Should we have an online data base here in the US solely devoted to identifying illegal aliens and their employers? I'm not talking about some government telephone hotline, I'm talking about a database website on the world wide web that everyone can use to log on to and report or identify an illegal alien. Perhaps the sexual predator websites could be used as a model.

Or does one already exist?

How would you establish nationality? How would you positively "ID" anyone?

Well, to start the Freedom of Information Act could be used to get the names of known illegals, like those up in New Haven that are appling for the ID cards.

Well, youre going to have a problem identifying an illegal in the first place. You can hardly walk up to one and ask their immigration status. They may not use their real name etc.

Besides that, whats the point in having a list so that the Gov can ooh and aah at and not do a thing? If they wont put money into making borders secure / paying border control proper money for a dangerous job and giving them supplies the Gov is hardly gonna fork out cash for this,

Default Blockbuster of a GOOD IDEA

I know this won't be popular, but it's an idea. What if we required ALL US CITIZENS to submit to being tatooed on the wrist (right or left, I don't care)--and then have a small computer chip painlessly implanted in each person's left ear lobe, and his/her fingerprints installed in a nationwide data base, which could be cross-referenced with his/her "iris" (eye pattern). This data would allow each of us to be "tracked" 24 hours per day by means of GPS technology. That way, anyone NOT SHOWING UP on the data base, could be ASSUMED to be illegal, and treated as such, without violating HIS (the illegal's) civil rights! After all, they could hardly complain that we WEREN'T keeping track of them, could they?
Is this a good idea? Does anyone see a problem with this? Any objections?..as my first grade teacher used to say, "If you don't have ANYTHING to HIDE, you shouldn't mind being checked up on"...

So much BS of course. Why in the hell should we give up our privacy because so many coward Americans want illegals in this country and aren't willing to do a thing about protecting their own country. Of course then we also have agitators from other countries.

Well, at least I'm TRYING to come up with a solution---I guess this means you wouldn't like my other idea---I thought if ALL OF US got together (I know this is going to sound wierd, but allow me to finish..) and we PAINTED GRAFFITI all over our homes, our neighborhoods, and our freeway bridges, maybe...just MAYBE, the gang-bangers would get SO TIRED of SEEING it, that they'd stop their OWN graffiti attacks.....Don't knock MY ideas, please, until you can at least come up with a better one....

They would just paint over the graffiti with their gang crap. I do understand where you're coming from though....

No way would I allow someone to shove a tracking device in my body, Heck no way -

Honestly, I don't know of a solution because our own Gov't isn't doing anything to help the situation.
