10 May STOP National ID Bill!
May 10, 2005
Action Alert! Action Alert! Action Alert!
The Senate is scheduled to vote TODAY on the “REAL ID Act.” You must call both of your Senators immediately and tell them and their staff to VOTE NO on the REAL ID Act. The REAL ID Act does nothing to prevent terrorism or stop illegal immigration. All it does is strap legal, law-abiding Americans with a National ID card system.
Act NOW! There is absolutely no time to lose!
*Action to Take*
1. Call the Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senators by name. Tell them they MUST VOTE NO on the REAL ID Act.
CALL NOW! ONLY PHONE CALLS WILL BE EFFECTIVE AT THIS POINT!
– The REAL ID Act requires the linking of all state driver’s license databases — thereby creating one massive database harnessing the private details of every U.S. citizen.
– The REAL ID Act requires that all state driver’s licenses have a common machine-readable technology, including a digital photo of the card holder. Of course, much more intrusive information will likely be required in the near future.
– The REAL ID Act gives the federal government the unprecedented power to dictate what data states collect for license holders. This could include virtually anything, including fingerprints and/or eye retina scans known as “eye-prints.”
The REAL ID Act is a national ID scheme, plain and simple. It is NOT a border security bill, as some have tried to spin it. In fact, the bill still permits illegal aliens to acquire driver’s licenses!
***PLEASE SEND THIS URGENT ALERT TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE***
