Need For National ID?

Title of an Editorial in the Palm Beach Post:

"Border lapses show need for a National ID card"

The editorial is about border security. An excerpt:

Congress passed a "Real ID" bill last year that attempts to standardize driver licenses by requiring states to include more information. It is the first step toward a national ID card that would use identifying biometrics such as fingerprints. Opposition to the national ID is based on privacy concerns, but the country may be at a point where border security trumps worries about potential problems with ID security.

Isn't this called a "passport"?
