10. That's the bottom line - employers
Edited on Wed May-16-07 01:01 PM by Robson
All employees should be required to prove eligibility. I believe that each and every American should have a biometrically designed ID card that could be verified through a centralized data base that would be required for major transactions such as jobs, buying a house, opening a bank account, and applying for a driver's license. However law enforcement would never be permitted to stop people at random and request papers please, unless it was an arrest.

I've read that in India it is not uncommon for relatives to commit ID theft by deciding to declare that a relative was dead and then taking his property. I assume they bribe authorities to certify that the individual is dead (when he may be away or the process is unbeknownst to the victim until too late). This individual is unable to ever prove he owned it or is whom he says he is. He is considered as in limbo.

In my view immigration and ID theft is a very good reason to establish some sort of bribe proof ID and identity clearinghouse in the USA.
