    I must show ID when:

    When pulled over by the Police.

    Making purchases on my credit card.

    When I verify medical insurance for a doctor's appointment.

    When filling out a credit card or loan application.

    When applying for or renewing a driver's license.

    When applying for any kind of insurance.

    When filling out college applications.

    When donating blood.

    When obtaining controlled prescription drugs.

    When making some debit purchases, especially if I'm out of state.

    When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel.

    When proving I am of legal age to buy booze and cigarettes.

    When voting at the polls.

    When applying for Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid benefits.

    When enlisting in the military.

    When entering a military base.

    When applying for food stamps.

    When applying for disability or economic assistance.

    When cashing a check.

    When entering my place of work.

    When applying for or renewing a passport

    I'm sure there are more instances but the point is,

    that we citizens of the USA are required to prove who we are nearly every day.

    Why should people in this country illegally be exempt.


    GO ARIZONA !!!

    They aren't. They are required to show the same form of ID for those same items.

    What planet have you been living on?

    Does the ID that you have to show in all of the above situations prove that you are a US Citizen?

    If in most of those situations a state issued drivers license is adequate, then you have only proven residency, not citizenship.

    Each time I go into ER I have to show an ID.
    Write or cash a check.
    When I pick up vicodin from my pharmacy.
    I do not go the the ice cream parlor without my ID.
    Also carry my Medical imfo which is extensive. Just in case I am not able to converse.
