DHS Fails Again to Implement ID Card Protections
Lost amid the scuffle of fiscal cliff negotiations and holiday preparations was the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) December 20 statement confirming that only 13 states were deemed REAL ID compliant and that the remaining states would receive another extension. Unfortunately, that means DHS isn’t sure whether 37 states are doing enough to safeguard their ID cards from costly fraud or terrorism-related abuse.
The REAL ID Act is almost eight years old, but due to multiple failures at DHS, it is still not fully implemented.
