So instead youll buy your electronics at a Wal Mart or something that actually hires illegals? lol. You guys have NO way of boycotting all businesses associated with illegal immigration.
And to boycott a business just for selling to illegals? Ridiculous.

No one knew a bit of English. They were the poor people we were going to help by building outhouses and teaching basic medical care to.

This town also had 5 mezcal distilleries and _numerous_ satellite dishes stuck up on the roofs. There were two gigantic trash dumps that were regularly on fire, though trash was all over the street, too. I saw new tvs and even vcrs in the houses. It seemed like everyone ate (and, ahem, drank) rather well. And I was asked numerous times for help getting into the U.S. so that they could get "free cars, free houses, and free food/health care."

I wouldn't go to Best Buy, anyway. Their customer service sucks. I usually get great customer service at CC.
I call BS.

There are other stores that do not hire illegals. Sorry illegals have not taken over every where and ever store. I personally buy my electronics from a local mom and pop store-not only do they price match the big guys but you get MUCH better service.

Well I do. There are two in my area. You see in NH which was a very rural place for many years only recently have big box stores come in-especially the farther north that you get. Before the big boxes came along-people needed some where to shop without having to drive into Massachusetts. So luckily, despite all the big boxes opening up, there are still local stores up here that are surviving.

Thanks for the link. They just lost a very good customer, and I will be more than happy to inform them.

It's one thing to "sell" to illegals. It's totally different to offer "credit" and overcharge others to recoup their losses. This is simply another abuse. They have no intentions of actually paying for anything. When credit is offered to illegals, they skip town with their goods. With the myriad aliases and fake ID's being used by illegals, creditors will NEVER locate them. As usual, legal citizens are left holding the bag.

Proof of this happening on a large scale? Or are you just speculating?

And how is this "simply another abuse"? You don't HAVE to shop at Best Buy. That place is expensive already, and I doubt it has anything to do with illegals ditching their payment planning. Just more crying over nothing.

Are you suggesting illegals will honor a credit agreement, when their entire existence in this country is based on lies and deception? They abuse EVERY service made available. Can you prove they aren't?

THEY is not one group. They are individuals, not one mass organism that thinks and moves the same.
