Real Problems with "Real ID"

The Center for American Progress has a good article summarizing the issues raised by RealID legislation, with references to other articles. Quotes:

"REAL ID would not have prevented 9/11. The 9/11 hijackers entered the U.S. with proper immigration documents, were “legal immigrants” when they received driver’s licenses, and possessed valid foreign passports that allowed them to board an airplane."

Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) said the bill “forces entry-level state employees ... to be INS agents. That's totally ridiculous. The states are going to have to enforce [immigration] laws that the federal government doesn't have the will to do."
