Real ID came into being back in 2005. The Western Hemisphere travel thing went into effect in 2007 or 2008. That is what started the whole passport to go to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and many other Caribbean locations. I went almost all the way to Yukon and about 75 miles north of Mexico City all via motorcycle back in the early 1990’s without issue. Spent many nights during my youth drinking in both Canadian and Mexican border towns. I was even able to go to Okinawa, mainland Japan and Thailand with only a military ID and a set of orders. Never needed a passport. Again, this is a new trend to lock us down perpetrated by our politicians, Democraps and RINO’s alike.
Again this is all new for Real ID was just enforced this year…….
Things are getting worse and worse from my perspective.
