All 50 states are issuing REAL ID drivers’ licenses, 19 years after Al Qaeda jihadis used fake drivers’ licenses to help murder 3,000 Americans in the 9/11 atrocity, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed Thursday in a statement.
The agency statement said:
After more than 15 years since Congress passed the REAL ID Act [in 2005], all 50 states are now in full compliance issuing these cards, with most states becoming compliant in the last four years,” said the agency statement, that continued:
To date, the 50 states have issued more than 105 million REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards, representing 38 percent of all driver’s licenses and identification card holders.
On October 1, 2021 – less than 13 months away – full enforcement of REAL ID will take effect at all federally regulated airports, federal facilities, and nuclear power plants.
