MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The Mexican government has been asked to give Wisconsin its own consulate office.  Governor Scott Walker said Wisconsin has a growing number of Mexican nationals -- and many have to wait two months or more to get required documents from Mexico. 

Wisconsin is currently served by a mobile consulate office, plus a permanent facility in Chicago that also serves Illinois and Indiana.  Walker asked for a separate Wisconsin consulate in a letter to Mexico's president, Enrique Pena Nieto -- and Mexico's ambassador to the U-S, Eduardo Medina Mora. 

Walker told them that Wisconsin has had a "tremendous relationship" with Mexico over the years.  He said Mexico is Wisconsin's second-largest trading partner, and Hispanic-owned businesses have grown by almost eight-percent a year in the Badger State.  Walker said a new consulate would continue the economic growth pattern.  As of last year, Hispanics made up around 6-percent of the state's population.
