It is likely to pass in the Republican dominated Senate. If it does, everyone in the country will be required to carry one.

Politechbot.com sums it up: The Real ID Act, would "institute controversial immigration changes. Real ID removes the right of judicial review - including habeas corpus - for people fleeing persecution, undermines the privacy rights of even native-born Americans, burdens the states with complex and unfunded ID requirements, makes it harder for battered women to hide from their abusers, scapegoats the immigrant community and does nothing to address the actual problem of border security and enforcement in the United States."
