1 million already distributed Matricula consular cards are being doled out by the Mexican government at $25 a pop and are good for five years. All a Mexican national needs is a birth certificate and a photo ID issued either in the United States or Mexico, and he or she can use the card to obtain social services in the United States, open bank or utility accounts and obtain building permits. Krikorian and Dinerstein said the documents used by Mexicans to get the cards are frequently not verified by officials and safeguards are not in place to prevent multiple cards from being used by the same person. The report also states that the Mexican government has no secure computer system in place to track Mexican nationals and suggests Mexican illegals may try to use the cards to evade arrest, jail and deportation. Is Bush CRAZY?? This is a most rediculous and dangerous practice not to mention unfair to those of us who are working our butts off having to pay for "social services" that these people can get. Does he really believe that there could be any kind of control over these cards?
