    Open Letter to Secretary of State Rice-RE:Mexican Consulates

    Open Letter to Secretary of State Rice
    April 21, 2008 05:04 PM EST

    Secretary Rice, as a citizen of Idaho, I am asking you to intervene at the Department of State and deny the Mexican government permission to site the 48th Mexican Consulate in our state. As a citizen of the United States, I am asking you to uphold Article 55 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

    Article 55 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations

    RESPECT FOR THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF THE RECEIVING STATE

    1. Without prejudice to their privileges and immunities, it is the duty of all persons [consul personnel] enjoying such privileges to respect the laws and regulations of the receiving state. They also have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of the State. (1)

    Heather McDonald, writing for the Manhattan Institute’s magazine, the City Journal, describes the activities of the consulates, “Mexican consulates are engineering a back door amnesty for their illegal migrants and trying to discredit American immigration enforcement—activities clearly beyond diplomatic bounds.

    Excellent letter.

    Mexican consulates also issue Mexican passports to illegal immigrants here in the U.S. Passports are suppose to be issued before one leaves their home country. A passport allows illegal immigrants to fly on planes.

    Acceptable forms of ID for passengers, as described by our Transportation Security Administration (TSA) friends, include:


    18 and older - Official photo ID issued by a government authority, or two forms of ID, one of which must be issued by a government authority.

    Children ages 12 to 17 traveling alone will need one of the following - Official photo ID issued by a government authority, or two forms of ID, one of which must be issued by a government authority, or, be accompanied by an adult with appropriate ID.
    A gate pass will be issued at the ticket counter to customers meeting or assisting unaccompanied minors and passengers with special needs. Please contact our Reservations Department to determine the gate pass restrictions for the city of your choice.

    Great letter! Let's see if Rice will respond in any sort of positive way.

    I think we should have the Immigration Reform Caucus led by Congressman Brian Bilbray...send a copy of this letter or something similar to Secretary Rice demanding (like the Congressional Hispanic Caucus seems to always do) that the Mexican Consulates be reprimanded and a cease and desist order put in place regarding any further issuance of Matriculas, etc. .
