I’m not sure if Mexico is going to use a card with a computer chip or will actually plant a biochip into a human being, but if it’s the latter I’m very afraid. I’d imagine that majority of the migrants Mexico captures and turns away are on their way to the US so anti-“illegal” immigration groups should applaud them. I just hope they’re not planning on starting what many people feel will be the first signs of the end of the world as we know it.

Mexico to track migration by chip card

MEXICO CITY — Mexico plans to use cards with electronic chips to better track the movements of Central Americans who regularly cross the southern border to work or visit.
Starting in March, the National Immigration Institute will distribute the cards to record the arrival and departure of so-called temporary workers and visitors. They will replace a nonelectronic pass formerly given to foreigners who cross into Mexico, which has proved “easily alterable and subject to the discretion of migration agents,” the institute said Thursday.
