      I am an adopted foreign born naturalized citizen and a resident of Texas. The DL people told me just to bring my TX birth certificate (shows birth in Ireland) . I told them it showed a foreign birth, they said it wasn't a problem which of course it was. The next trip was with my original naturalization certificate and certified birth certificate. That didn't work they claimed because the picture was taken at the time of naturalization, when I was 13 months old, so how did they know I was the same person. When I pointed out that a TX birth certificate didn't prove I was the same person listed they called the supervisor.

      Long story longer took me 4 trips to get the "new " dl. I have had a TX DL for over 40 years. This is just a complete joke. The worst part is that I have the time and the records what happens to the elderly and the poor.

      It is only going to be a short time before the phrase "going postal " is rreplaced by going DL.

      We need to start now helping people get proper ID for 2016. Including lawyers filing lawsuits for individuals.

        Far too many people are working jobs that pay so little, they have 2 jobs.   They sleep a few hours a night.  When are they, and the poor (who have to find someone to drive them to the Birth Certificate and Document places and DMV during business hours) going to find the time and money to go through this awful process.

        There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
