Sali: Mexican Consolate In Idaho Could Aid Illegals

The planned opening of a Mexican consulate office in Boise is causing serious concerns for many Idahoans. Other Mexican consulates provide services that help illegal immigrants evade U.S. law and gain access to services at taxpayer expense. Idahoans expect a consulate in our state will do the same. I think they are right. But editorial writer Tom Henderson laughed off my comments as nothing more than rumor mongering and paranoia [editorial, March 15]. He is wrong to be so sarcastic and dismissive. Readers of the Lewiston Tribune deserve better/U.S. Rep. Bill Sali, Lewiston Tribune. More here

IMHO Roundup:
*Floating home owners but prisoners of marinas/Tom Henderson, Lewiston Tribune
*To prevent murders hospitalize psychotics/Clayton Cramer, Idaho Statesman
*Admiration, pity rolled into one/Dan Hammes, St. Maries Gazette-Record

Question: Does Congressman Sali have a legitimate concern -- that the presence of a Mexican consulate in Boise would aid illegal immigrants?
