Consulate Invades Memphis

The Mexican Consulate in Atlanta is sending a mobile office to Memphis Saturday, March 10, 2007 to distribute matricula consular cards used as identification for opening bank accounts and obtaining credit cards. Blackburn introduced legislation earlier this week to close what she considers a loophole in banking regulations that permit banks to use these matricula consular cards. Hat tip A.C.

Marsha Blackburn’s new bill says, “It says to banks and illegal immigrants alike, ‘You can’t get a Visa, without a visa.'”

Can you believe the boldness, the pure in-your-face arrogance of the Mexicans? But it’s not just the Mexicans, it’s the Americans like Bank of America. Here’s one fine example:

Those concerned about sovereignty and the rule of law need to stand behind Ms. Blackburn’s efforts.That’s what one prominent Memphis businesswoman decided to do:

Germantown business owner C.J. Phillips-Young, 59, called The Commercial Appeal on Thursday to say she took part. She said the branch manager at the Bank of America at Poplar and Shady Grove took her into a private office and asked her what it would take for her to not close her accounts. Phillips-Young said it would take a pledge that the bank would stop issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants. In reply, she said the branch manager handed her a cashier’s check for the balance in her accounts. (Memphis Commercial Appeal)

It’s not just the Mexican government displaying a kind of arrogance that says, “you can’t fight us”, our own banks are party to it. To maintain her ethical stand Ms. Phillips-Young may one day be left with burying her savings in mason jars in the backyard if more of us don’t join her in protest. (Fore-Left)

“Our preference would be to see the Mexican government join us in securing our borders and protecting the sovereignty of our two nations,” Blackburn said in a prepared statement Thursday evening.”Instead, the Mexican government continues to encourage illegal immigration and thumbing their collective noses at the rule of U.S. law by passing out these matricular cards. Legal immigrants don’t need the matricular card, only illegals do. By issuing these cards, on U.S. soil and in broad daylight, the Mexican Consulate shows no remorse in encouraging illegals to break the law.” (source)

If you live in Memphis, go out to Hickory Hills and voice your distaste for this. If not, inform your own bank you will no longer do business with them if they continue in this path. Also look for the Mexican consulate in YOUR town.
