Dear Editor:
And why are the banks Dr. Baer speaks of apparently willing to do this without themselves being lobbied by Mexico? Because the Mexican consuls have already successfully lobbied a number of the largest banks and immigrant heavy cities, and are using that to get others on board. Mexico's stated aim is to "eat the elephant" one piece at a time, i.e. get amnesty by getting local acceptance of their ID. The consuls and President Fox have made no secret of their activities and why they're doing them--why should Dr. Baer object to calling them what they are, lobbying? The fact is, our immigration policy is already run by vested interests: agribusiness, ethnic political groups, labor unions, and now foreign governments, who want remittances and power over our foreign policy, and banks, who see a tremendous market in banking the unbanked, largely illegal immigrants. I can't help wonder when the safety and well-being of the American people are going to be the first priority in setting immigration policy--not somebody's bottom line.
