      IMPORTANT: PLEASE REMEMBER TO SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS TO TREASURY RE:
      whether
      it should change its regulations permitting banks to accept consular
      identification cards. DEADLINE IS THIS THUR, July 31ST.

      Treasury has asked for comments in a highly unusual manner that amounts
      to a
      type of referendum, including a click-on yes or no vote. Treasury is
      accepting comments from individual members of the public, so please
      encourage any constituents or members to submit comments. Please
      distribute
      this notice as widely as possible. PLEASE VOTE NO.  A "NO" VOTE MEANS THAT YOU
      BELIEVE BANKS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ACCEPT CONSULAR IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENTS
      SUCH AS THE MATRICULA CONSULAR AS IDENTIFICATION.

      If you and your co-workers have already voted, thank you! If not, there
      are
      you have till this Thursday 7/31!

      You can vote and submit as little as one sentence, such as "I oppose any
      efforts to prevent banks from accepting consular identification
      documents."
      If you would like more information about this issue, check the National
      Immigration Law Center website at www.NILC.org.

      Anti-immigrant organizations are activating their base to vote on this
      issue, and failure of immigrants and their allies to match their numbers
      could well be interpreted by Congress and the Administration as a
      mandate
      for restricting the issuance and use of consular identification cards.

      You can also go directly to the following link to vote and submit
      comments
      on the Treasury regulations:
