    Solve the immigration problem? What a red herring.....ostensibly this legislation would provide employers with the ability to check employees citizenship......but employers ALREADY have a way to check social security numbers...through the E-Verify system....why not just make that mandatory.....instead of requiring every worker in the U.S. to carry a biometric ID card?

    Once these ID cards are in place you can bet they will be used for other purposes....such as health care, financial services, housing, etc., etc......it's the evolution of the policy called "internal enforcement"....i.e.....big time Big Brother....

    I saw this reported on this morning on TV. On FOX it was reported in a negative light, on MSNBC it was reported favorably.
    Talk about bias in the media!
    Anyway, I am of the opinion that will just lead to an underground economy. I won't get a national ID card, and most of the people i know that live in my town would not either.
    I would not employ anyone that had one, and the employer where i work at in the summer will not either.

    This could be a great thing. The underground economy would put more money in the pockets of those that defy the law, no taxes.
    It would starve the government out of existence for the same reason, no taxes.

    There isn't enough jails to hold every person that would defy this policy if it became law.

    A positive means to identify whether someone is a citizen would put an end to illegal immigration. Having a biometric proof of identity (retinal scan, DNA, facial recognition) would prevent fake IDs.

    Once you have a way of positively identifying eligible workers....JAIL any employer who hires illegals

    I don't like illegals in our country but I don't like the idea of a National ID card either. If we get one, it won't be long before we begin to hear the phrase, "Can I see your papers, commrade?"

    National ID card with biometric link

    Ends Illegal immigration, identity theft, stolen credit cards

    If you don't want a positive ID program....quit your bitching

    The majority of people in the U.S. are here legally; the minority are here illegally. So the majority must bend? No. Round up all the illegals and give 'em the boot, build a damn wall, enforce the laws we have now, E-verify, jail those who employ illegals. I'm not holding my breath.

    It only needs to happen ONCE....and the rest will get the message

    Rounding up illegals is like herding cats. Jail the employers and the jobs will disappear overnight....so will the illegals

    Yeah but all those illegal immigrants look alike. How will I know one has not traded places with one I hired?
