“By the way, do you carry proof of citizenship with you everywhere you go”
Nope, but I’d be happy to produce it if needed. I also know my passport number, which they can pull up electronically.
“And no, carrying a Social Security card or driver’s license doesn’t count, as non-citizens can get those.”
Not in my state, they can’t — not a valid one, anyway — and verification is easy. But then my state is not run by liberal idiots who give EVERYONE a license.
