For those of you who many not be aware, the Federal Government is currently in the process of creating a type of national ID card. Essentially, it's a more secure driver license "designed to make it harder for terrorists, illegal immigrants and con artists to get government-issued identification." There are three "security layers" states can choose to implement. And some already have.
"In California, for example, officials expect the only major change to adopt the first phase would be to take the photograph at the beginning of the application process instead of the end."
Perfect! Because everybody knows California has done a fantastic job managing illegal immigration! No illegal immigrants or con artists in that state! No siree!
