American’s privacy has been seriously threatened and Congress has been keeping it quiet. In an attempt to make it more difficult for illegal immigrants to obtain a job in the U.S., Congress has been working to pass E-Verify, “an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.” This would force every employee to carry a federal government issued biometric ID in order to legally work.
But this has little to do with illegal immigrants getting jobs, and everything to do with the federal government unconstitutionally collecting every bit of data they can on you.
What the scheme will do, though, it will force all law-abiding Americans to carry an unconstitutional national ID with all their information on it, including sensitive biometric data, just to be allowed to work. It will also give the feds a key new tool to monitor and control people.
Imagine what a government could do with data on your location, your fingerprints, your health habits, your employment history, your phone records, what media you consume, your religious beliefs, and virtually every aspect of your life. Now imagine what this all-powerful entity would do if it disagrees with how you choose to live your life.
Freedom and privacy are at stake with the E-Verify biometric national ID cards!
We must oppose Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.)’s bill H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act of 2018. The bill already has 70 cosponsors in less than two weeks after being introduced. The bill would make the national biometric ID card mandatory for all Americans and on top of that it would allow Democrats to use Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to give millions of illegal immigrations amnesty. Under unconstitutional executive actions signed by President Obama, DACA has allowed thousands of young illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. with their parents. The program was set to expire March 2018 but President Trump has extended it to six more months in order for Congress to figure out a solution.
If we allow this monitoring of Americans through national ID cards, basic freedoms such as opening a bank account, boarding a plane, getting a job, will be up to the discretion of the federal government. The continued security for our freedoms and rights under our Constitutional Republic depends on it!
