Mexican Consulate to issue official documents in rural NC

Both the Mexican Consulate in Raleigh, NC and St. Brendan's Catholic Parish in Shallotte, NC have announced that Mexican officials will be at St. Brendan's this Saturday, 14 Aug, 2010 to issue Mexican Passports and Matrícula Consular I.D. Cards.

In a telephone interview with the pastor of St. Brendan's, Fr. Robert Ippolito, he did verify that his parish would be "hosting" the event this Saturday.

Ippolito likened the visit to an American Consulate in Mexico issuing documentation to Americans in Mexico.

The Question Of Matrícula Consular I.D. Cards

When asked if the Matrícula Consular I.D. Cards would assist those in this country illegally in obtaining a driver's license he stated "How couldn help them in getting a driver's license? You have to have a Social Security Number first."

According to the current North Carolina Dept. of Transportation website, a Matrícula Consular Card is one of the acceptable forms of documentation to receive a NC State Driver's License.

Also, according to the current North Carolina State Board of Elections website, once any given individual has been issued a valid driver's license, that very same license can be used as an acceptable form of identification to register to vote at a One-Stop Absentee Site.

Si si, Y'all!

This is the result of the UCCB AmChurch bishops playing politics instead of religion.

Cavey,

You are right to raise concerns. Something just doesn't sit right with this. What is their reason for saying there is even a need for doing it?

Thanks for the report. I was talking with someone via e-mail about this very issue today. At my blogsite, I didn't discuss immigration per se, but I did discuss the baloney that this false gospel of social justice and peace at any price represents.

Until that baloney gets purged from the Church in America, we are going to continue to have Mexican consulate officials doing official duties at Catholic Churches in the US. Since when is Caesar - any country's Caesar - allowed to come into Church with authority? Whatever happened to "render unto God what is God's and unto Caesar what is Caesar's"?

St. Brendan's has at least tacit approval if nothing else.
