Read the article. Mexican officials are not "patrolling". The Guardian Angels are "patrolling". The Mexican Consulate has posted some personnel in Staten Island in an effort to safeguard the rights of individuals and effectively assist and provide information to the Mexican residents of this area.

"Five men attacked the 40-year-old Mexican man Friday night as he was walking home after a soccer game at Faber Park, cop said. The attackers allegedly pummeled him while yelling anti-Mexican epithets. The man suffered head trauma, a fractured jaw and needed ten stitches above his eye, officials said.
The group of men made off with his backpack.
This is at least the sixth violent, ethnically-charged incident that has taken place in the neighborhood since April, "

Police are investigating another assault on a Hispanic man in Staten Island as a possible hate crime -- and the Mexican government is now getting involved as well.
If the Mexican government is so concerned about their illegal citizens, they need to arrange to have them repatriated. They donít give a damn about them until they cross the border into the United States and send billions back in remittances.

Err, that is the role of consulates - including US consulates abroad - to assist and protect the citizens of the consul's own country.

Nothing in the article says that they are.

The role of a consulate is to provide protection and guidance to a country's own citizens.
