Borders? We don't need no stinking borders...From the Washington Times:

The Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco has become the first federal facility to accept Mexican-issued ID cards, used by both legal and illegal immigrants, as valid identification.

The policy was requested by new House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat.

The building began a four-month trial program this week. Supporters say it will allow holders of the Matricula Consular card access to the building, which requires proper identification from all visitors.


Rep. Tom Tancredo has been a loely voice on these issues:

Opponents say accepting the ID cards encourages illegal immigrants to continue to break the law and creates an unsafe atmosphere.

"There is no one in the United States of America that needs a [Mexican-issued] ID card other than someone who is here illegally or someone here who is a felon," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Democrat and chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. "This is not a secure system, and even if it were a secure system, what is the responsibility of our government to accept a foreign government's card?"
