Doris Rogue got in line at Woodward High School at 5 a.m. Saturday for the chance to get an identification card that would be honored by the City of Cincinnati.
A Nicaraguan, she crossed illegally into the United States almost 15 years ago, leaving behind an infant son she hasn't seen since.
The identification card, she said Saturday morning through an English-speaking interpreter, would simplify the process to send money back to the Central American nation to support her son and other family members.
"It might help me get a bank account here," said the 43-year-old mother of two, including a U.S.-born citizen, a daughter, Carlissa.
The identification card, issued by a local religious coalition, was in great demand Saturday – their first day of widespread availability.About 350 people, almost all of them undocumented immigrants, like Rogue, completed the process Saturday for the ID card. Issued by the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati, it is known as the MARCC ID. It is being produced by Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, which will mail the card within two weeks. http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2016/08/20/immigrants-flood-marcc-id-card-registration/89050296/
