Tell U.S. Representatives: No Biometric Database, No National ID!

The recently-passed Gang of Eight "immigration reform" bill contains language that – if approved by the House – would greatly damage every American's Constitutional right to privacy.

The recently-passed Gang of Eight “immigration reform” bill contains language that – if approved by the House – would greatly damage every American's Constitutional right to privacy. 

Page 521 of the Corker-Hoeven Amendment – the final version of S. 744 – details the establishment of a "photo tool": a giant federal database managed by the Department of Homeland Security, supplied with individuals' biometric information from all of the fifty states. 

If established, the database would house a file for every individual who carries a driver's license or equivalent state-issued photo I.D.; the file would contain the person's name, age, Social Security number, along with their photograph

Senator Rand Paul believes that the database created by the Immigration Scheme will lead to a National I.D. card. 

The Kentucky Senator says, "I worry that the Senate is working to consider a series of little-noticed provisions in comprehensive immigration reform that may provide a pathway to a national ID card for all individuals present in the United States - citizens and non-citizens. These draconian ideas would simply give government too much power." 

The Senate already rubber-stamped the national database scheme, but the House has not. While there is still time, we need to rally every U.S. Representative to oppose the Senate’s “photo tool” and oppose the creation a federal biometric database.

If the U.S. Congress agrees on this, our freedom of privacy - our Constitutional "right to be left alone" - will suffer irreparable damage. 

Take Action! Sign the petition and tell your U.S. Representative to OPPOSE all attempts to establish a biometric database and national ID through immigration reform legislation! No 'immigration fix' should cost Americans their freedom!

Isn't it ironic that citizens of the US should have a national id however, anyone is suppose to be able to vote as many times as they want without producing an id. Something wrong with this thinking? Illegals can have multiple fake passports under Amnesty law and that is okay, would bet that isn't the case for a citizen. An illegal can just state that he won't be affiliated any longer with a gang and that is good enough for green card. The wavier's in the bill mean that Obama or DHS can give them citizenship at any time. The border doesn't have to be secured, just DHS declare it is secured which Obama and Napalitano have already done - it's not but that isn't the point is it - and 20,000 border agents to catch and release doesn't do much either. Read the Constitution and then honor your oath of office.

Leave "We the People" the hell alone. Every time the government expands, our liberties contract. Time to return to our Founding Principles before We the People take to the streets and toss you hoodlums out by the scruffs of your necks. Enough is enough.
