Does Congress support Global ID cards?

by Norm Singleton on NOVEMBER 21, 2014 in NATIONAL BLOG

Maybe. This week, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3398, the “Girls Count Act.” The purpose of this act is to protect the rights of girls in developing countries. This is certainly an admirable goal; after all, who could object to protecting the rights of girls?

Anyone who supports a non-interventionist, constitutional foreign policy, that’s who. Congress has no more authority to promote the rights of girls in developing countries than it does for any other foreign aid program.

Those who oppose National or International ID cards should also oppose this legislation. This is because H.R. 3398 made it official policy of the United States Government to work with “multinational organizations” (such as the World Bank and the United Nations) to “….to enact, implement, and enforce laws that specifically collect data on girls and establish registration and identification laws…”

US House to Vote on Imposing National ID Cards Worldwide ‘For the Children’

The US House of Representatives is scheduled to vote this week on HR 3398, legislation stating that it is the policy of the United States government to encourage other nations to require all citizens to have national identity cards.

HR 3398 also directs the US government to work with multinational organizations and private entities on imposing registration, identification, and documentation laws on people around the world. As is often the case with legislation intended to increase government power and expand foreign intervention, HR 3398 presents as its justification helping the children—girls in particular this time.

Section 3(1) of the bill defines the policy of the US government as follows:
SEC. 3. STATEMENT OF POLICY.

It is the policy of the United States to—

(1) encourage countries to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and enact laws that ensure girls and boys of all ages are full participants in society, including requiring birth certifications and some type of national identity card to ensure that all citizens, including girls, are counted;
Subsections (b) and (c) of Section 4 of the bill establish the roles of the US Secretary of State and the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in working with multinational organizations and private entities to “collect data on girls” and impose registration, identification, and documentation laws on people worldwide:
SEC. 4. UNITED STATES ASSISTANCE TO SUPPORT COUNTING OF GIRLS IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.
….
(b) COORDINATION WITH MULTILATERAL ORGANIZATIONS.—The Secretary shall coordinate with the World Bank, relevant United Nations agencies and programs, and other relevant organizations to urge and work with countries to enact, implement, and enforce laws that specifically collect data on girls and establish registration and identification laws to ensure girls are active participants in the social, economic, legal and political sectors of society in their countries.
