It’s A Trap! Ron Paul Warns Of McCain Immigration Plan Surveillance Implications

For those who are still quite fond of their 4th Amendment rights, Ron Paul raised the alarm over on his official Facebook page earlier today that the Senate’s current immigration reform package is a civil liberties nightmare.

The former Congressman and presidential candidate warned that the proposed McCain/Schumer immigration “reform” plan, as it exists now, would usher in warrantless surveillance of US citizens using drones, a de facto mandatory national ID system barring those without it from working legally, increased federal database information on US citizens, and the further erosion of our core civil rights under the guise of keeping our economy “safe” from a mostly non-existent wave of illegal immigration.

Scariest paragraph of Ron Paul’s post: “Harper rightly notes that E-Verify is in fact a national ID card, writing last week that, ‘the system must biometrically identify everyone who works—you, me, and every working American you know. There is no way to do internal enforcement of immigration law without a biometric national identity system.'”

Minority Report could be closer than we think. Open those eyes nice and wide for your iris scan, citizen!

        but conditioning & fear keep most from this knowledge & experience

    Funny how paper receipts for votes in 2000 pres election was too complicated, but scanning your eyes to instantly verify your identity anywhere in the country is possible now. how is this any different from social security cards. do you think employers hiring illegal immigrants now are going to rye scan them in the future?
