This is one of the stranger immigration stories in the news today. Remember REAL ID, the mandate passed by Congress in 2005 that largely creates a national ID card by requiring all states to make extremely expensive changes to their drivers licenses to make it impossible for people illegally in the US to get driving privileges? Apparently, many states didn't like being told to spend all that money and not be reimbursed by Washington. Now DHS is saying that they're going to pretend that the states are all going along even though many are telling DHS they have no intention of ever complying.
