CVS rejects Purdue student's Puerto Rican ID, asks for immigration papers to buy cold medicine.
Arlene Payano Burgos’ point, writing from her home in Cayey, Puerto Rico: Her son “is, in fact, a United States citizen.”.
Payano Burgos wrote in a Facebook post that was still gathering steam this weekend in West Lafayette and Purdue circles.
Whatever triggered her to discriminate against my son embodies exactly what is wrong in the United States of America today.”.
“Yes, a Puerto Rican ID is considered a valid form of identification at CVS Pharmacy,” Thibault said.
He said the store employee told him he still needed to see some sort of immigration status before he could buy the cold medicine.
Payano Burgos said she wrote it in hopes that other Puerto Rican students wouldn’t go through similar situations. »
