DeCell said a friend in California bought him the fake Mexican card for $20.

"I sent him a passport-size photo and the spelling of my name, and he had the card made for me on the street," he said.

Days before his meeting with DHS officials, DeCell was asked to furnish his name, Social Security number and birth date, so they could be compared by security personnel to a valid form of picture identification. The building security accepted his matricula card, even though it listed a false date of birth, he said.

He was allowed entry into the building after walking through a metal detector, according to a statement posted on his group's Web site.

I think that Americans need ask there government some hard questions.
If a $20 fake ID isnt picked up by the security systems in place how will more sophisticated fake IDs be detected ?
Why bother fighting the war on terror overseas if you dont secure the home front ?

Whats worse is the possability that it could have been allowed to happen. Use it as another excuse to increase already existing ID security.

Pretty bad out sourceing fake IDs, never would have thought it has come to that...
