more over if an American Company wants to print English and any other language on their product, its none of your business...If you dont like it, dont buy the product. If that owner wants to sell his product in another country, there is no law which says he needs your permission. Keep you nose out of other peoples business is good business.
If a company is doing something flagrantly unethical: it is my right to 'poke my nose into their business'----------otherwise the lawbreakers will only be enboldened. The light of truth tends to keep miscreants 'quiet', shall we say.

It's just a silly thing to boycott a company on such grounds (only the basis of hiring illegal immigrants). Yet, you probably wouldn't boycott a company whose practices are unsafe and unfair abroad.

Apparently illegal aliens and other “Hispanics” are planning to boycott Walmart unless they publicly support amnesty. If they have legitimate complaints, they should focus on those exclusively.

ATLANTA – The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights will lead a boycott of Walmart to call for the world’s biggest retailer to adopt a favorable position vis-a-vis immigration reform.

“The aim of this initiative is to send a signal, give a wake-up call to Walmart, which, with its huge number of Latino customers, also has a moral obligation – and with the enormous influence that it has – to support (immigration) reform,” GLAHR’s Teodoro Maus told Efe.

“A Month Without Wal-Mart,” which is slated to begin on March 20, seeks to send a message of “lack of conformity” regarding such a pro-immigration-reform stance and the firm’s behavior toward the Hispanic community, GLAHR says.

Well said. We've already allowed multi-national corporations to hold entirely too much influence over our political process. There's certainly no reason to let these morally equivocating Open Borders advocates dictate when and when not we Americans are allowed stand up for our right to have our laws enforced.

I agree...Walmart has about as much to say on US Immigration Policy as does ExxonMoblie or Toyota...nothing.

Everyone in this country who has a right to be here is treated equally so what are you talking about? It is selfish to care about one's own country and the welfare of their own families first?

Too bad there are americans that are so selfish that they put greed aka cheap illegal labor or they put their ethnicity above the best interests of this country. Too bad that mexico doesn't care enough about its citizens to provide a good economy for them. Too bad that some people use the race card in the illegal immigration issue where it doesn't belong.

good economy?? Im surprised you would even mention that. You talk as if the u.s. Has a good economy. If they would give an immigration reform, the government would benifit from it so the u.s. Economy would actully get better then whats left of it now. But then again leave it the way it is. At least my uncle doesnt have to pay taxes hahaha

Most of these illegals don't make enough to pay in enough taxes to cover their social costs even by legalizing them. They would still be a net negative to our economy.

Are you sure you did not mean Mexico while discussing the USA? The former nation is the one facing collapse due in large part to the narcos running legit businesses out of Juaraz, etc.
