Thanks, liberals & libertarians: 71% support "foreigners-only" ID card

More irony: those "liberals" and "libertarians" who support illegal immigration in the belief that it will lead to more freedom are making things worse, creating a problem that the majority of Americans realize need to be fixed. That leaves an opening for someone with a "fix", such as Rudy Giuliani with his "foreigners-only" ID card. That would eventually become a national ID card, resulting in much less freedom, the opposite of what those "liberals" and "libertarians" want (or pretend to want).

And, it's a popular idea. From the latest Rasmussen poll:

By a 71% to 16% margin, voters also favor a proposal that would require all foreign visitors to carry a universal identification card as proposed by another GOP Presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani. Seventy-four percent (74%) also favor the creation and funding of a central database to track all foreign visitors in the United States.

The latter is also a Giuliani idea.

In other results, the border fence is supported 56 to 31 (Republicans: 75% for), with cutting off federal funding to sanctuary cities being supported 58 to 29 (Republicans: 73% for).

UPDATE: Right on cue:

"The question is: in what circumstances will people be asked for their IDs?" said Jay Stanley, a privacy expert at the American Civil Liberties Union. "Will dark-skinned foreigners be asked for their IDs while a Caucasian person isn't?"

Well, OK, if you insist. Then I guess to avoid that we're all going to have to get one of the cards. You've still got freedom, however. You'll get to choose whether to ID yourself using a retinal scan or a cheek swab.


Look guys this little mexico city guy Rudy Giuliani is a Pig! his ideals are one with Mexico City he is our enemy! but if the power people want him he will be your next evil doer and with the new laws on the books you will be Quiet and as the guy not go gentle into that good night old age should burn and rave at the close of day; rage, rage against the dying of light. sad to say the great nation is about to disappear into this evil of the third world. "by the way God is not coming to help you or the bill of rights", it like your life will also disappear into this hell. and in this end game of evil doers you are that game!

In other words be happy have fun its over with the new world order will be running you soon. John move the 2u over to 78. wait until the FBI Looks at that.(;-( )

Why didn't Rudy give them all a card when he was running his sanctuary city by the name of New York. A political opportunists by any other name is still a phony.

This libertarian doesn't support anything that says ID. I'm probably "wasting" a vote on Ron Paul.

Well let' see.. 1. Opening bank accounts 2. Upon employment 3. Applying for a drivers license 4. Applying for welfare benefits 5. Enrolling in educational institutions 6. Upon employment etc., etc. As if many Americans give a hoot about what the ACLU says.

This Nation now called reconquista-land once called the USA Is really nut's. watch your butt's in the coming years.

mjb: Paul's a Libertarian. Your Party supports eradication of national borders (thus, "open borders" policy), elimination of legal restrictions as to "drugs" (of various kinds), and many other things. But as to illegal immigration, the Paul opposition "to it" is mostly smoke and mirrors, just as Giuliani's is.
