I just got a driver’s license in Texas yesterday. I had to bring my birth certificate, social security card,automobile registration and proof of insurance, and a current driver’s license ( I had just moved from Illinois).

My hands were shaking so hard from fright I could barely remove the papers from the envelope. If I had been illegal I probably could just go to Joe down the street , get all the papers for a few bucks and waltz into the DMV no sweat. Instead I spent 3 hours in line terrified that my papers were not in order and I wouldn’t be issued a license. This definately isn’t the country I grew up in.
PS At least my new license is valid until 2019.
