It is known as the "matricula consular" in Spanish. For years, hundreds of thousands of Latino immigrants in Arizona have relied on the photo ID cards issued by Mexico and other foreign governments to open bank accounts, enroll children in school, register cars, rent apartments and prove their identity during traffic stops by police.
But the use of the card, most popular with illegal immigrants ineligible to obtain state driver's licenses or other forms of government-issued ID, was thrown into turmoil last month when a new state immigration-enforcement law took effect. The law bans state and local government entities from accepting consular ID cards issued by foreign governments.

Good! The more steps taken to increase their fears of remaining here the better.
