Internal passport system

The transition to an internal passport system continues:

This change will apply exclusively to individuals that simply refuse to provide any identification or assist transportation security officers in ascertaining their identity.


The third paragraph is also interesting: they cite to particular authorities for this act. Is this an attempt to put off the EFF/ACLU’s inevitable suit in the style of Gimore v. Gonzales? At least this time they’re showing us the law—but it’s bad law and bad policy. I wonder what happens if you hand the TSA folks a little imitation пропи́ска.
