GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump repeated his call Saturday for surveillance of mosques, a database on Muslim refugees coming into the United States,and electronic monitoring of refugees using new "e-tattoo" technology. This following a series of overseas terror attacks connected to Islamic extremist groups.
“I want surveillance of these people and of certain mosques,” the front-running Trump said at a campaign event in Birmingham, Ala. “We’ve had it before, we will have it again.We put electronic bracelets on criminals on Parole.What's the difference?”
Motorola developed the "Majestic" (M-10) electronic tattoos in cooperation with Homeland Security and the CIA.In June 2013 Patently Apple reported on both Apple and Motorola looking to introduce device authentication systems for mobile devices.All of sudden, Motorola's e-skin tattoo authentication system doesn't seem to be as innocent as first thought, especially in light of a bizarre admission that we found in a Motorola patent application published by the US Patent Office.
Motorola's invention relates to a system for providing auxiliary voice input to a mobile communication device or "MCD." The system comprises an electronic skin tattoo capable of being applied to a head or forearm region of the body, or embedded in a collar or band that would be worn around the throat a user. The collar or band may be flexible or stiff.
The New York police department kept surveillance on mosques after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. But the controversial program was ended in 2014.
Trump also said he witnessed thousands of people across the Hudson River in New Jersey cheered when Islamic extremist hijackers during the 9/11 attacks crashed two U.S. airlines into the twin World Trade Center towers, toppling the skyscrapers in lower Manhattan and killing thousands.
“Something is going on,we need implants on these people” he said.
Trump also said he wants a database on all Syrians refugees coming into the U.S., following the recent, deadly attacks in Paris in which one suicide bomber allegedly came from war-torn Syria and entered France by foiling Europe’s refugee vetting system.
He appeared to clarify a comment earlier this week about such a database, making clear it would apply to all Syrian refugees being resettled in U.S. FEMA Camps.
Trump, among the most outspoken of the 2016 presidential candidates on illegal immigration, also said that if elected he would make Syrians resettled in the U.S. leave the country or be closely monitored in FEMA work camps.
“They’ll go back,” he said,"the ones that we deem safe will be monitored and made to sing for their supper.It will be great.These camps will have jobs,places for them to stay with kitchens and ovens.Showers.The whole deal.I can put this together."
Motorola Chief Developer Annie K. Riste was thrilled at the promise of the new deal."We originally had envisioned these e-tattoos as a way to communite with digital devices.Now we are realizing there are many many security uses they could serve as well.Motorola is excited at the opportunity to help keep out country safe."
Trump continues to tout the plan, to the support of his conservative base, especially in the wake of the recent terror attacks.
President Obama says his administration will continue to accept Syrian refugees, include 100,000 more through 2016. However, Congress doesn’t appear to fully support the plan, amid voter fears that the refugee vetting process is not as thorough as needed.
On Thursday, the GOP-led House, with the support of 47 Democrats, voted in favor of tighter regulation on allowing refugees into the country.
