In Texas, citizens need a state-issued identification card or drivers license to do many things, such as:
Rent an apartment or house
Apply for a job
Open a bank account
Apply for social services such as SNAP or Medicaid
Pick up prescriptions
Visit your children at their school
But to get a state-issued ID in Texas, you’ll need your original or a certified copy of your birth certificate PLUS two more supporting documents such as a Social Security card, military ID, or voter registration card.
How could you prove who you are if you had no birth certificate, no supporting documents, no money, and no address?
