Producing or manufacturing identity documents that are issued by legal authorities by individuals who are not authorized to create these documents is a crime.

The crime also encompasses the creation of identity documents with the intent to deceive those seeing the documents about the status or identity of the person carrying them.

Identity documents are different from other credentials because they are designed and intended for use only by the person who is holding them. These documents can be used to limit or expand the activities of the bearer.

Criminals forge identity documents that include driver's licenses, birth certificates and Social Security cards. False documents can be used to commit identity theft, illegal immigration, organized crime activities, or age deception.
