Really? Which airport?

And immigration docs with me when I travel or else I will go through this every time at TPA. They said the rule has changed since the spring but I have been traveling every week and never experienced this. Is FL one of those states that choose to 'enforce' more 'rigorously'?

Is your license closer to expiration?

Whoa! I'm on an L1 with same disclaimer on my DL Thanks for the heads up. Sorry you had to go through that.

Now I got me worried a bit, since I live in Dallas and the ACLU just issued a travel alert for TX as the state instructed cops to check immigration status and enforce deportation / removal as they see fit (I'm obviously paraphrasing here) even during regular traffic stops / pullover. Carrying your passport and immigration docs everywhere is obviously not something most people would want to do, I assume.

It got me worried*

@P2: no. Expiration is not until mid / late 2018

I showed my EAD last time I went through airport security. Worked fine, even though it's limited time.

License from which state?

Maybe he just thought you were cute and wanted to kop a feel

@D1: Tx @HC1: sure. Big hunky black dude is just my type lol

But maybe you were his type!! 😏😏😏
