Just as soon as the Prince William County School system announces that it will implement a new security system that will verify identification documents and check for potentially dangerous criminals, we see that there’s a huge loophole for illegal aliens and persons presenting identification documents from foreign nations that cannot be checked for authenticity. That particular cave-in for the benefit of illegal aliens only took about 24 hours.
Here it is, According to the MJM:
Visitors can show any government-issued identification card, school division spokesperson Irene Cromer said. The ID card could be issued by the United States government or the government of another country, she said.
And just how is one to determine, even if the system is automated, whether the ID card issued by another country is valid, and whether that person does or does not have a criminal conviction in that country? We can’t possibly determine that. Foreign governments do not provide us with access to their criminal databases, or those used to support identification documents to determine whether they are legitimate or not. Additionally, these documents are provided in a remarkably fast timeframe that suggests that little if any verification is done to determine whether the applicant for these documents is telling the truth when they apply for them. Earlier, when a local university helpfully allowed the Mexican Government to provide their nationals in Virginia the opportunity to obtain identification documents if they lacked them, this process only took a couple of hours. Have you ever gotten identification cards within this kind of timeframe? I thought not. That’s a huge red flag.
One of the potential identification documents that would be accepted, as this article suggests, is the notorious “Matricula Consular” card. The FBI says this documement is untrustworthy. It’s very easy to purchase fake identification documents of this sort, and fraud with these is legendary. CIS notes that even hard-core criminals can easily obtain them. We’ve seen these same weaknesses with the identity documents provided by other foreign nations, such as El Salvador, as well. To allow foreign identification documents as identification is utter madness.
There is no defensible reason for schools to accept identification documents that cannot be validated and which are all too frequently fraudulent to gain access to the schools where our children spend so much of their day. If we don’t have any way to accurately ascertain whether someone entering our schools is a potential threat, as is the case with identification documents provided by foreign nations, this new policy is utterly useless, and an ineffective inconvenience without any actual real purpose.
This new policy need some serious improvement.
