Former Arkansas governor and current presidential candidate Mike Huckabee arranged for a Mexican Consulate to be built in Little Rock. And, business is booming! Per Jon Gambrell of the Associate Press (link):
...In its first six months, the Mexican consulate based in Little Rock has seen the number of citizens it serves a day rise from 50 to 120, said consul Andres Chao. Now, Chao said the consulate plans to hire three or more new staffers in the coming year, anticipating demand will only grow [to as much as 300 per day].Please go to The Huckster's public appearances, ask him this question (youtube.com/watch?v=T5Dp7FaKIJo), and then upload his response.
...Most seek matricula consular identity cards or passports, while others come for legal protection or other needs.
So far, Chao said consulate employees have issued more than 10,000 documents since April...
