Public Description:  

H.R. 502 would have required a secure and verifiable ID be used to obtain Federal public benefits. This would prohibit federal agencies from accepting non-verifiable ID documents issued by foreign governments, such as the matricula consular, thus preventing illegal aliens from applying for any federally provided public benefit.
