    Immigration and IDs: A Modest Proposal

    Why All Americans Should Carry ID Papers - Christopher Dickey - Newsweek.com

    Last week, I read this with great interest. It is an interesting take on things.

    Why support this guy's idea as opposed to the ideas of others? He doesn't fall in to racist or xenophobic traps.

    but I think it fails to address what would happen at traffic stop. unless of course a national ID was needed to get a state driver's license. the states get to make those rules. then there is the situation of unlicensed drivers on the roads.

    'At a minimum all Americans should be required to have one of the wallet-sized passport cards issued by the feds. They cost $20 if you've had a regular passport before, $45 if you haven't. Foreign citizens with United States Permanent Resident Cards, which have recently been redesigned and made more secure would only need to show those.'

    Do you people not know that our driver's license serves as a 'passport'???? Why do you think that they are not issued easily??? It is OUR form of ID. You HAVE to carry some form of ID on you - if you don't drive, then you still get some form of ID issued by the Motor Vehicle Dept. Students carry school ID cards with their picture on them. It is a necessity and not a luxury!!!

    :) The vast majority of Americans will never need a passport becuase they will never leave the borders of their own country.

    It is not law, you idiot. That is what we were talking about. You do NOT have to carry ID with you.

    If you actually read the article or even the OP you'd see the arguments...

    In the context of an argument about carrying ID, 'necessity' sounds an awful like 'it's the law'

    your hysterical response is typical of people who think typing on a computer is equivalent to writing a term paper. we were discussing ID laws and in a discussion the rules are different than Thesis writing. :eek:

    Should?

    It is your desire for a Nanny State where people should carry ID that creeps me out.

    If a person pays cash and does not live on credit (like the big bad government does) there is no need to carry an ID in ones every day life.

    And it's dumbnuts like you who when involved in a life or death situation and when NO ID is found in your miserable body, dead or alive, you make the work of many a nightmare. You creep me out. You might want to use your dictionary more often to look up the meaning of words. Necessity vs law = like night and day. :eusa_hand:

    Everyone in my family has a identification and to get one a birth certificate is needed. My 21 year old downs syndrome grand daughter has one. I don't drive and I have one.
    Even Spot has one. If he is picked up, I have to prove he belongs.

    Why should illegal aliens not to have an identification? What so special about them?
