>>If someone walked up to you right now and said Prove youre a citizen...how would you do that?<<
Pull my social security card out of my wallet.
I don’t carry mine, but if they are going to enforce this law, then they need to set down specific parameters as to what will “prove” legal status. I know people can be here legally, and still not have a social security card. My next door neighbor is German, he’s here legally, but doesn’t have a green card, or a SSnumber. So there is going to have to be some sort of specification as to what proves you’re legal and what doesn’t.
A man from the Social Security office briefed my preretirement Transition Assistance Program class.
He said your social security card should be kept in a safe place and not in your wallet. It's a valuable tool for identity theft. If someone were to steal your wallet you might be in a world of hurt!
My foreign wife has a social security card. It looks just like mine with a different name and number.
She's not a citizen, only a permanent resident. In fact, she received her SS card when she was only a conditional resident.
