Your fax is on the way.
With respect to your question about breeder documents... the issue definitely warrants
attention.

The majority of the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11 had followed steps to obtain identification
without raising any red flags. Tools exist - from biometrics to smart cards - that are
capable of increasing our nation's security by ensuring the integrity of our
identification documents. With dentification so easily obtainable, a need to tighten
existing standards - or create new ones - has evolved.

There are "BIG" issues to think about - -

Some four million social security numbers /are now being used by more
than one person;

The birth certificate of most citizens ys easily and, in some


states, legally, obtainable by imposters, e/ven though that document can
become the first big step to unearned cirizenship;

Nearly one fifth of the 1.8 million applicants for general amnesty
originally entered the country not by sne,4king across the border, but by
using documents that were altered or /obtained under false pretenses;

The central enforcement feature of/ the 1986 immigration reforms


(IRCA)- penalties against employers/of illegal aliens - has what could
be a fatal flaw: it depends on the soundness of existing identification
documents for employers to determine the job seeker's right to work in the
United States. Document fraud has become a major enforcement hindrance.

What is your fax number? I've got the sentencing guideline materials that you asked me to
get.
