               STATE DEPARTMENT IS AIDING ILLEGAL ALIENS

  (Mr. TANCREDO asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. TANCREDO. Mr. Speaker, it is not bad enough that foreign 
governments are brazenly distributing identification documents to their 
nationals in order to make it easier for them to violate our 
immigration laws, it now appears that our government is aiding in the 
effort.
  Perhaps I am a bit inaccurate in referring to the State Department as 
``our government.'' Anyone who has been around here any length of time 
knows that the State Department operates as a separate entity with its 
own agenda and set of rules and are often unconnected to the wishes of 
the administration and are often disdainful of any congressional input 
except when they are up here asking for money.
  Recently a memo came into our possession, which emanated from our 
Embassy in Managua and was sent to Secretary Powell. It was asking for 
directions in the task of helping the government of Nicaragua create 
these ID cards to distribute to Nicaraguan nationals living illegally 
in the United States. They want to do this so that these illegal aliens 
can more easily obtain benefits, get breeder documents, and generally 
live here undisturbed while they violate our laws.
  You got it. That is our government in league with a foreign 
government as they aid and abet their illegal aliens living in the 
United States.
  Beam me up, as our friend used to say, Mr. Speaker, beam me up.
