The Mexican Consulate’s Mobile Matricula Consular ID Center on US School Stopped by the Minutemen

The Santa Ana, CA, Mexican Consulate setup a illegal mobile Mexican Matricula Consular ID center on UNITED STATES PUBLIC SCHOOL PROPERTY- Capistrano School District at the Adult English Language Development Center located at 31351 Camino Real, San Juan Capistrano, CA.
The fee is $27 per matricula consular application.
The Mexican Matricula Consular ID card is an ID card issued to Mexican foreign nationals in the United States. The matricula consular is useful in the United States only for illegal aliens, because legal immigrants by definition have legal U.S. government-issued documents.

After 9/11, the Mexican Government realized that they could not gain another U.S. amnesty for illegal aliens. Instead, they launched a lobbying campaign to gain acceptance of the ID at state and local levels and from U.S. banks. U.S. Congressman Tom Tancredo said, “The only people who benefit from having such an ID are those who have come illegally and have broken our laws.” This ID card is essentially a back door attempt at a stealth amnesty and a direct challenge to the jurisdiction of Congress over U.S. immigration policy. Roberto Rodriguez Hernandez, director of the Mexican card program was quoted as saying “It’s necessary to push the need for an amnesty at all levels.”
The matricula card is not a secure document (the Matricula Cards on this page are of American citizens). Mexico does not authenticate documents used to obtain the ID against computerized data files in Mexico. No major bank in Mexico accepts the card to open an account and the cards are recognized as IDs in only 10 of Mexico’s 32 states and districts.
Now, Guatemala, Honduras, Poland, Peru and El Salvador, aware of Mexico’s success, have begun or are considering issuing cards of their own.
City liability insurance companies almost certainly won’t cover liability associated with accepting such a card, since it is a violation of Federal law to accept the card. So if a city accepts the card and a citizen is injured by an illegal alien, the citizen could likely sue individual city council members for their personal assets and life savings.
Specifically, a state or local government official or employee who provides any benefit or service to such a presenter possesses the criminal intent (mens rea) necessary for a felony indictment under Section 274 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which provides criminal penalties for any act that “encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.”

In rides our Minutemen to the rescue. When the Minutemen arrived at the Capistrano School District Adult School there was a hub of activity. A mobile Mexican Consulate center was in full swing.Legal resident Mexicans have U.S. issued green cards, for identification, matricula consular card.Mexican Consulate Mobile Matricula Consular Center

Mexican Nationals in the U.S. ILLEGALLY do NOT have a green card and therefore need a Mexican matricula consular identification card – matricula means: of a like group and consular means: from a consulate.

After the Minutemen had been onsite for about an hour and a half, the mobile center was shut down – above photo.
Once Minutemen began to observe and report, documenting and photographing. The Mexican Nationals no longer ventured forth to the center and many, who had been in attendance, left the mobile center.

The Mexican diplomat repeatedly said, ‘This a private event for Mexicans only …. You cannot be here . I am telling you nicely as I do not want to call the police. Please leave
Minutemen assembled on U.S. school property.
Minuteman Project National Rally Spokesman Raymond Herrera said to the Mexican diplomat, ‘No, we will not leave. We are guaranteed freedom of assembly under OUR Constitution.’
I said to the diplomat, ‘The U.S. should adopt Mexico’s immigration policy.’
‘Oh,’ she agreed. ‘Mexico has a very good immigration policy.’

The Mexican diplomat was particularly vexed by our photographing of the event. ’ DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS,’ she commanded repeatedly.?
Minutemen stated that in the USA, we have the right to photograph in public. ‘No, you cannot take photos,’ she insisted. Herrera and the diplomat then entered into a lengthy discussion in Spanish.
GANG MEMBER with application in hand
The man, above photo, displayed gang hand signals and yelled out ‘THIS IS OUR TERRITORY!’ The Mexican diplomat witnessed and seemingly approved of the gang member at the ‘Mexican Only’ event. He appeared to be filling out an application – in his left hand above. Many have informally been told that in the Hispanic community only gang members wear black shoes. Note in the photo above, the only man in black shoes is the self-professed gang member.The Minutewoman, above, had been quietly photographing.Mexican Diplomat has a matricula consular card in her hand. Suddenly the door above opened, and the Mexican diplomat, came out yelling. The photo above is just before she lashed out. To our utter amazement, the diplomat started to strike out at the Minutewoman! We were in a state of shock. As she yelled, she struck across the Minutewoman’s lower right jaw and lip, several times.
The Minutewoman above, in her left hand,used her sign as a shield, while pulling her camera back from the assaulting Mexican diplomat. Ten minutes after the assault the Minutewoman still had a ’stinging’ sensation on her lip and jaw area.

Police arrived after the assault. The police said they had been called by the consulate as they had reported that the Minutemen were inside the building yelling and pushing about. We never entered the building and had been quietly moving outside, on school property.The police said they had been called by the consulate as they had reported that the Minutemen were inside the building yelling and pushing about.

Herrera spoke with officers then requested they interview the diplomat.
Per the officer’s request, the diplomat came forward.‘They must leave,’ she said to the officer. But the officer replied, ‘No, this is a public school and they can be here.’
The diplomat then said that we must stop photographing them. ‘Ma’am,’ the officer informed her, ‘You are in a public area and they can photograph.’

The officer then asked her, ‘Do you have the paperwork to use this facility.’
‘Yes,’ she replied.
‘I would like to see it,’ the officer said,

‘I don’t have the paperwork with me,’ she said back to him.
I would like to see your identification, ‘ the officer said.
‘No, you can’t,’ she said to the officer. The officer at this point followed her inside of the building.
‘I have no identification with me. I did not drive,’she finally said as the officer pursued the issue. At this point, the door shut and the officer remained inside After the officer spoke with the diplomat, he returned to his vehicle and spoke on his cell phone for about 15 to 20 minutes.
After he hung up, he met with us. He said the consulate did not have paperwork but that he had spoken to the individual who had granted the use of the school. He said that we could continue to assemble on the school property.
He appeared sympathetic about the Minutewoman assault, but said the Mexican Consulate staff had diplomatic immunity.
