Real ID, Real Nightmare

From Aclu.tv: “This 90-second Freedom Files video short looks at the federal Real ID Act that may be on its way to your local motor vehicles office, where it would bring longer lines, worse service, bureaucratic nightmares, and higher fees – and turn your driver’s license into a true federalized national identity card that will be used to invade our privacy in ways Americans have never seen before. The piece features Bill Cattorini, a retired Chicago fireman who has been caught in a bureaucratic limbo due to a discrepancy between his birth date as listed on his driver’s license and the date on his social security card. That was never an issue until Illinois began trying to comply with some parts of Real ID. Now Cattorini can’t drive. Cattorini is hardly unusual in having a quirk or discrepancy in his bureaucratic records. And millions of others will face similar problems, or worse, if Real ID goes into effect. The key word is “if.” A battle is now raging over Real ID in state legislatures across the nation, with a growing number of states rebelling against this expensive (and unfunded) scheme. Already Maine and Idaho have declared that they won’t comply, and many other states are moving toward similar action. For more information about Real ID, please visit RealNightmare.org. A map showing the status of anti-Real ID legislation in each state is available here.
