This is a screen grab from Page 19 of the NC DMV Drivers Handbook. The Idiots at DMV have already approved this highly insecure document.
After we put the Durham City council in checkmate on Monday evening, I believe it’s time to focus some attention on the officials at DMV.

Sample of a Mexico Matricula Consular ID Card
The Durham, NC City Council is scheduled to vote on approving the use of Mexican Matricula Consular ID Cards. In a nutshell, these ID Cards are issued to Illegal Immigrants. This vote will take place on Monday November 15, 2010. One week from the date of this posting!
Here is the news story posted on Saturday night, 11/6/10, at approximately 9:00 pm.
Durham is the first North Carolina jurisdiction where authorities have been formally asked to recognize the Matricula Consular. Clement wanted to know why, since Flores’s office is in Raleigh. Flores said it was because groups in Durham were already working on approval when he began his job a year ago.
Deputy Police Chief Steve Mihaich said the department would accept the Matricula Consular as it would any other out-of-state ID.

Diane Catotti’s statement from the above mentioned story:
“I’m very proud that you started here,” said Councilwoman Diane Catotti. “We have a very active El Centro Hispano and Hispanic community.”
Here is another story via the Durham Herald Sun Paper
Here is a link to the FBI’s Report to the House Judiciary Sub-Committee on the Matricula Consular ID Card.
Exert from this link:
The U.S. Government has done an extensive amount of research on the Matricula Consular, to assess its viability as a reliable means of identification. The Department of Justice and the FBI have concluded that the Matricula Consular is not a reliable form of identification, due to the non-existence of any means of verifying the true identity of the card holder.
To provide my readers with thorough information, here is the 287(g) MOA agreement between ICE and the Durham, NC Police Department.
Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with what exactly a “Matricula Consular ID Card” is, please click HERE.
Here are a few key points….
The Mexican Matricula Consular ID card is an ID card issued to Mexican foreign nationals in the United States. The matricula consular is useful in the United States only for illegal aliens, because legal immigrants by definition have legal U.S. government-issued documents.
After 9/11, the Mexican Government realized that they could not gain another U.S. amnesty for illegal aliens. Instead, they launched a lobbying campaign to gain acceptance of the ID at state and local levels and from U.S. banks.
The matricula card is not a secure document. Mexico does not authenticate documents used to obtain the ID against computerized data files in Mexico. No major bank in Mexico accepts the card to open an account and the cards are recognized as IDs in only 10 of Mexico’s 32 states and districts.City liability insurance companies almost certainly won’t cover liability associated with accepting such a card, since it is a violation of Federal law to accept the card. So if a city accepts the card and a citizen is injured by an illegal alien, the citizen could likely sue individual city council members for their personal assets and life savings.
Specifically, a state or local government official or employee who provides any benefit or service to such a presenter possesses the criminal intent (mens rea) necessary for a felony indictment under Section 274 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which provides criminal penalties for any act that “encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.”
Here is the text of the actual resolution being considered by the Durham City Council.
RESOLUTION SUPPORTING RECOGNITION OF THE MATRICULA CONSULAR AS A VALID FORM OF IDENTIFICATION
Whereas, the City of Durham respects and promotes the right of all of its residents to equal treatment under the law; and
Whereas, many immigrants who could have obtained a driver’s license by using a tax ID number prior to 2005 are no longer able to do so now that current law requires a social security number; and
Whereas, if a Durham city law enforcement official discovers that a driver is not carrying a license when making a traffic stop for a minor violation such as speeding or not fully stopping for a stop sign, the officer would typically issue a citation rather than making an arrest, provided a) there are no indications of criminal activity or driving under the influence, and b) the driver has a valid ID card; and
Whereas, the Mexican Matricula Consular has been shown to be a highly secure form of identification, issued to Mexican citizens living in other countries and containing several levels of machine-readable verification; and
Whereas, acceptance of the Matricula Consular as a valid form of ID would not only assist in minimizing unnecessary and potentially life-changing arrests of hard-working residents guilty of no more than a minor traffic infraction, but would also be useful for banking, library, and other civil functions;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Durham hereby formally supports recognition of a properly issued and obtained Mexican Matricula Consular as a valid form of identification, not substituting for a driver’s license, but authenticating a person’s identity, and, with regard to activities of the Durham Police Department, supports issuance of a citation to persons showing such identification in situations where a citation would be issued to any driver lacking a license but with another valid form of identification, while leaving discretion to the officer as to whether to arrest.
This Resolution is effective upon adoption.
