NEW YORK Money sent from Mexican workers in the United States to their families back home has reached a record $12 billion in 2003, Mexican President Vicente Fox said Wednesday.

Moderator cut: copyrighted article

SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Mexico -- Remittances are Mexico's biggest source of income, says Fox

The only Mexican citizens in the United States that needs these Matricula Consular identification cards are illegal aliens.

Immigrants here legally already have the proper identification and documents to get drivers licenses and open bank accounts without a need for these cards.

This kind of thing really makes me wonder what US government officials and US Companies have hidden handshakes with the Mexican government. I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but...

I just wish the US government would come out and say "we sponsored these peoples existence in the US" because that is how I look at it. Knowingly allowing the Mexican Consulates to provide these kind of id's really makes me think the US government is in on it. Somehow I think Oil is in the middle of this hidden agreement.

According to Illegal Immigration Counters website, the sum since 2006 wired to Mexico $41,471,100,075 and rising by the second. Illegal Immigration Counters - Data Source

MONEY WIRED TO MEXICO: Good For Mexico, Lost Revenue That America Needs:

Background: The term "Money Wired" represents all forms of methods used for transfer. Only officially recorded remittances are published in this counter, as much as 50% of remittances go unreported. In October 2002, Banco de Mexico issued a set of rules instructing all firms dedicated to the service of funds transfers to provide monthly information on the amounts and volume of remittance sent to Mexico, classified by Mexican recipient state. In 1993, however, the Central Bank realized that there was a lot of money flowing into Mexico that still was not being counted because it was entering the country through electronic transfers, an expanded array of banking and other financial institutions, pocket transfers, and in-kind transfers. Thus, it incorporated into its balance of payments electronic transfers of remittances (with the assistance of the relevant companies) as well as an estimate of pocket and in-kind transfers. This had a significant impact on the bank’s estimate of remittances, leading to a reported $3.69 billion in 1994, $3.67 billion in 1995, and $4.2 billion in 1996 (Migration News 1997). These are consistent with other estimates, including Lozano-Ascencio 1996 ($3.87 billion), World Bank 1997 ($3.7 billion), and the Binational Study 1997 ($2.5-$3.9 billion).

That website is also complete bogus, how can you count the exact number of illegals? I mean they can't be counted.. all those numbers from that immigration website is bogus. They don't come out and say "Hey look at me, I'm illegal!". We can only estimate.
