    Passport, state issued ID plus birth certificate or social security card. This will satisfy the requirements of the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service.)

    Make sure the state ID that is presented is real. Its very easy to get those fake! Check for the hologram, and be sure that the emblems on the card are the ones that are for your state, in your case New Jersey.

    Social Security Card is important also. Birth Certificate if you desire.

    everyone has to be treated equal. anytime i applied for a job, all they wanted was one state issued i.d. i can't ask an american guy for just a drivers license, then ask a seemingly spanish individual for several forms of i.d, that would be racial profiling.

    All employee's, US citizen and otherwise need to have this form filled out and filed in your office......

    Either one ID from List A or a combination of list B and C....

    it may seem confusing, but its not...

    If it looks fake don't take it, why put yourself in that position....
