Public Description:  

H.R. 773, the 21st Century Access to Banking Act, would authorize financial institutions to accept matricula consular ID cards as a valid form of identification. This would have allowed illegal aliens to use the non-secure and non-verifiable matricula consular ID card to open bank accounts in the United States, thus making it easier for illegal aliens to live and work in the United States.
