MA Driver’s Licenses May Not Be Good To Board Planes

getyimages

As if we don’t have enough challenges in this state, starting in April, Massachusetts Driver’s licenses will no longer work as proof of identification at government buildings and eventually to board airplanes. That is, unless the Commonwealth adopts a program that’s been rejected called “REAL ID.” The Real ID program requires states to check the citizenship or legal status of anyone applying for a driver’s license or state ID. Right now, the state only asks for a social security number or legal visa number. So why has the Bay State resisted complying with this federal program? It costs money and the Lefties in this state don’t believe in checking on someones citizenship. While 45 other states do check immigration status, Massachusetts will have to decide quickly whether or not to comply. If they don’t, good luck gaining entrance into federal buildings and airplanes!
