REAL ID UPDATE: Border states Texas, New Mexico and other southwestern states are actively increasing public discourse on terms of immigration policy and whether or not federal legislation will perform or deliver terms of relief promised to put limits on undocumented migrants seeking work.  North Carolina seems to be reinforcing terms to reduce federal spending on Real ID; while a Youngstown, NC legislator seeks to move legislation prohibitive of federalizing local drivers licenses.  A Real ID compliant discourse is stirring Nevada two years after the state passed a local resolution requesting that the federal law be repealed.   States are expected to be federally compliant with the law by May 11th, 2011.  More opinion here and here.
