Oh man.... Seven pages later and the same argument over and over. The bottom line only those required to carry ID, such as vehicle operators, resident aliens, etc., other than that you decide if you want to carry. If you are stopped and investigated for a crime, the officdr will run your data in their database. Yes, carrying the ID is a convenience, an option and not required.

Maybe you need to identify the ID better.
Have you ever considered copying her card, keeping the original in a safe place, while giving her a duplicate? Aside from the obvious reasons for carrying some form of ID, I do believe ALL green card holders are required to carry their cards at all times. Is there an age exemption?

A ¨Student ID¨ is not state-issued ID? I´m trying to follow why carrying ID is ¨helpful¨ and practical for those with citizenship and immigration status (even though most ID proves either), but not the case by those lacking immigration status. Don´t we want a more official (photograph and fingerprint) method if a child, any child, is abducted?

Won´t somebody please think of the children?...
No, a K-12 student ID is not necessarily state issued. My son attended private schools, and they always issued photo IDs. Most schools do, regardless of immigration status. Doesn’t your 9-year-old have a student ID? Moreover, as chicagonut stated, any parent can have an ID made for their child.

How are we not thinking of the children?

Yes, you didn't know? Under the age of 18 carrying the Residency Card is not Federally mandated (SB1070 didn't really address this nuance). Why does a 9 year-old need a copy if it only shows her name, and not our address?

In reality it is probably more practical to write the information down...

You want to make a copy of a Federal ID it tells you not to copy?...

Yes it is a requirement and all green card holders are told this when they are issued their card.

If she is not required to carry a green card, then give her another form of ID. It’s just that simple. No, of course you shouldn’t copy the card if it’s prohibited by law.

For public schools, the "Student ID" would be state-issued...

Riding on a public school bus is also "welfare"...

If a parent makes an ID, how are we sure that information is correct?...
