On Feb 14th I wrote an article entitled Are You Seeing Stars on Your State Driver’s License? Say Hello to REAL ID
Janice Kephart, true believer in the Real ID cause and Director for National Security Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, stopped by to leave a comment on my blog singing the praises of Real ID and denying that it is a national ID. I was traveling when she left the comment and had little time and I will admit, little patience to respond to Ms. Kephart. Fortunately, someone else stepped in and gave a great rebuttal to Kephart’s claims. (You can read Gene’s reply at the bottom of the post in the comments section)
Paul Henry of Floridians against Real ID has been tireless in his activism and efforts to reverse the federal Real ID Act in his state for years now. Paul is also a retired law enforcement officer and one that worked specifically on driver license fraud and other identity-related cases. He too earned a visit from Janice Kephart and his reply to her was most thoughtful as well as extremely thorough. Highly recommended reading for anyone who wants to know the truth about Real ID.
Do you wonder;
- Would Real ID have stopped the 9 11 hijackers? Or illegal immigration?
- Does Real ID require an RFID chip?
- Is Real ID a “national ID”
