So, yesterday, in the pouring rain, I had to go to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) to get an eye exam, in order, to renew my driver’s license. I read the first three lines of the eye chart which took all of 2 minutes. However, prior to the eye exam, DMV needed my birth certificate, social security card and a piece of mail with my address on it for a new program called REAL ID because in 2020, you will no longer be able fly using your old driver license as identification.
I mentioned this to my middle brother and I did not know how much of an impact that all these ICE round-up had on him because both of my brothers were born on military bases in England – both boys are foreign born. Obviously, my brothers are naturalized citizens as both my parents were born in the U.S.
My brother was like “Do you think they have ICE agents at the DMV?” Yikes!!!
I had two former coworkers that was born in Panama at Howard A.F.B. I am also sure that they are both feeling a bit uneasy about this ICE business.
