WILL REAL ID ACT GO BYE-BYE?

Rate this Entry

The REAL ID Act really marked the beginning of the current ugly, anti-immigrant chapter in Congress. The 2005 law basically calls for the creation of a national ID system by requiring states to meet a number of requirements with respect to drivers licenses. Congress patted itself on the back for approving the measure that would make it much tougher for illegally present immigrants to get drivers licenses. But they didn't say much about the fact that they were passing a huge unfunded mandate for states. And many states have openly rebelled. Now Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is leading the charge in the Senate to repeal the REAL ID Act. And he just might have the clout to get the job done.
