I wasn't aware that Americans entering the USA was increasing illegal immigration and increasing the risk of terrorism there.

Hence why patriot act and PAII fail, these added security measures are being used against the people not to protect the people. Why the hell does it matter when an AMERICAN goes back to america? What bout the millions of illegals? I can just see it now mom of 3 being stripped search and harassed at the airport while an insurgent walks right on by with a suitcase of suspectable material.

They should be "worried" about the Illegal alien invaders, not Americans.

According to Napitalino (or however she spells it), illegal alien invaders are not the problem, it is the people opposed to them who need to be closely watched and possibly shipped off to Gitmo and waterboarded.

Well I've read other information
on this plan. It's really a method
to keep track of U.S. citizens and
our movements. Too bad they've not
perfected a way to stop illegal alien
border jumpers coming and not going!
Every time you use your passport it
goes into that great big data base
called the government.

Actually your not going to have any oversight on anyone with out stepping on American's toes.

I for one realize that if this puts some dent in those who are crawling thru like cockroaches, then it may have to be the way to go. But I agree if your going to step on my liberties and my privacies, then someone better get a handle on open border policies..12,000 cubans slithering thru Mexico every year has got to stop.

No, but you people who complain about it will be put on lists and monitored as potential terrorists... right up until your first amendment is amended to make it a hate crime to complain about illegal aliens and you get carted off to Gitmo.

How much do you want to be that now suddenly your US state ID card and or drivers license is not "government approved" to cross a US border?

Don't like the idea of an electronically based Federal ID card?

This will force millions to acclimate to one, then it will become standard.

Only millions of Americans. Tourists and illegal aliens will not be affected.

If you ever cross the border you'll understand it's all about power. Border agents are hired based on asshole quotient, They can do anything they want. Seize your computer give you a tag and tell you to expect it back in a year, maybe. There is nothing you can do, no one you can complain too.

I watched them scream "Shut them g.d. kids up." Because some Japanese toddlers, free after 15 hours in an airplane, were running around being toddlers. I almost f'ing cried "welcome back to America."

No, but federal WINDOW DRESSING is much more important than real security.

lol I think those who believe they can take the law into their own hands physically by breaking the law in order to achieve their objectives are a problem.

I was thinking the same thing, great government officials we have here ...
Then again when I look at the federal reserve and the mismanagement clueless individuals who run it I'm not hardly surprised.

Obama has finally taken a stand of his won- to protect us from those nasty dangerous Canadians!

Obama goes to Saudi and tries to kiss the Saudi King's maleness and then insults Canada.

That's perfect.

You have to insult Canadians, it's like required or something. And it was Bush who kissed the Saudi and walked around holding hands as they toured the palace (the one and only time I felt sorry for bush) Obama did a slight English style bow

Then perhaps it is time for the right, the left, the moderates to unite and force border security, REAL border security to be implemented. What would a non-partisan million man watch clogging the streets of DC do to further that demand?

I agree, however, the W.H. would order the march "blacked out" by all news media. They're good at doing that.......remember last summer's Revolution March in D.C.? Probably not, it was ordered blacked out. The only way we saw what happened was by going to youtube.
