          USC's asked for more security at the borders and now we have it. Enjoy carrying that passport whenever you leave the country (just like the rest of the world does).

                Davdah is a proud, card-carrying GOP member and as such they don't like BIG Government prying into their private lives (who does?)...so this kind of enforcement isn't exactly popular with them (or me), yet "we" asked for better enforcement of the borders, so this is what we've ended up with. Enjoy carrying that shiny new blue passport

                Now in theory, the EU member countries (if you are an EU citizen of course) have no immigration borders between them. But I can tell you, you still have to show a passport when crossing the border. Welcome to the rest of the world USA.

                        Brit what is your story? Curious

                        I honestly have no issue with us having to carry our passports. I question why we are just now passing such laws.

                        Now this same se* **** is nuts. As though there aren't real immigrations issues to be addressed.

                        This will decrease fraud, lmao, even I'm not that stupid.

                              All these measures came from the Homeland Security Act of 2002. It's just taken a long time for many of these provisions to become law. I guess they didn't want to phase in everything all at once?
