SPECIAL REPORT: Economic fright focuses police state lens

FIRST In REAL- ID news :

I recieved this informative letter from Sen. Kay Hutchison regarding Real ID. What comes to light is this was some sort of package deal for global policing. Hence the now really obvious direction of National ID card tenets.

"Thank you for contacting me regarding the REAL ID Act of 2005. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this issue.
The REAL ID Act of 2005 was introduced by Congressman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) in an effort to bring attention to a number of immigration and border security issues which were not addressed in the national intelligence overhaul legislation, S. 2845, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush in December 2004.

Specifically, the REAL ID Act of 2005 would give judges broader discretion in evaluating individuals seeking asylum, expand the definition of terrorist-related illegal immigration, and give the Secretary of Homeland Security greater authority to curb the flow of illegal immigrants along the southern border. In addition, the bill would require all applicants for state-issued identification and driver's licenses to prove their lawful presence in the U.S., establish minimum standards to which all state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards must conform, and encourage the sharing of electronic driver's license data among states.

The REAL ID Act of 2005 was passed by Congress as a part of H.R. 1268, the 2005 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, and was signed into law by President Bush on May 11, 2005. I appreciate hearing from you and hope you will not hesitate to keep in touch on any issue of concern to you. "

Please visit Wikipedia's Real ID link on this page to see if your state is with those who are stalling to give them time to repeal Real ID, rejecting Real ID or going along with the program.

  • Digimarc Lobbyists WIDE OPEN
  • Can TSA really enforce Real ID against consumer flight demands if states aren't backing the mandate up?
