(NaturalNews) Control - this is what fuels many Congressmen and women. Recently, two U.S. senators met with President Obama, vouching for a biometric national ID card that would force workers to submit to a fingerprint, hand, or iris scan. Any worker failing to comply with this biometric tracking mandate, would be terminated from their job.
The program would be titled the "Believe System," an acronym for Biometric Enrollment, Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment.
The ID card would contain a digital encryption key that would be required to match work authorization databases. The micro-processing chip on the card would store the biometric identifier. The worker would be required to carry this card and the employer would be forced to scan it.
Who's behind this controlling proposal?
The two sponsors of the legislation, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) say the new identification cards will "ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs, dramatically decreasing illegal immigration."
Their proposal would include additional border security, more temporary workers, and a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the United States.
After meeting privately with President Obama, the senators plan was "promising," according to Obama, and the president "welcomed" their new ID card law.
This biometric tracking system would force employers to refuse someone work who didn't match up in the database, bringing up the question:
"What if freedom loving American don't want their hands or eyes scanned?" In a free country, no one should be required to submit their body to such control. Many American's already observe this control on a daily basis when they fly commercially. Whether they are being scanned by a radiation device or whether they are being patted up and down by TSA thugs, American's should stand for their right to their own body.
Scanning your veins
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Schumer said: "This reform is the nub of solving the immigration dilemma politically speaking...If you say they can't get a job when they come here, you'll stop them." The report also said the most likely type of biometric data to be recorded would be a scan of the veins in the top of the hand.
Previous national ID schemes have failed
Previous attempts of human cataloging have failed. In 2004, Rep. David Drier's federal ID card plan failed, which included a photographed social security card with an encrypted electronic strip. In 2007, President Bush's similar proposal failed, and not too long after, the Real ID Act failed as well. This law forced states to standardize driver's licenses. Now, as tyrants attempt to catalog the populace, people can only hope that the tireless minority of freedom-loving Americans will rise up and stop these crazy biometric scanning plans.
It's about control
This ID law would control employers as well, requiring them to have a government scanning device, or an "ID scanner" to verify the ID cards. This could lead to "ID scans" for anything, including routine purchases as well.
It's obvious that laws such as these are not about immigration, just like the Affordable Care Act is not about health care.
Issues like these are almost always about control. The real fight is not right vs. left, democrat vs. republican. The real fight lies in the freedom of from government controlling and monitoring Americans' every move.
