H-4410.1 _____________________________________________

HOUSE BILL 3029 _____________________________________________

State of Washington 58th Legislature 2004 Regular Session

By Representatives Fromhold, Kenney, Moeller, Quall, Lovick, Sommers, Santos, Lantz, Conway and Upthegrove

Read first time 01/26/2004. Referred to Committee on Judiciary.

AN ACT Relating to use of Mexican consular photo identification cards for identification purposes; amending RCW 46.20.035; adding a new section to chapter 46.20 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 30.04 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 30.38 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 31.12 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 31.45 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 32.04 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 35.21 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 35A.21 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 36.01 RCW; and creating new sections.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 1. The legislature finds that many ordinary activities in modern society require possession of valid photo identification. For example, valid photo identification may be necessary to receive public services such as public utilities and library access. Valid photo identification may also be necessary to conduct routine transactions with financial institutions. Law enforcement officers may require valid photo identification from victims and witnesses of crimes. The legislature finds that the Mexican government has developed a photo identification card, known as a matricula consular, for Mexican nationals residing in the United States. The matricula consular contains the holder's photo, name, United States address, and date and place of birth. Numerous security features and checks have been added to the matricula consular. Many cities, states, law enforcement agencies, and financial institutions accept the matricula consular as a valid form of identification. The legislature finds that broadened recognition of the matricula consular as a valid form of identification will serve a public purpose by promoting access to many ordinary business or government services. The legislature also finds that broadened recognition of the matricula consular as a valid form of identification will promote important law enforcement purposes by encouraging the reporting of crimes, by increasing cooperation with law enforcement, and by avoiding efforts that law enforcement would otherwise have to make to establish identity. The legislature further finds that recognition of the matricula consular for identification purposes only does not alter or affect the holder's immigration status, nor does it entitle the holder to services for which the holder is ineligible due to immigration status. Finally, the legislature encourages the government of Mexico to continue its efforts to issue secure identification to its citizens living in the United States, and to consider including additional identifying information, such as physical description, on the matricula consular.

PART I--DRIVERS' LICENSES

Sec. 2. RCW 46.20.035 and 1999 c 6 s 8 are each amended to read as follows: The department may not issue an identicard or a Washington state driver's license that is valid for identification purposes unless the applicant meets the identification requirements of subsection (1), (2), or (3) of this section. (1) A driver's license or identicard applicant must provide the department with at least one of the following pieces of valid identifying documentation that contains the signature and a photograph of the applicant: (a) A valid or recently expired driver's license or instruction permit that includes the date of birth of the applicant; (b) A Washington state identicard or an identification card issued by another state; (c) An identification card issued by the United States, a state, or an agency of either the United States or a state, of a kind commonly used to identify the members or employees of the government agency; (d) A military identification card; (e) A United States passport; or (f) An Immigration and Naturalization Service form. (2) An applicant who is a minor may establish identity by providing an affidavit of the applicant's parent or guardian. The parent or guardian must accompany the minor and display or provide: (a) At least one piece of documentation in subsection (1) of this section establishing the identity of the parent or guardian; and (b) Additional documentation establishing the relationship between the parent or guardian and the applicant. (3) A person unable to provide identifying documentation as specified in subsection (1) or (2) of this section may request that the department review other available documentation in order to ascertain identity. The department may waive the requirement if it finds that other documentation clearly establishes the identity of the applicant. {+ The department is authorized to adopt rules governing the use of the matricula consular, the identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as identifying documentation. +} (4) The form of an applicant's name, as established under this section, must be the person's name of record for the purposes of this chapter. (5) If the applicant is unable to prove his or her identity under this section, the department shall plainly label the license "not valid for identification purposes."

PART II--LAW ENFORCEMENT

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 46.20 RCW to read as follows: State and local law enforcement agencies are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification for all law enforcement purposes for which a driver's license is not legally required.

PART III--FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 30.04 RCW to read as follows: State-chartered banks are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 5. A new section is added to chapter 30.38 RCW to read as follows: Out-of-state banks and national banks are encouraged to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 6. A new section is added to chapter 31.12 RCW to read as follows: Credit unions are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification. Federal credit unions are encouraged to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 7. A new section is added to chapter 31.45 RCW to read as follows: Check cashers are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 8. A new section is added to chapter 32.04 RCW to read as follows: Mutual savings banks are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as a valid form of identification.

PART IV--PUBLIC SERVICES

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 9. A new section is added to chapter 35.21 RCW to read as follows: Cities and towns are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as valid identification for all purposes for which a driver's license is not legally required.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 10. A new section is added to chapter 35A.21 RCW to read as follows: Code cities are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as valid identification for all purposes for which a driver's license is not legally required.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 11. A new section is added to chapter 36.01 RCW to read as follows: Counties are authorized to accept the matricula consular, the photo identity card issued by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals residing in the United States, as valid identification for all purposes for which a driver's license is not legally required.

PART V--TECHNICAL PROVISIONS

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 12. As used in this act, part headings constitute no part of the law.

