As the tentacles of the Mexican Consulate spread across America—bringing the foreign matricula consular identity document and with it bank accounts and even driver's licenses to thousands of illegally-resettled Mexicans—the recent visit of Mexican President Vicente Fox to Minneapolis, Minnesota, shows just how blatant the subversion of U.S. immigration law has become.
The complicity of big banking and the Treason Lobby in Mexican foreign policy goals is even more outrageous.
The case study of Minneapolis—some 1,400 miles from Mexico—leaves no doubt of the concerted effort to install as many Mexican illegal aliens as possible in the United States…from sea to shining sea.
A VDARE.com reader has pointed out to me two revealing regional newspaper articles that unmasked the players in the Minneapolis matricula plot.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune reports:
"Signaling the importance of the cash flow to his nation, Fox has set aside as much as an hour in his short visit today for a private meeting in the St. Paul Radisson Riverfront hotel with top executives from Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, Citibank and Bank of America, according to bank and city officials. The meeting is expected to include discussions on ways to transfer money more efficiently." ["Cash flow to Mexico is a focus for Fox," by Pat Doyle, Minneapolis-St. Paul (MN) Star Tribune, June 18, 2004.]
The Faribault (MN) Daily News offers the second piece of the puzzle:
"According to Kathryn Gilje, of Centro Campesino in Owatonna, another important service offered in the ["advocacy" group's] Montgomery office this year comes about because of the Mexican Consulate's visit to Owatonna next month. Centro Campesino, along with Wells Fargo Bank, are co-sponsoring the consulate's mobile unit there from July 14-17." "Campesino now open in Montgomery," by Pauline Schreiber, Faribault (MN) Daily News, June 19, 2004]
Our astute reader comments via e-mail about matriculas in rural Owatonna:
"This is a little town in southern Minnesota! President Fox's influence is everywhere, and our greedy corporations and politicians are just bowing down to his every demand. He has also demanded a new Mexican Consulate in St. Paul on his June 18 visit which he's of course getting."
Just think . . . a mobile Mexican Consulate sponsored by Wells Fargo bank and a Treason Lobby front group, bringing unverifiable foreign identity documents to illegal aliens in Minnesota, so the bank can get more accounts.
Ain't that America!
Unfortunately, news like this is commonplace in the New America. You can find an entire archive chock-full of similar reports in the Sham Mexican ID section of Glenn Spencer's invaluable American Patrol Report.
In keeping tabs on the spread of the Mexican matricula, American Patrol also reports as follows:
So let's take a little trip on the Minneapolis matricula money trail with Centro Campesino.
As an outpost of the Treason Lobby, Centro Campesino of Owatonna has been honored as "a grass-roots, membership organization with 550 members" serving "the migrant agricultural worker communities and year-round Latino residents in South Central Minnesota" with a stated purpose to "work together with the diverse cultures of Southern Minnesota to better understand one another and create a multicultural community."
Centro Campesino received funds from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, which announces [PDF] that "[s]ince 2001 CCHD has awarded annual organizing grants to Centro Campesino, enabling its 800 members to receive training, leadership development and organizing skills."
Centro Campesino received $10,000 in 2002 from the Grotto Foundation.
Centro Campesino picked a fight with a local Chiquita processing plant on behalf of its workers sometime in 2001. This "lucha" [Spanish for fight] was quickly picked up by the League of Revolutionaries for a New America and its "People's Tribune" (Tribunal del Pueblo) online edition.
The League of Revolutionaries for a New America wears its Marxism on its sleeve, of course, describing its activities as follows:
"The mission of Rally, Comrades! [the League's website] is to disseminate an objective estimate of the current situation, the questions of the day and the developing class struggle, and an understanding of the line of march of the revolutionary process. It is a vehicle to reach and communicate with other revolutionaries, to engage them in debate and discussion, and to provide a forum for that debate."
So while Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty toasts with Vicente Fox, and the mega-banks vie for new clients, the subversion of American sovereignty rolls on.
So to answer the question recently posed by D.A. King – Can Banks Profiteer From Illegal Immigration with Impunity? –
The answer: you bet!
