MEXICO: Illegal immigration to the US

Raúl Escalante criticizes the Center for Immigration Studies: "For the record: the "Matrícula Consular" was being issued to Mexican citizens in the US long before my father was consul in Sacramento (1986). In this context, the CIS' bulletin seems slightly less than completely objective, and casts serious doubts on the Center's academic credibility". RH:The mass issuance of consular identity cards is a recent phenomenon. The Center is generally respected. It publishes scholarly studies, and I know of no comparable organization.
