The real cost of immigration “reform” — our freedoms

Legal Insurrection - Rather than enforcing our current laws, and for purposes of political expediency, we are moving toward another vast expansion of federal government monitoring and information collection.

Look at what we are going to have to do in order to not hold people who came here illegally accountable for their unlawful actions (from the Framework announced today).  Some of these things are not new, just “improved” variations of monitoring the population, including more rigorous checks not only of who enters, but who exits, and also who is working where.  At least no one is yet proposing exit visas in addition to entry visas.

Remember, in order to collect information on illegals, the government needs also to collect information on legals.  This all may be “necessary,” but at least recognize what illegal immigration and its “reform” is costing us in terms of our personal privacy.
