Bloggings On Immigration Law And Policy

SCHUMER SUGGESTING NATIONAL WORKER ID CARD

From the LA Times:

A “forgery-proof” worker ID card, secured with biometric data such as fingerprints, is a favored idea of the new chairman of the Senate immigration subcommittee, Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Schumer, who will lead the effort to craft the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform legislation, has publicly espoused the card as the best way to ensure that all workers are authorized.

“The ID will make it easy for employers to avoid undocumented workers, which will allow for tough sanctions against employers who break the law, which will lead to no jobs being available for illegal immigrants, which will stop illegal immigration,” Schumer wrote in his 2007 book, “Positively American.”

“Once Americans are convinced that we will permanently staunch the flow of illegal immigration, they will be more willing to accept constructing a path toward earned citizenship for those who are already here.”
