So let me get this straight: It's okay for the White House to require that High School Students provide ID information (Social Security #s and citizen status) to the Secret Service on the pretext that this is necessary to protect the President, but it's somehow not copacetic for police officers in AZ to check the green cards of immigrants caught speeding? The White House appears to be laying the groundwork for President Barack Obama to shake the hand of each senior at Kalamazoo Central High Schools commencement ceremony next month. Seniors are being asked to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Such a check is required for anyone who gets within an arms length of the president, students were told at their senior breakfast Friday. Of the fact that the White House is requesting information on all the graduating seniors, K-Central Principal Von Washingon Jr. told the students, Ill let you figure out what that means, said senior Simon Boehme, who was at the breakfast. Everyone is excited that we might have the opportunity to shake the presidents hand, Boehme said.... Obama may personally greet each graduate: Kalamazoo Central seniors to fill out paperwork for Secret Service | - MLive.com Our federal government engages in more controls and security for shaking the President's hand than it does in protecting our borders. Unfrellingbelievable. But it does put their priorities in high relief.
