Only a Mexican national, a citizen of Mexico, can make an appointment for this. Their goal is to get a Matricula Consular card. This is a sham ID. The reason they need this? To get a drivers license from the DMV.
The problem is that if you are a Mexican citizen and you are here with a green card or on a visa then you have all the documentation you need to go to DMV to get a license, you don't need a matricula card.
So everyone who is getting one of these has two characteristics: They are Mexicans (foreign nationals) and they don't have proper documentation. This means that they are all criminal aliens!

No irony in explaing your rights in the workplace to someone who is ineligible to work.
