The REAL ID Act aims to create national standards for state issued driver’s licenses and identification cards so they may be used to board commercial aircraft and access certain federal facilities.

Someone needs to ask these people if illegal immigrants will be required to have one of these ID's.
If they say yes then the cards have no value since its not securing anything.
If they say no then they undermine their position when it comes to ID's, elections and what not.
Ironic that they will sue states that require people to show Id before voting while at the same time restricting access to federal facilities unless they have an ID.
I was wondering the same thing about Illegals, apparently this ID is to help identify them.
Now the problem I see with this is...They are going to start letting them LEGALLY drive here in California, so how the hell is this going to work I have no Idea. It will probably end up being a cluster BLEEP.
Hmmm. what the heck is a real ID. I think they are trying to give those who like to do identity theft a challenge to keep them busy.
This announcement follows a nearly year-long period of deferred enforcement.

I gave you the source....www.ncsl.org...
That is a official website. Yes it was put on hold to give states more time. It was never cancelled.
Look how these federal conglomerate agencies are starting to really put the hammer down, kind of like Thor does..
Everything they do now feels like punishment or enslavement, or assault, or.. you get the idea.. Perhaps the politicians who got this passed, should be targeted for extreme retribution. This ID act is great for citizens, but not necessary for illegals, at least this is what Obama and Eric Holder keep saying.
