REAL ID = Real Mistake

Stop REAL ID! Submit comments to the Dept. of Homeland Security by May 8th!

  • A broad coalition of organizations across the United States is urging the public to submit comments rejecting the illegal national identification system created under the Department of Homeland Security’s REAL ID program.
  • Five states and several members of Congress have rejected the scheme, which creates a massive national ID system without adequate security or privacy safeguards, which makes it more difficult and costly for people to get licenses, and which makes it easier for identity thieves to access the personal data of 245 million license and cardholders nationwide.
  • To take action and submit comments against this fundamentally flawed national ID system, click here! Comments are due by 5pm EST on May 8, 2007.

    I was working with Homeland Security on Real ID when I was at the Dept of Transportation. While on the one hand it would be a little more convenient to have an ID that is easily recognized no matter what state I’m in (I live in a tri state area plus trips to PA), the down side would be when I get a speeding ticket in PA, VA or DC, it would show up on my MD record.

    In any case I don’t see how Real ID cannot be considered an unfunded mandate (don’t quote me on that, its just my personal opinion), and I don’t see how it would survive a court challange but I’m not the first to raise that question so we will see how this plays out.
