Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that amends the Immigration and Nationality Act and grants the Secretary of Homeland Security the power to set minimal security requirements for state driver licenses and identification cards.

Highlights:
  • Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to require asylum applicants accused of being members or supporters of guerrilla, militant or terrorist organizations to prove that race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion was or will be (if removed) the central reason for their persecution (Sec. 101).
  • Expands the definition of "terrorist organizations" (Sec. 103).
  • Requires states to share driver's license data as a condition of receiving federal financial assistance (Sec. 203).
