BTC- *BEWARE OF MISINFORMATION FROM THE HERITAGE INSTITUTE*
You are ill advised to volunteer any personal information on a poll like this.
Real ID is not "a reality". It now comes in the veiled or non-combative reconstituted form of "secured licenses" or "come to the DMV to renew your licenses today!".
Over 25 states have legal bans against the regulations and some of the technologies in Real ID licenses.
HOW TO TELL IF YOUR STATE IS REAL ID CERTIFIED
If you ask Heritgae or Center for Immigration Studies, who want North American population and movement limitation control so badly they may have spent money on this consumer poll - the answer will be YES. If you go to DHS the answer will be No.
If you contact your State Attorney General's office you will get the real answer.
WHAT DO I ASK?
Ask if your Governor has submitted a letter, along with the Attorney General, to go along with the Real ID citizenship requirements or grant requirements for the federal program. Then ask if the DMV is moving ahead with any regulations to self-certify with the Real ID benchmark deadline January 15, 2013. Write down whatever they tell you.
Please report your findings to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will assemble a spreadsheet of States who have both bans against the Real ID Act and whom are entertaining regulatory compliance. These States may be breaking their own laws and should be held accountable to the State constituencies they serve.
From there we will be in contact with national advocates who are also lawyers or members of the National Lawyer's Guild to assess results of the findings.
