As with the rest of the signs that we watch daily, we can watch and observe the gradual progression towards this ultimate form of control over the world's citizens. We watch the road continue to be paved as we more towards the Tribulation:
All Children to be registered in a national biometric records
Below the radar of public opinion, Mexico has started to assemble the type of biometric national identity database that could be used to document names for a North American Trusted Traveler border pass card, a plan already being developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Mexican citizens.
It apparently would be similar to the program that has become commonplace in the European Union to allow free transit for EU citizens to move, live and work wherever they choose within the EU, disregarding nation-of-origin and national border restriction
On Jan. 19, 2011, Mexico's President Felipe Calderon signed an executive order requiring within the next five years all Mexicans 17 years old and younger have a biometric national identity card that would include a facial photograph, all 10 fingerprints, and an iris scan.
And we are all becoming conditioned to the idea of having a "national ID" which contains "biometric identification".
To carry out the presidential executive order, the Mexican Directorate General of the National Population Register plans to go to all elementary schools in Mexico schools in Mexico to record the required biometric information and issue individual identity cards.
Reasonable estimates are that by the end of 2012, Mexico plans to issue more than 25.7 million biometric identity cards to the nation's children 18 years old and younger.
It just starts with the children, then it will progress to include all citizens:
Once the nation's children are recorded in this biometric national identity database, the plan is to add a second phase that will extend the biometric identification cards to Mexican adults, with a third phase designed to establish a national registry for all foreigners residing in Mexico.
What about the U.S.? Any similar plans in place?
Four years ago, on Sept. 27, 2006, WND reported that the Department of Transportation acting through a Security and Prosperity Partnership "working group" was preparing to issue North American biometric border passes to Mexican, Canadian and U.S. "trusted travelers," according to documents released to WND under a Freedom of Information Act request.
As described on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website, the Trusted Traveler Program allows applicants to receive a biometric border pass to facilitate cross-border travel, after undergoing a thorough background check against criminal, law enforcement, customs, immigration and terrorist files, including biometric fingerprint checks and a personal interview with a CBP officer.
The "Trusted Traveler Network" is more completely described on the "Global Entry website maintained by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

In a file on the CBP website that instructs applicants how to obtain a Trusted Traveler of North America biometric card, a generic sample of the Trusted Traveler card is presented, complete with the logo of North America in the upper right hand corner (link here)
Searching the Canadian website for the Canada Border Services Agency, an adaptation of the generic Trusted Traveler card can be found for the FAST program:
FAST, an acronym for "Free and Secure Trade," is identified on the CBP website with a logo that includes the three flags of the North American countries – the United States, Canada and Mexico.Link here
Baby steps for now - but the progress that we are seeing towards the eventual Mark of the Beast is remarkable. Like the signs of this age - this too is showing amazing progress towards the ultimate form of identification - one that will require complete submission to the antichrist.
The road is now being paved towards that eventuality.
