Mexican IDs.... Unsettling info from the letters-to-the-editor section of the Washington Times, this from reader Yeh Ling-Ling:

The article "Mexico gives IDs to illegal aliens" (Page 1, Tuesday) should encourage Americans to question why Mexico is actively pushing for the acceptance of Mexican ID cards in many states besides pushing for amnesty and government benefits for illegal Mexican immigrants and for more guest-worker programs. A Zogby poll in June showed that 58 percent of Mexicans believe the U.S. Southwest rightfully belongs to them and that 57 percent of Mexicans do not believe they need U.S. permission to enter this country.


That may be true, though Zogby is being criticized for deciding the outcome of a poll before actually polling. The letter continues:

Not surprisingly, in 1997, Ernesto Zedillo, then president of Mexico, told the National Council of La Raza in Chicago that the "Mexican nation extends beyond its territories enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important, a very important, part of it." In 1995, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros told a Hispanic audience: "As goes the Latino population will go the state of California, and as goes the state of California will go the United States of America. My friends, the stakes are big. This is a fight worth making."...


Sounds like Richardson.
