"The REAL ID is vital to preventing foreign terrorists from hiding in plain sight while conducting their operations and planning attacks. By targeting terrorist travel, the REAL ID will assist in our War on Terror efforts to disrupt terrorist operations and help secure our borders," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) after the bill obtained Senate approval.
