I know a number of illegal aliens and they all send their money South via Western Union. I presume this is predominate manner as Third World Postal systems are corrupt and inefficient.

So, why not establish identity checks at Western Union, Moneygram International, and similar money sending locations?

Same could be said for Check Cash stores.

I mean as in confirm legality of the sender.

Because you dont have to be a US citizen to use a legal money transfer service.

Funny, I have to show identification when I want to make a financial transaction at my bank, why not at other financial places of business???

Illegal alien invaders should have no right to use any of America's resources.

It's time America puts the clamps on these <ahem> people........

For Western Union I am all for confirming the legality of the recipient. Americans lose too much of their money to 419-type scams that way. Besides, I just use Bank of America to send money to my suegra completely cost-free.

Why don't you just say "mother-in-law" since Spanish isn't your langauge?

Well, she does bug me about learning Spanish...

But I wanted my household to focus more on using English...

So far I haven't been disappointed...

Boy, it's rough trying to post on what could be borrowed time...

So you agree illegal alien invaders shouldn't be allowed to use any money wire transfer services, I apologize....

Because if it's not a right then it's a privilege.... and they should provide proper legal ID to utilize the service....
