My name is Kaye Beach. If you don’t know me, here is the short story; I’m an ordinary woman, a Christian, a mom, and a wife. I was a small business woman for about 20 years but for the last six years I have been an activist with one mission – to stop mandatory biometric ID.
I have filed a lawsuit against the state of Oklahoma to challenge the requirement of my biometric data in exchange for a state driver’s license. I believe that this requirement is a violation of my right to religious freedom and my right to be free of unwarranted searches and seizures both of which are protected under Oklahoma law. (You can read my Motion for Summary Judgment here)
Biometric means “measurement of the body.” This is technology is used to measure aspects of an individual and transform this personal data into digital code for the purpose of identification. With biometrics, your body IS your ID.
Biometric identification creates a perfect connection between our bodies and information about us. It is also used to control access to places, services and goods and it is being implemented around the world through deception, coercion and stealth. Industry experts predict that within five years, the majority of the world’s population will be enrolled into one or another biometric identification scheme.
The simple truth is that all of us are being enrolled into a single, global system of identification and control that links our bodies through biometrics to our ability to buy sell and travel (and more!)
My lawsuit is based on the Oklahoma Religious Freedom Act and Article II Sec. 30 of the Oklahoma constitution, our state’s reiteration of the Fourth Amendment which says we have a right to be free of searches and seizures without just cause. When it comes to biometric ID, It makes no difference whether you are a Christian who is preaching the Gospel, an activist protesting injustice, or merely an ordinary person trying to work and feed your family – mandatory biometric ID means ultimate control by government.
Information is power.
As more and more of us are enrolled it is safe to predict that the balance of power that exists between the people and their governments will correspondingly shift further away from the people and towards government. History shows us that, unerringly, that such power will be abused and the window of opportunity to resist this system of human identification and control is closing.
In the US, enrollment is being accomplished largely through state driver’s license and ID cards. For example, the current Immigration reform bill seeks to build upon the existing DMV biometric databases and use our biometrics to control our ability to work for a living.
And as Jennifer Lynch of the Electronic Frontier Foundation has testified,
‘The FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) database represents the most robust effort to introduce and streamline multimodal biometrics collection. FBI has stated it needs “to collect as much biometric data as possible . . . and to make this information accessible to all levels of law enforcement, including International agencies.” Accordingly, it has been working “aggressively to build biometric databases that are comprehensive and international in scope.”’
The state biometric DMV databases are the foundation for corporate and government tracking and control. This is why I am fighting the state’s mandatory biometric ID but I need your help in order to win.
The Constitutional Alliance writes, “Kaye Beach’s lawsuit, is the only substantial challenge to government mandated biometric ID, to my knowledge, that exists anywhere in our country.”
My lawsuit is challenging the compulsory nature of biometric ID. I want to know – do we have the right NOT to be enrolled? That is the question that has not been asked, that must be asked in a court of law, and this is why I am asking for your help. We have one more deposition to complete and then the case should proceed on to the courtroom. My legal representation is not free and my case will only go forward if people are willing to support it. I need to raise $20,000 for my legal fees in order to keep my agreement with my legal team and keep my case moving forward.
There are no longer any technical or political barriers to implementing this unprecedented system of global identification and financial control. The only obstacle now is you and I.
