NC Listen is reporting that the Mexican consulate’s mobile unit is going to be on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College issuing matricula consulars (Mexican IDs) to illegal aliens on Saturday, June 28, 2008.
Read the press release:
North Carolina Community College system, was sent a letter by NC LISTEN to
inform them that the Latino Advocacy Coalition of Henderson County was renting a
state building on their community college campus for purposes of inviting
Mexican Consulate officials to provide and assist illegal immigrants with
Consular Matricula ID cards. The event scheduled [and predominantly advertised
in Spanish] for this Saturday 28 June at the Thomas Auditorium Gallery at Blue
Ridge Community College [8am to 9pm] will also provide recommendations and other
information to illegal immigrants and foreign nationals. Foreign government
officials should not be using our state government buildings for purposes of
issuing foreign ID cards that have the primary purpose of being used by illegal
immigrants to open bank accounts, etc. Our federal government does not
accept Consular Matricular cards for ID purposes and the FBI has stated they are
unreliable as an ID and can be easily forged.
stopped and will be allowed to take place on their campus. Even though foreign
government officials from Mexico and illegal immigrants will be there as noted
above, Blue Ridge Community College through their PR person [Ms. LeeAnna Haney]
has pointed out the event is not open to the general public and furthermore
citizens with interest are advised not to come-on campus during the event. Ms.
Haney can be reached at (828) 694-1885. I expect citizens and the media should
decide for themselves whether they can attend or not, and whether to videotape
what they observe. Further actions will take place due to this
organization involved in immigration reform.
