Guilford County, NC — Mexican citizens stood in long lines to get identification documents from the accommodating Mexican consulate, so they can have an easier time signing up for county and federal services — plus get a driver’s license.

At this point I would have no issue kicking the Mexican diplomatic staff out of our country.

The Mexican consulate has a mobile van that travels around and hands out 'matricula consular' IDs to illegals. At least in my state, the politicians have discovered that the matricula consular isn't worth the paper it's printed on. No US ID/birth certificate = no driver's license.

You can't even open a bank account in Mexico, if the matricula consular is your form of ID.

Isn't that special?! Yet, we are expected to accept these worthless forms of ID in this country; otherwise, we are racists, nativists, or xenophobes. Where do they get their gall?

Yes, unlike legal citizens, illegals do not need an SSN. Thousands of citizens have closed accounts with BofA due to their pandering to illegals. I am proud to be a member of that group; and I most definitely told them why, after having accounts with them since my late teens, I could no longer remain a customer. As soon as my last CD matured, I bid them farewell.

I'm sure it's not a coincidence that Mexico has more consulates in the US than any other foreign entity.

That's because there's more Mexicans in the USA than in Mexico.

In Mexico, citizens of voting age are given a voting card that Identifys them as Legal Mexican Citizens/Residents. Surely many of those who cross the US border illegally are of Mexican Voting age and have cards. Steve
