Welcome to Amerika

The husband of one of my mother's employees was driving in Houston in his work truck the other day. He is Latino by ancestry, but was born and raised in the United States. The Immigration Department pulled him over and demanded to see his I.D. and social security card. When he produced it, they proceeded to hassle him over it and tell him it was faked.

Welcome to Germany, 1938.

If he'd had THIS, it wouldn't be a big deal at all...

Indeed. Keep voting for Republicans, and hopefully we can have all our immigrants tagged by 2010!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if he was born and raised in the United States, why would he need an Immigrant Tagging Chip. He's not an immigrant, so I think you missed the entire point.

I think the Immigrant Tagging Program applies to any non-caucasian. Or at least it should, by Gawd!
