    Chicago OKs Use of Mexico ID Cards
    ASSOCIATED PRESS


    CHICAGO- The City Council has approved use of identification cards issued by the Mexican consulate that supporters say will give undocumented immigrants better access to financial and public services.

    With Wednesday's vote, Chicago joins a small but growing number of major cities, including Los Angeles, to validate the ID cards. The cards allow bearers to open bank accounts, borrow library books and use other services.

    "Our economy couldn't exist without the hardworking Mexican nationals who come here," said Alderman Edward Burke, who introduced the ordinance.

    Critics say recognizing the cards amounts to the city's sanctioning illegal immigration.

    "They are breaking the law by being here," said Dan Stein, executive director of the Washington-based Federation for American Immigrant Reform. "And the city is helping them break the law."

    I agree with this!

    Let them use the cards for whatever they want, make a note then call the INS and give them that bus ticket!
