Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill have settled on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would eventually be required to obtain.
Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill are proposing a new national biometric ID card that would be required of all U.S. workers. WSJ's Laura Meckler explains the proposal and the objections from privacy advocates.
Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.
The ID card plan is one of several steps advocates of an immigration overhaul are taking to address concerns that have defeated similar bills in the past.
The uphill effort to pass a bill is being led by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), who plan to meet with President Barack Obama as soon as this week to update him on their work. An administration official said the White House had no position on the biometric card.
yes it is, if your in the US short the United States, you get used to it and forget others do not know what your talking about, so here is the long version of what all this "UT, ID, SS, DL, Gov," means UT short for the state of Utah ID , short for Identification card SS that is Social Security a number your give at birth or when you become a US citizen DL that is a Driver License a card that is giving to you to operate a motor vehicle for privet use Gov short for Government i hope that does help take the confusion out of all this be that full this thread is not about getting a Business license your head would implode.

I am guessing this is a thread about your local state wanting to introduce some kind of Identification care scheme but other than that I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
