    Only visibly different need to show papers. Even trumps wife Melania has not had to show hers.. although during the campaign I thought the trump said she would.

    The doll on the left is allowed in. The doll on the right has dark skin: we don’t welcome that kind of immigrant.

    “Ya got your TSA agent right here. First, we got Barbie. Nice American girl, back from her dream vacation. We know she’s OK because she’s blond. So she gets in. Now, who’s up next? Uh oh, it’s Moana. Whoa. Slow your roll, honey. We’re gonna pat her down. Then we’re gonna read her emails and if we don’t like the answers — which we won’t — BOOM! Guantanamo Bay!” – Spicer McCarthy

    There is no such thing as “citizenship papers”. There is no law requiring citizens to possess, much less carry, proof of their citizenship. When I was younger, the mere suggestion of ID cards for citizens was met by violent opposition from the “conservatives”, who claimed it would be an intolerable violation of their personal freedom.


    I always considered bizarre that only “visitors” were required to have ID identifying them as such. (The same rule is also used by many companies.) It seems to me that a corollary of that rule is that a person with no ID must be assumed to be a citizen unless and until proven otherwise. In particular, it should be illegal to detain someone who doesn’t present ID if they would not have been detained as a citizen showing ID.
