You and Joe may be Federalists instead of Anti-Federalists and that’s fine. I just don’t like any of the Fed agencies having too much leeway without recourse.
In normal America, that NY ID would be respected, even if it’s not Federal.
But we’re not in normal America right now.
There was MAVNI but that’s been suspended in 2017 and doesn’t extend to family, unlike green card holders, although I suspect while it was going on, they’d turn a blind eye as long as they had something (like a valid NY ID card) because that’s a verified paper trail, if weaker.
