Dear Editor:
It has been reported that the City of Holland, Michigan is the latest jurisdiction to have rejected demands by the Mexican government that the matricula consular card be accepted for identification purposes. A factor in the decision to reject the card appears to be a letter from FAIR submitted to the City Council and City Attorney prior to their decision. FAIR's arguments that acceptance of the card as a stand-alone document is illegal, unconstitutional, and subjects local government officials and employees to personal criminal and civil liability appear to have had a sobering effect in other jurisdictions as well. I've attached the text of our comments for your subscribers who share our concerns about the threat that the actions of the Mexican government poses to the the rule of law in this country. As we expect the matricula controversy to become the subject of litigation, comments or critiques of FAIR's analysis from your professional readership would be welcomed.
