I think the coddling of illegal aliens has begun to stop:

The Mexican consulís office first offered the photo identification cards to local illegal immigrant workers two years ago, setting up shop for a day in the upscale Catalina Island Country Club restaurant. The matricula cards can be used to establish credit, open bank accounts, buy insurance and apply for government services.
The consulís office was originally scheduled to offer the service again Thursday at the country club.
But all that changed when Rohrabacher on Wednesday informed the restaurantís owner, the Santa Catalina Island Co., that State Department approval was necessary in order for any service to be provided by a foreign government on its property.

As a result, the company informed the consulís office that it could no longer operate out of the country club.
The consulís team of 12 specialists moved a few blocks away to St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church in Avalon.
But their problems were far from over.

I have come to enjoy the phrase; "F'm and feed'm fishheads".
