View Diary: Do you have your birth certificate? (250 comments)

  •  I have my birth cert. It's in Spanish. (7+ / 0-)

    I was born in Lima, Peru. My USAF father was there as a liaison to the Peruvian Air Force.

    When I was ten years old, Dad took me to some office in New York where they had me sign papers so I would be "naturalized."

    So far I haven't had to show anyone my BC down here in Texas. God knows what would happen if I did. "M'gawd, she's a wetback! An illegal! Savvy English, senora?"

    Right now, you can vote in Texas by just showing a voter registration card or even a utility bill. Perry's doing his best to change that, of course......

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      Your DL expire more than 2 years in TX. It was a nightmare for me last year. Like you born abroad (Ireland so at least it was in English and Gaelic) immigrated under Irish passport was adopted (alert name change) then a new Tx birth certificate with Irish birthplace and then naturalized. I also had lost my SS card and had expired passport.

      Start now because I fear the Supremest will gut the Voting Rights Act and we will all be asked for "papers please " soon.

      I still do not have SS card because they want to send my naturalization papers to their LA office.

      I agree that BC seems to me to be the weak link it proves nothing. Soon they will want DNA test to vote (semi-snark)

      •  Darlin', no one lets their DL expire in Texas. (0+ / 0-)

        Unless they don't mind driving illegally.

        The nearest grocery store is a ten-mile round trip for me. The nearest Post Office? Ditto. Bank. Ditto. Hardware store? 20 miles round trip.

        Mass transit, even in the cities? A few buses for the workers.
