What I don’t get is while DMVs all of the US are requiring more documentation from legal citizens, illegal immigrants (and by definition “undocumented”) can waltz right in and get a driver’s license without any problems.
For example, DPS in Texas won’t accept CAC cards or retired ID cards as proof of military status. You need a dd214 and/or military orders to get the “veterans” designation on your license (it matters, you get discounts on stuff).
When renewing ten years ago in CT, I was asked for my SSN by a DMV clerk and I refused. They said, doesn’t matter we already have it in here !!!??
Note: Im 2007, I decided to be a good citizen (you know help out in hurricane or disaster) and get my Federal ham radio license. I passed the tests and the radio people said the feds won’t issue me or anyone a ham/amateur license with a SSN on the application. Another smart radio op said its all about child support. Another in your face violation of citizen rights.
A friend's kid was a passenger during a traffic stop and the cop wouldn't accept the kid's only ID that listed his dob in connection with his dad's military whatever ID. The kid wasn't driving and wasn't old enough for a license so there was no reason to even speak to him much less harass him. The dad had to go down to the police dept. and have a chat with the chief but still got no satisfaction.
