The author investigates the impact that the Real ID Act, which mandates a federal ID card system, could have on New Mexico. The author explores the ways that the new law could affect immigration, civil liberties, and states rights. The author focuses specifically on how the law will affect New Mexico's illegal immigrants, because the bill nullifies a current state law that allows illegal immigrants to legally receive a New Mexico driver's license.
