Security Co. Push Spy Chip to Track Immigrants

High Tech security company Applied Digital and subsidiary VeriSign is lobbying Congress to include their radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips to be included as part of the Guest Worker Program.

Apparently, CEO Scott Silverman has been speaking to high ranking officials in Latin America as well.

...the company has gotten the buy-in from highly placed current and former government officials, including Columbian President Alvaro Uribe. He reportedly told Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) that he would consider having microchips implanted into Colombian workers before they are permitted to enter the United States to work on a seasonal basis.

Silverman went on the Fox News show Fox and Friends First to hard sell the idea to the public. He went on to "argue that the U.S. government should buy tons of his implantable RFID chips and literally inject them into the arms of immigrants who are guest workers in the United States."

If this is adopted by our government, we American citizens are next.
