The following is an excerpt.
San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos goes too far – too deep into Orwellian territory — in proposing that undocumented immigrants be required to submit DNA samples as a condition of staying in the United States.
Ramos is a good prosecutor and district attorney, respected enough by his peers to be a past president of the California District Attorneys Association and a current board member of the National District Attorneys Association. He is a staunch defender of victims’ rights and works hard on gang suppression.
He views the collection of DNA as a tool that is available to law enforcement, and so should be used to catch bad guys. That’s his job.
From a societal standpoint, it’s a bad idea.
