According to a lot of states, with the REALID. Well, for now.


They will receive pressure to comply in two ways:

1. by the withholding of funds

2. by the use of propaganda such as the article in the OP, which will convince the people that the state legislature's decision to push back on REAL ID is a bad one

I don't have a problem needing to travel outside the country. It's used for visa stamps and other stuff. I do have a problem with needing a passport to travel domestically. It is way over-reaching of the Federal Government.

to which the feds will reply:

"Oh but, uh, it's not our fault....it's your state....they are the ones causing the problem. go complain to your state legislature, not us."


nevermind the fact that they were the ones making these insane rules in the first place.

of course it's their fault, they are ones setting crazy laws and then pawning them off on the states to enforce or face penalties for not enforcing. Nevermind that it's the citizenry who pays the price.
ETA: Anyone else see a skyrocketing in the passport fees due to the increased volume and needing to hire extra folks for processing?

re: Passport required for domestic flights out of Louisiana


I used to be so passionate about travel. Now the government has effectively killed my enjoyment of it.

From being sexually molested or having naked photos taken of me just to get past security, to annoyances like taking shoes off and taking laptops out, to just generally being treated as a criminal...it all sucks.


It's a true shame when traveling in other countries is a freer and more enjoyable experience than it is in the supposed "land of the free."

We fricked it up, people. We fricked it up.

No....
LA's increase won't amount to squat in the already 12m+ applications they process now.

It's not very big. I usually have mine with me because I would misplace it otherwise

Interesting point. If you're in one of the other states that also refused the REALID requirements and are traveling thru La., would they require a passport and do they make this known up front?

The issue is that you don't need an ID to pass through security.

It is still up to the airlines to verify the authenticity of the traveler.

re: Passport required for domestic flights out of Louisiana


per wiki

Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington have joined Maine and Utah in passing legislation opposing Real ID.[52][53][54][55][56][57]

Similar resolutions are pending in Alaska, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.[58]

Other states have moved aggressively to upgrade their IDs since 9/11, and still others have staked decidedly pro-Real ID positions, such as North Carolina.[59] Some states whose legislatures passed non-binding resolutions opposing REAL ID are nonetheless working to comply with the law, such as Illinois.[60] In announcing the new regulations, Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff cited California, Alabama and North Dakota[61] as examples of states that had made progress in complying with Real ID.

Not many states on board with it

Agreed. Entering the US after being out for a while is weird. It's nice to be home, but the increase in security and regulations at the airport is strange.

Plus, I hate being hassled by the customs officers when I'm a US citizen coming back into my own country.... I've also seen them be embarrassingly rude to foreigners simply trying to go on vacation.

This... My dad traveled to South Korea and said they had no lines, didn't have to take off any shoes or anything, and wasn't molested by the freaking screeners.

The TSA is a joke.

Not a big deal imo. Im glad they have tight rules like this. Id like it as safe as possibly when my family flies somewhere.

As soon as another islamabad frick goes nuts, everyone will blame TSA for not being strict enough.

SO what happens when people have connecting flights through LA? And they have no clue about this stupid law.

I flew out of London a few years ago and it was waaay stricter than the US. There was 2 full screening stations, one to get in the terminal and one to enter your gate.

Theres tons of TSA screw ups out there to complain about, but the regulations are necessary. The idea is to keep Americans safe, a little inconvenient maybe but worth it.
