Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- March 7
    Wian: ...It says, "U.S. officials estimate that since 2003, as much as $22 billion may have been repatriated to Mexico from the United States by drug trafficking organizations."
    That's equivalent to one-fifth of legal remittances by Mexican citizens living in the U.S. legally or illegally. Those remittances have accelerated since 2002 when the Treasury Department began allowing U.S. banks to accept Mexico's matricula consular identification card. Some lawmakers are trying to stop the practice.
    Vitter: This is a document issued by the Mexican government, which clearly, and I think it's beyond debate, that it clearly goes to many, many illegal immigrants, Mexican citizens, in the United States, illegally and helps them at the present time under present law and practice, particularly the banking industry get credit cards, open bank accounts, make it very possible to live and operate in this country.
