You're Part of the Immigration Bill's Database!!

Marco Rubio, call  your office.

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system. 

Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation (.pdf) is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.  --AOSHQ quoting Wired

The AOS comment is worth repeating:

It's not like it's a tattoo or anything.

Nothing to see here.  Move along.  Or we'll have the IRS audit your ass.

I hate to break it to you, but if you have a social security number you're already part of a national database.

It's ok if a Dem put it in place.

Hate to break it to you, but you're demonstrating the head-in-ass syndrome of the (D) sheeple.
