a new federal bureaucracy — one that combines the worst elements of the DMV and the TSA," said Christopher Calabrese, ACLU legislative counsel.
It sounds crazy, right? Not hardly. You just need to understand their
The government-loving nanny-state left wing would want more control over the
lives of our nation's legal citizens... even as the proposed law would do absolutely nothing to stop criminal immigrants that work in the underground economy, off the books, as millions of criminal aliens already do.
The simple fact of the matter is that importing as many criminal aliens as possible and converting them into voters is the long-term survival strategy of the Democratic Party, and they will never champion laws that protect the integrity of our nation's borders or strengthen our national defense if those run counter to the needs of the Party."
Owens may be a bit of a knee-jerk on Open Carry, but on this and most everything else he's spot on.
