LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - About 120 people visit the Mexican consulate in the state capital every day, driving for hours from as far as Tulsa, Okla., and Memphis, Tenn.

Some are seeking basic consulate services like help for someone in legal trouble or returning a deceased person to their homeland. Others come to obain a "matricula consular," a form of identification that the Mexican government makes available to Mexican nationals regardless of their immigration status.
