Should we track immigrants until they’re legal citizens? – You decide
Just because we're the land of the free, doesn't mean we're fine with people ignoring our rules.
Gov. Christie recently said if he was elected president he would hire a chief FedEx executive to develop a tracking system that would monitor foreigners when they enter the U.S. with a visa.
This sounds like a great idea to me, and it shouldn't be hard to accomplish considering credit card companies and retailers already track us. Facial recognition services are an option, too.
Rich, a caller from Bound Brook, said it shouldn't be a big deal to track immigrants because they enter the jurisdiction of our laws when they enter our borders. He says illegal aliens are also often the ones abusing social services, and tracking might help reduce the issue.
Mark from New Brunswick, however, said the idea is akin to the tattoos put on Jews in Nazi occupied Germany.
People clearly have strong opinions about this topic, so what's yours? Do you think the U.S. should track illegal immigrants? Is it even possible to accomplish this feat?
