Glencliff High School hosts Mexican Consulate for issuance of matricula consular ID cards

Mexican Consulate visit in May 2002 saw 1,000 applicants line up for only 400 available cards.

"Teofila de la Cruz Aguilar and his wife, Maria Cerda, arrived shortly after 5:30 a.m. and stood six hours later in sight of the front door to Glencliff High School. Both said they needed cards to open a bank account. Aguilar was robbed twice, he said, because he had nowhere to put his money."

Tennessee law prohibits drivers license applicants from offering the matricula consular as a form of ID.
