When I read this story I was drinking a glass of grape juice and almost chocked on it! The Mexican government is opening a satellite consular office on Catalina Island -- a small resort off the California coast with a history of drug smuggling and human trafficking -- to provide the island's illegal Mexican immigrants with identification cards.
The Mexican consular office in Los Angeles issued a flier listing the Catalina Island Country Club as the location of its satellite office. It invites Mexicans in this country illegally to visit the office to obtain the identification, called matricular cards, by appointment. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican whose district includes Catalina Island, said "Handing out matricular cards to Mexicans who are not in this country legally is wrong no matter where it's done,". "But on Catalina it will do more damage. It's a small island but there's evidence it's being used as a portal for illegals to access mainland California."
Rohrabacher added, "If there were a large number of Americans illegally in Mexico and the U.S. consulate was making it easier for them to stay, Mexico would never permit it." And naturally Mexican officials with the consular office in Los Angeles could not be reached immediately for comment. The matricular consular identification card, is issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing outside the country, regardless of immigration status. How convenient! The purpose is to provide identification for opening bank accounts and obtaining other services like a legal citizen of the country. But the cards are usually used to skirt U.S. immigration laws, since Mexicans in the country legally have documents proving that status, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said.

So how in the heck can the Mexican Government get away with this crime on American soil? I know that the Bible says that if our enemy strikes our cheek, we are to offer up our other cheek for a slap. But I'm running out of places on my face to get slapped! Will someone explain this lunacy to me? PLEASE!!
