After the attacks on 911, proper identification became important especially when boarding a plane or using other mass transit. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to identify someone whose face is completely covered.
The ACLU claims that to do so though is a violation of the of the First/Fourteenth Amendments:
In obtaining drivers' licenses and otherwise engaging in civic life: Muslim women have been denied drivers' licenses unless they remove their headcoverings for the photograph.21 The same has happened to women seeking to obtain passport and NSA photos.
Is the ACLU correct?
