Despite, being white and well assimilated (like a borg), I’ve carried my Social Security card and passport since I became a citizen.
Just last month, I was working on a film set and the consent form said, “Please provide proof of citizenship.” I panicked a little because I forgot my passport. As soon as I handed my paperwork to the agent, he looked me over and said,”Obviously, you were born in America…”
Obviously… What? No, that’s not a taco in my pocket.
Of course, the worst that could happen in this scenario is that I don’t get to be an extra on ‘Louie’ (oh the irony)– not deportation. Thanks to assumption, I had the honor of being pushed by Parker Posey for six or seven takes."
