This is the other side of the coin where the business wants to make money from them and will turn their head to the illegal status.

Could this poster have refused to sell to them? Absolutely and the chances of not incurring repercussions from any legal entity are small. Instead the business would lose the other illegal customers and those that support illegal immigration/immigrants. So here you have someone motivated strictly by MONEY the same as those who employ the illegals!
wow. Well, feel free to boycott my delicious ice cream if you don't like who I do business with.

Hasn't your trendy roadside ice cream stand heard about our laws against feeding illegal immigrants?

I used to rent 1 part of a duplex, and when criminal aliens moved in next door i called ICE. I treated the criminals like the criminals they were.

I'll ask the same question of you as another poster which you refused to answer....

How did you ascertain their status as American citizens?

Did they tell you they were illegal aliens?

Do you ask everyone who purchases your ice cream if they are American citizens?

Are you stupid enough to take people at their word?

-or-

Do you use E-Verify to confirm what they tell you or show you papers?

no

no

no
or
no

not sure what difference any of this makes. I do a lot of business, statistically it's impossible that some number of my customers are not illegal. Do you think I should be verifying the citizenship of everyone that comes into my store?

Good the hek for you, and very proud of someone like you. I did the same thing last year, with a contractor, who thought he would pull the old cheap labor routine with me. As in hiring some illegals to do work on my home. Not the hell on your life. Italian to Italian we got into it hot and heavy. I won, or i called, and got his ass in trouble. Got my way, and that Italian knew not to mess with this one.

If he was not going to have American workers work on my construction projects, he was gone. Or if they were Mexican and legal i was fine, from then on out, yep, i wanted to see drivers license, i am a pain, but i got my way. He knew i knew who to call, i had already made some calls, so i knew what to do, if he would not cooperate with me.
Sorry if your here illegally, i don't have no need for your help.
