The driving "privilege" card could not be used to board a plane, register to vote or obtain any other official identification. It would have to be renewed annually and would have different fonts and colors than a regular driver's license.
Why, if they have enough information to issue this, don't they have enough information to give them a swift kick in the @ss back across the border?

Good question. I am sure the state would answer that their job is not to enforce immigration laws, but only ensure drivers on their roads are properly licensed.
One possible side effect of this law is that the gang-bangers who moved from California to take advantage of Utah's lax licensing laws and trusting populace to prey upon may just head back to California.
Definitely, a small baby step in the right direction. Next, the FEDS need to (1)start denying highway funds to states who refuse to close this loophole, (2)adjust the population downward for census appropriations by the number of illegal aliens in each state.
Illegal aliens are not morally equivalent to legal immigrants any more than counterfeit money is morally equivalent to genuine currency.
