Democratic Immigration Bill Includes Biometric National ID Card

Posted by | April 30, 2010 11:54 | Filed under: Top Stories

The immigration bill being proposed by Democrats includes a provision for what is being a called a “biometric Social Security card.” Democrats claim it is not the same thing as a national ID card and can be used only for employment purposes.  The cards will be used to crack down on employers and be fraud-resistant.

“These cards will be fraud-resistant, tamper-resistant, wear resistant, and machine-readable social security cards containing a photograph and an electronically coded micro-processing chip which possesses a unique biometric identifier for the authorized card-bearer,” reads the bill summary.

The bill would also increase border security and create a pathway to citizenship for law-abiding persons in the country without documentation.

Illegal immigrants who wish to remain in this country would have to admit they had broken the law, pay back taxes and fees, and pass a criminal background check to qualify for legal residency after eight years.
