Yes that is the way I do it when I travel abroad. I go to a foreign country and then get my passport and identification card that is if I can find my birth certificate. You know anything goes in the USA today as long it is PC and gets somebody a vote to continue their political career. Del Moral is correct there are ignorant U.S. citizens. Wake up Californians haven't you put up with enough?

Do these Tea Party clowns have no shame? Are they not embarrassed by their own ignorance? Will the Christian majority show up to cancel out these sorry souls?

ICE should be required to accompany the roving Mexican consul vehicles and run everyones name through to see if they are an Illegal alien.

These Tea Party people should be ashamed of their ignorance, but then that assumes they know how to check their facts.

This is Crazy. Illegal Mexicans? Can't be. Our Glorious Government would have long ago rounded them up and sent them back to the Land of their Birth.

What exactly is it that you think they have wrong? Do you have any specific information? or are you just throwing out insults?

Why don't you read what they are actually saying instead of assuming they don't know what they are talking about. Just because you don't agree with someone doesn't mean they are wrong about their facts.

FYI, they called ICE and they weren't interested. Just goes to show our government agency isn't interested in doing their primary function. Go figure.

I have to agree with the tea party on this one. Why would some foreign government give identification papers to anyone without the possibility of verifying whether their claim is authentic?

I also agree with the concept of booting any illegal aliens from our country just on general principal. They are here illegally and should not be here.

There is a process for becoming citizens, and immigrants are allowed to live here legally while they pursue getting citizenship.

A recent Study by the Mexican American Advisory Committee has found that the average illegal Mexican has completed four years of college and a year of graduate work in an accredited educational institution. These are their Best and Brightest.

Everyone should be at the protest. Isn't Mexico ashamed of their own ignorance?

I know that a lot of those that show up in the forums don't appreciate educating themselves, but for those that do, see for yourself: http://www.cis.org/MatriculaConsular-IDCards

ICE had no interest in what was going, but US Bank was there to sign folks up for bank accounts now that they have new identities. Not to mention, the ACLU was on site to take pictures of the protesters, and to make sure that no laws were enforced by the local LEOs.

To top it all off, the folks putting this on were also providing documents with modified history about why California should actually be Mexico's. Kinda throwing an excuse to make those who choose to be here illegally feel good about being pawns used in the furthering of the reconquista/Aztlan agenda.

I am curious why the MR didn't just Google Matricula Consular cards to at least educate themselves a little on the subject.
