Do most of you accept the following as appropriate forms of primary ID under your Customer Identification Programs?

Nexus Cards
Consular ID Cards
Border Crossing Cards

I just won the battle to stop accepting Matricula cards. (yay!) We never accepted the other two.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
We accept the Matricula Consular cards that were issued after a certain date - when they beefed up security.

Revisiting this post again to determine if any banks are accepting border crossing/matricular cards at this time??? If not, please provide your explanation as to why not. In one of our new markets in north Texas, the population is primarily Hispanic so we're trying to determine whether to accept this id for check cashing and/or at account opening.

Appreciate your feedback!!! Feel free to PM me!

You are here

The FBI and Justice Department have cited a number of problems with Matricula cards:

•The government of Mexico has no centralized database to coordinate the issuance of consular ID cards. This allows multiple cards to be issued under the same name, the same address, or with the same photograph.

•The cards are issued to anyone who can produce a Mexican birth certificate and one other form of identity, including documents of very low reliability. Mexican birth certificates are easy to forge and a major item of the fraudulent document trade currently flourishing across the country and around the world.

Some Mexican consulates issue Matricula cards to individuals unable to produce any documents whatsoever. In those cases, applicants complete a questionnaire that establishes their identity.

•The Matricula is vulnerable to forgery, and many of the estimated 2 million in circulation are simply laminated cards without security features.

No. If they are here legally they should have a passport or legal ID wouldn't they?

With some irony, I've observed that the further you are from "the Valley;" i.e. the U.S./Mexican border, the more likely it is that banks will accept this kind of identification. Banks in Texas and some of the contiguous states generally do not accept them.
