Foreigners have a major problem in the USA and there is no
solution. The best thing we could do at this point is to close
the borders to illegals and immigration for at least 10 years.
Our freedom from government interference is more important than
your convenience or even your job.
"identity theft" is a ruse. Anyone can claim to be someone else
and come up with some evidence to support it. This has always
been the case.
If a drivers license were to become the 'solution' to the problem,
then all that would be needed would be a copy (real or counterfeit)
of that license.
Those that cannot protect their "identity" shall simply suffer
through the consequences.
The first place to start is to get rid of credit cards, then the SSN.
Without those there is no problem.

Yes and other countries are not the USA. Were we to copy other countries
the USA would soon become just another dictatorship.
