Collateral Damage from the Real ID Law:

The authors of the Real ID law seem to truly hate terrorists and foreigners. The difficulties that this law raises for them could keep many of them out of the USA in the future, and we may become less of a cosmopolitan nation as a result. One of the side issues of the Real ID law is that it forbids keeping foreign refuges who have offered "material support" to terrorists. Unfortunately this vague phrase includes people who offered a goat, or a drink of water to terrorists at gunpoint or under threat of rape. Apparently we don't want "your tired, your poor", anymore. An article (July 22, 2006) by Peter Sachs at www.journalnow.com discusses these issues.
