Thanks, Bush

On October 26, 2001, President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act. Most people are unaware that contained in section 326(b) of the USA Patriot Act is a provision that allows US banks to accept Mexican Matricula Consular cards (MCCs) as a valid form of ID for opening bank accounts.

Congress ordered American banks to recognize these Mexican-issued cards. However, there is not one Mexican bank which accepts their own government’s Matricula Consular card as a valid form of ID, because the bearer’s identity is basically untraceable.

In fact, members of the House Judiciary Committee confirmed that Mexican banks do not even accept Matricula Consular cards as valid identification.
