    Illegal aliens can now get Mexican birth certificates in U.S.

    Immigrants can now get Mexican birth certificates in U.S.

    SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — The Mexican government on Thursday will start issuing birth certificates to its citizens at consulates in the United States, seeking to make it easier for them to apply for U.S. work permits, driver's licenses and protection from deportation.

    Until now, Mexico has required citizens to get birth certificates at government offices in Mexico. Many of those living in the U.S. ask friends and relatives back home to retrieve them, which can delay their applications for immigration or other programs.


    Now, even as Republicans in Congress try to quash President Barack Obama's reprieve to millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S., Mexico is trying to help them apply for programs that would allow them to remain temporarily in the country and continue sending money back to relatives across the border.


    "It is a huge help. It helps individuals really begin to formulate their formal identity in this country," said Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.


    About half of the 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally are from Mexico, and immigration experts estimate that roughly 3 million Mexicans could be eligible to apply for work permits and protection from deportation under the administration's plan.


    About two weeks ago, California — which is home to more Mexicans than any other state — began issuing driver's licenses to immigrants in the country illegally.


    Starting Thursday, the country's 50 consulates in the United States will be able to access data maintained by regional governments in Mexico and print birth certificates at the consulates, said Arturo Sanchez, consul for press and commercial affairs in Santa Ana, California.


    Consulates should be able to issue birth certificates for nearly all birthplaces in Mexico, but some rural villages where documents are not digitally recorded may not be covered, Sanchez said.


    Over the past year, the Santa Ana consulate has seen a surge in the demand for documents. Daily appointments have jumped by a third to nearly 400, with many people trying to get birth certificates, Sanchez said.


    Mexican immigrants usually seek birth certificates to obtain a passport or consular identification card so they can then apply for a driver's license or immigration relief, he said.


    In California, Mexican consular officials have supported the rollout of the new driver's license program, holding information sessions and offering test preparation classes to help immigrants pass the written test required to get a license.


    Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said she believes Mexico is trying to make it easier for its citizens to stay here because of the money they send across the border.


    Mexican migrant workers, many who live in the United States, sent home $21.6 billion to their families in 2013, according to the country's central bank.


    Vaughan, whose organization advocates for tighter limits on immigration, said the integrity of birth certificates is critical because they are used to issue key identity documents like passports.


    "If we can trust the Mexican government to do its due diligence and establish a system with integrity, then this will work and it is up to us to make sure we are communicating with them about what we need to see in terms of integrity," she said.

    "That is a big if."

    They have always been able to get a Mexican birth certificate in the U.S.
    Just meet the guy in the taco shop parking lot.
    Give him the name, date of birth and city you want on it and he will call you when it's ready to be picked up.

    These "documents" rank right up there with those Matricula Consular toilet tissues. Three of the largest banks in Mexico wouldn't accept those bowel movement wipes as acceptable I.D. for opening a bank account, because of the ease with which they could be fraudulent. Now, if Mexican criminals and degenerates want to re-invent themselves, all they have to do is go to their own consulate. Yikes.

    Of course this is the reason...as many say 'just follow the money.'

    It makes my blood boil to see them labeled as "migrant workers", as if they're all in the fields "doing jobs American's won't do".
    The truth is that less than 5% of them work in agriculture. The rest have decimated industries that Americans used to work in for a decent wage.
    This intentionally propagates the myth that most illegals are field workers. FAR FROM THE TRUTH, but they never want this info to be common knowledge amongst the general American populace!

    This isn't real, this isn't real... someone please wake me up from this nightmare. How are so many Americans allowing themselves to be duped? HOW is Obama getting away with his dictatorial decrees? HOW did the Republican party pansy-up so quickly? This is a travesty.

    Yes, it is definitely a travesty, one of the saddest most inexcusable sell-outs of a people and nation by its own politicians and government officials in the history of the world. To my knowledge, no other nation has ever been intentionally and willfully degraded by its own government to accommodate foreign interests. What is happening to the United States is a phenomena the world will long remember and one Americans will never forget nor forgive.