{+ NEW SECTION. +} Sec. 13. If any provision of this act or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the remainder of the act or the application of the provision to other persons or circumstances is not affected.

For those interested in contacting their Wash. state senator copy/paste this link: http://www.leg.wa.gov/senate/members/default.htm
I'd urge you all to call rather than email. I emailed regarding the tuition for illegals issue and only heard back from one person. Many govt. officials don't take email as seriously as they do a letter or a phone call.

Tinfoil hat on:

President Fox is supposed to visit this country in early March. California's new and improved bill to give illegals a driver's license "May be acted upon on or after March 4, 2004.

Maybe a few states want to play up Fox's visit with new benefits for his people and perhaps snag a few brownie points with their hispanic constituency.

Fellow Freepers, this is the e-mail that I sent out to a list of non-FReepers concerning the Matricula Consular:

To: Bush/Cheney'04 National
Bush/Cheney'04 Ohio
Heritage Republican Club Members
Fellow Conservatives of Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey

If you are interested in the illegal immigration debate, and the way to counter it, please read the attached link to Congressman Rohrabacher's Home page.

While at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Arlington in January I addressed the Immigration Panel concerning the Matricula Consular, and the fact that the Mexican Consulate in Detroit routinely issues these cards to Mexican Nationals without inquiring of their immigration status in the USA. This card is the subject of an article in a recent issue of the HOLA Journal, (front page of the October-November 2003 issue), and how it is a way of gaining legitimate identification.

This is an important issue in the immigration debate, and I urge you to contact the Bush/Cheney'04 campaign, your National Congressman and Senators, and your state Representative and Senators urging them to "Just Say No" to the Matricula Consular.

In God We Trust.....Semper Fi

According to the paper tonite, if this did not pass by 5pm, it is dead because the dead line for passing any bill in the house or senate was 5pm today.
I did not see this bill listed in the paper, but they do not have the lastest so will have to wait and see.

I would like to ask every one to find all the articles on immigration, illegals, go to the url, and send the whole article to every senator, rep from your area, and the President.

I always add all the newspapers, tv stations in the cc, so all of the above can see where the article is headed. lol

It will not do any good for one person to do it, we need numbers=lots of people.

I am NOT an authroity on legislative procedure. As I was driving home this afternoon I heard John Carlson on KVI with the majority leader. My understanding was that a bill had to have passed EITHER the house or the senate by today otherwise it was over for the season. Those that had passed one of the legislative houses were still in the running. Or I could have completely misunderstood the snippets of conversation I heard.


Hopefully there are enough R senators out there that will say NO to this. Unfortunately I'm represented by a D who votes strictly party lines and will vote Yea on this one:(

The matricula consular contains the holder's photo, name, United States address, and date and place of birth.

All we can be sure of is that a matricula consular card contains someone's photo, name, United States address, and date and place of birth. Since many Mexicans use fake documents to apply for the matricula consular card, the information on the card may not relate to the holder of the card.

Numerous security features and checks have been added to the matricula consular.

These security features and checks are pointless if we can't verify the information on the card.

ok this is what they said
But even death to a bill by the deadline could lurch back to life like the villain in a scarey movie, if the right deal is struck. Any bill can be revived at any time if it is deemed necessary to implememnt the budget.{I cannot see how the id card would implement the budget} Dead bills could also be reincarnated as amendments to related measures

All my bills are dead but my hopes are still alive, said senate minority leader Lisa Brown, D Spokane

On the other hand many bills that survived the cutoff deadline may look alive, but they are really dead bills walking because there is no chance the other chamber will pass them.

One example is the senate R bill to freeze the minimum wage during periods of high unemployment-fated for deep freeze in the house. Like wise the house D plan to authorize prescripton drugs purchases from Canada will meet a silent and swift death in the Senate.

These are not my words, they are the reportors. lol

The illegal bill got about 15 seconds at the end of Carlson's interview with Finkbeiner, when Carlson brought it up himself. The bill has moved on to the senate. At first Finkbeiner said he didn't think it would pass, but then he said well, it hasn't had any hearings yet, don't know. So, it's up to us to call and write. Don't know if you heard the beginning of the show, but Finkbeiner praised Carlson listeners for getting another piece of legislation killed by calling their senators in Olympia. So if it can be done once we can do it again if enough people call or write.

As PART III-FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS has obviously been meticulously researched and provided for, you only have to look to the financial industry of Washington State for the primary villains of this outrage. What a shame those same industries make so many campaign contributions.

This is happening state-by-state, BTW.

"PROPOSAL:

"

Yes, I agree, that is how it should be. I have a washington drivers license, but if I go to another state I should have to provide say, my passport and a notarized birth certificate as ID. Will it inconvenience me? Sure, but if our legislature wants to violate federal law so it can feel "good" about supporting "diversity" and "multiculturalism" and not "discriminating" against "willing workers" who lack "documentation", then we should pay the price. And that means all of us. So if the one of these feel good legislators gets pulled over while on state business in Hawaii, or Las Vegas they better have more than a Washington DL, or they are in trouble.
