Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to track all license plate data in the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security wants a private company to provide a national license-plate tracking system that would give the agency access to vast amounts of information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers, according to a government proposal that does not specify what privacy safeguards would be put in place.
But don’t worry about the potential for abuse or this intrusion into privacy. The Administration that has used the IRS, the EPA, OSHA, and the NLRB to harass its political opponents pinky-swears it would never, every abuse the licence plate data.
A spokeswoman for DHS’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) stressed that the database “could only be accessed in conjunction with ongoing criminal investigations or to locate wanted individuals.”
She went on to claim that the word ‘gullible’ does nto appear in the dictionary.
They also claim they will use this new power to help secure the border.
The national license-plate recognition database, which would draw data from readers that scan the tags of every vehicle crossing their paths, would help catch fugitive illegal immigrants, according to a DHS solicitation.
If the DHS isn’t using the resources it already has to catch illegal immigrants … or, to use the politically correct term, Undocumented Democrats… why should we believe they’ll use this one for that purpose?
BTW: Obama is working out an agreement with the Mexican Presidente to ease border restrictions. I am sure there is no need to consult with Congress on this, either.
