Ankle bracelets on immigrants?

Holy poop on a stick, Batman! Is this for real!? Are we taggin legal immigrants with the same devices we use on criminals? I'm not so sure this is good idea.. It feels like it could lead to the next thing.. Next thing you know, our kids will have them so we'll "know where they are." Followed by the government needing to keep a track of all its "citizens."

The Department of Homeland Security (that STILL sounds like something sinister.. like the Fatherland or the Motherland...) is becoming more of threat to real freedoms than a tool to protect our freedom.

This was on NPR and it's rather.. Disturbing.
