Unbelievable! I am sure everyone else had to provide their SS#.

Get used to illegals being pandered to; it seems like they're the only constituency that matters anymore.

True, but it isn't so much about pandering to illegals as it is about pandering to their ethnocentric voting bloc.

“For guests who do not posses a valid Congressional ID, please provide their full name, Social Security number, and date and place of birth,” the Sergeant at Arms office wrote in a memo to congressional offices.
please provide this information does not say all items are required to do a background check or even if a background check is done in all circumstances.

What is the federal law that bans anyone to enter the US Capitol without a SSN?

For this particular event I am sure you need to have government clearance such as a background check if you are not already cleared.

In the State of the Union the President traditionally outlines the administration's accomplishments over the previous year, as well as the agenda for the coming year, in upbeat and optimistic terms. Since the 1982 address [which would be the Reagan presidency], it has also become common for the President to honor special guests sitting in the gallery, such as everyday Americans or visiting heads of state.


Clearly "visiting heads of state" may not have an assigned Social Security number, so the declaration that it is a "requirement" (for those that do no have a "Congressional ID") is moot. The noted objection in the citation is for what? Worry that those without a Social Security number can attend to hear the event, or that President Obama or other politicians would be under a threat from such guests?

What proof do you have to show that it was not needed for this State of the Union? Were background checks conducted?

What I find interesting is the Daily Caller states they've obtained a copy of the memo, however, they didn't publish it. It appears they're just cherry-picking it to maximize outrage. Furthermore there's no information on when it was issued or if there were any modifications later released.

But please, continue your normal self-induced spams of RAGE while the rest of us look on bemused.
