AVON PARK, Fla. — City leaders are considering revising a proposed ban on assistance to illegal immigrants after learning its broad scope might block the construction of a Wal-Mart.

Default the best part

This is the best part:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. paid a record $11 million fine last year in a settlement with the Homeland Security Department over hiring illegal immigrants


Yet still allowed to do business. THats alot of money to pay if your not guilty....

11 million fine for Walmart is laughable. They should keep the ordinance. No Walshark and tougher immigration laws. Sounds good to me.

Wal-Mart is hiring so many illegals it's to the point where it has risen to organized crime levels. Wal-Mart and any other retailer or meat plant that hires large numbers of illegals should be hit with a civil RICO suit and sued.
