There is no true national identity card in the United States of America, in the sense that there is no federal agency with nationwide jurisdiction that directly issues such cards to all American citizens for mandatory regular use. Instead, since the United States is a federal republic, citizens are identified by a patchwork of documents issued by both the federal government as well as individual state and local governments. All legislative attempts to create a national identity card have failed due to tenacious opposition from liberal and conservative politicians alike, who regard the national identity card as the mark of a totalitarian society.

  • Das offizielle Ausweiswesen wird in den Vereinigten Staaten auf bundesstaatlicher und nicht auf Bundesebene geregelt. Es gibt kein dem deutschen Personalausweis entsprechendes bundesweit geltendes Dokument.
