SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Minuteman Project plans to protest this week at two Holladay bank branches.

The Minutemen will protest this Friday at the branches who accept the new Utah driving privilege card and the Mexican matricula consular card. They allege that by accepting the cards as identification, Zions and Wells Fargo banks are breaking federal law by encouraging illegal immigration.

However, the two banks say the law allows them to accept the two forms of identification as a means of opening an account.

Wells Fargo spokesman Mark Chapman said they are going to maintain everything in accordance to the law. He said they are not going to do something that would potentially harm the company or its customers.
