The case for a national ID card
Washington Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/3/2013 5:09:13 AM

THE UNITED STATES has invested tens of billions of dollars in the past decade alone to foil illegal immigration — tightening the border, accelerating deportations, deputizing local police — while doing precious little to stop employers from hiring undocumented immigrants. That is fixable — by means of a universal national identity card — and must be fixed as part of any sensible overhaul of the nation’s immigration system. Critics of immigration reform are right that the last big attempt to fix the system, in 1986, was no fix at all. Millions of undocumented immigrants were given amnesty but without

Comments:
We don´t need a universal ID card, we only need ID cards for those who are not legal residents.

I call BS on this one. The author dismisses any criticism as ringing "hollow".
His entire plan depends on the integrity and competence of a government that has proven time and time again that it is incapable of either.
The fakes will be out before the politicians have finished bunching up behind the microphone for the photo op.

Nobody´s ever counterfeited a lotto ticket and claimed the prize,so the technology is there to make an ID card counterfeit proof.

Paying people under the table saves employers tons of money so an ID card wouldn´t fix that unless you had all kinds of workplace raids.Then the left cries about family separation.

National ID cards.
Might as well.
We´ve ceased being citizens long ago.
Disarm us, clothe and feed us, and tattoo bar codes across our foreheads to keep track of us.
Our government owns us.

We already have a pseudo national ID card. We call them driver´s liscenses. But states pass these things out along with all the other free stuff with no more proof than the applicant´s word. So how would a national ID card be any different?

The democrats would pass them out freely just as they have done with the ObamaPhone.

So typical--instead of solving the problem of illegal immigration, the government wants to burden the vast majority who are not illegal. It´s exactly like the response to 9/11--searching little old ladies at the airport instead of finding and stopping Islamic terrorists.

You know where I am on this one, as much as I hate being along similar lines with WaPo. Biometric is necessary, but not sufficient, however. Computer database corroboration is also required to suppress fraud. We already have the technology, as #2 points out. A Constitutional amendment is needed to safeguard against government and other abuse. We already have defacto "national IDs" in place, as #6 and #7 mentioned. These are poorly secured and easily compromised.

As to #1´s points: how can you selectively check "illegal resident" ID without profiling - which the courts will throw out? To avoid that and provide equal protection, it must be an "everyone or no one" proposition. It must be universal. With proper safeguards in place, national ID would have many benefits as well - fraud and ID theft prevention being among them. The whole point of the Constitution and its establishment of a federal government is to safeguard our liberty. As questionable as that government´s integrity and competence may be, it´s what we have. Arming up and hiding in the back country simply won´t get it done in the 21st century. The "other side" has the technology to find you and the advanced weapons to kill you. The only hope is to fix the system.

In the end, the real argument against a national ID is having a need or desire to hide.

Before any sort of amnesty is passed they must create an enhanced e-verify type employee verification system that employers must use to verify that their new employees are authorized to work in the USA. If they don´t do that, in a few years the liberal Democrats and their allies, the many very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups will be calling for another amnesty to cover new illegal alien arrivals before every future election.

The current e-verify system is incompetent to catch illegal alien impostors who are fraudulently using someone else´s social security card as the card only has a name and number type on it with no other identifiers.

I would use the social security card as a basis for conducting enhanced e-verify checks. However, I would re-issue the social security card in modern high-tech form to everybody, US citizens and legal aliens alike under age 55 who are authorized to work in the USA. The new card would contain a digital photograph of the bearer and other biometric identifiers that employers would be required to review to ensure that any cards presented to them by new employees are being presented by the rightful bearer and not an illegal alien impostor. The card would have electronic verification capability so that employers could instantly verify that the card is a valid card and that the bearer is authored to work in the USA.

Such a modern high-tech employee verification system, with secure issuing safeguards and effective enforcement, would keep most illegal aliens out of most US jobs worth them having. Once the word got out to the world that it is very hard for an illegal alien to get a US job, most prospective illegal aliens would think twice before coming here.

The real opposition to a National ID is the desire of law-abiding, legal people to live one´s life free of government interference. There is already too much--the IRS, Social Security, the TSA and coming soon, Obamacare. There is already a good-enough national ID. It is called a social security card. Take the burden off the employers and have Homeland Security match up names and numbers and then go after violators and the number of illegals will go down.

I thought we had determined "never again" after the German Socialists gave us I.D. numbers tattooed on the forearms. Guess not.
And how soon is this foolproof (there is no such thing) system to be augmented by, say, a bar code tattooed in an inconspicuous part of the forehead? Or, perhaps in an effort to be less noticeable, one of those chips like are being implanted in pets, to be implanted in YOUR hand. For easy swiping at the bank, plane signin, entry into the school of your choice, or be sure you´re allowed to buy beer, cigarettes, foods that violate Moochelle´s food diktats etc?
How soon?
I know where this ends. Not going there. Surprised that so many others are.
The balance of power between the citizen and the State is way out of balance already. This makes it worse.

Last month was a bittersweet seventh birthday for Twitter. The Union of Jewish French Students sued the social-media giant for $50 million in a French court in light of anti-Semitic tweets that carried the hashtag #unbonjuif ("a good Jew"). In January, Twitter agreed to delete the tweets, but the student group now wants the identities of the users who sent the anti-Semitic messages so that they can be prosecuted under French law against hate speech. Twitter is resisting. It claims that as an American company protected by the First Amendment, it does not have to aid government efforts to control

It’s an election year, which means the Democrats’ crass politicization of important women’s issues is gearing up once more. Don’t be fooled by President Obama’s new push for pay equity.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
