A coalition of civil liberties groups on all sides of the political spectrum is working to strip these provisions from the bill and is enlisting your help.
Here are some of the most egregious provisions of the bill:
1. STATES MUST ISSUE FEDERALLY-APPROVED ELECTRONIC ID CARDS
The bill would force states to issue
all adults federally approved electronic ID cards. It would also require
US citizens to obtain assignment of SSNs prior to obtaining a driver's license

3. DIVERTS MILLIONS FROM STATE BUDGETS
The bill imposes up to $750 million dollars in unfunded mandates on the States – money that could be used for roads and education.
4. UNWARRANTED EXPANSION OF HSA SECRETARY IN IMMIGRATION & BORDER CONTROL
It gives the Secretary of HHS the ability to waive all laws without judicial review for the construction of fortifications and roads on or near the border.

Tell Senators to strip these provisions from the Supplemental Budget Bill, and voice your opposition to this extreme proposal.

• None of these databases should be linked together, and there should not be any inspection checkpoints.
