I am in the State of New York. My family and I came here about 17 years ago (I was 4 and my older brother 5). I do not have a state issued ID, as they are requiring for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals biometrics. All my brother and I have are multiple high school ID's and a college ID. Our passports are in the government's custody because my parents have had a case in the immigration courts. Our lawyer says there's no way our physical passports can be released. We do, however, have copies of our passports. We just applied for our national ID's from our native countries. They will take about 1 and a half to 2 months. Our biometrics date is Oct. 23rd ( in 16 days).
