Mexican Identification Cards Issued In Longview

An East Texas police department is preparing to accept I.D.'s from Mexico. "Mexican Consulate Representatives" will be in Longview Saturday to issue about 700 of the I.D. cards to Mexican citizens who have registered for them.

With more immigrants and migrant workers coming to Texas, the Mexican government saw the need to issue the cards for legal Mexican workers in the U-S. Police say they have experienced some "identity" problems with Mexican nationals.
