National ID cards and biometric chips

According to the Fox Nation blog:
Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill are proposing a new national biometric ID card that would be required of all U.S. workers. WSJ's Laura Meckler explains the proposal and the objections from privacy advocates.

Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.
So you won't be able to work (and if you can't work, you can't buy or sell) without a national ID card implanted with a biometric chip. No word about whether they are going to give the option to have the biometric chip implanted in one's right hand or forehead (Rev. 13:16 ;-)

I certainly agree that we need to get a handle on illegal immigration, but this is not the way to do it!
