Reply To: Passport requirement casts wide net, imposes badge of shame


Where does the punishment end? I served 13 years in prison, a punishment doled out by the court. We DO carry the “Scarlet Letter” and are truly the modern day lepers. The passport identifier is an international “badge of shame” but that’s for those who travel. I submit the “badge of shame” we all really should be concerned with is the identifier now printed in bold blue lettering on our drivers license.
