  • The governor of Arizona signed a state legislation that authorizes the use of the Mexican consular registration
  • “I am grateful for the bipartisan support for this legislation that increases public safety by offering a secure and reliable form of identification.”
  • The bipartisan legislation SB 1420 was passed and endorses the use of the license plate as a form of official identification

This Friday the governor of the state of Arizona, Doug Ducey, signed a state legislation that authorizes the use of the Mexican consular registration as an official identification, according to Efe Agency.

“I am grateful for the bipartisan support for this legislation that increases public safety by offering a secure and reliable form of identification that will be accepted in Arizona,” Ducey said in a letter sent to the secretary of Condition from Arizona.

The bipartisan legislation SB 1420 was approved a few days ago by the state legislature which endorses the use of the Mexican consular registration as a form of official identification in the state.

PREVIOUSLY FORBIDDEN

The governor with his signature reverses a legislation approved in 2011, when he prohibited the use of the consular registration as a form of identification, since at that time it was not believed to be a secure document.

The new legislation may allow migrants to use the Mexican consular registration number in order to identify themselves with local and state police departments.

In the state of Arizona, proof of citizenship or legal residence in the country is required to issue IDs and a state driver’s license, these documents cannot be obtained by the undocumented.

Even with the consular registration they can use it to open bank accounts and register their children in schools, among other benefits that they will obtain with this authorization to be able to identify themselves.

“It does not grant new rights to non-citizens”

Republican Doug Ducey stressed that this legislation “does not authorize or grant new rights to non-citizens”, but simply indicates that the state of Arizona will recognize the identifications issued by different countries that use valid biometric identification systems.

This measure can also be applied to other countries that issue consular plates that meet these requirements.

For its part, the Government of Mexico said it was very pleased with the approval of the use of the consular license plate in the state of Arizona.

In previous years, state lawmakers had tried to bring about this change, which would have been a significant step in a state known for its heavy hand against undocumented immigrants.
