Well THEY do have one very important thing in common. THEY are all here illegally and that says an awful lot about their character.

It doesnt say a whole lot, does it?

What about their character if they were brought here as children, as so many were?

They are still here illegally. They can go home-with their parents to the country-whereever that is-where they were all born. They are legal residents if they were born there and would be afforded rights and benefits of their country.

American children pay the price for mistakes made by their American parents all the time. No one ever said life was easy or fair.

Maybe the parents should have thought about potential consequences before they broke the law.

And to boycott a business just for selling to illegals? Ridiculous.
IN addition to pandering to illegals, best buy ALSO discriminates against mexican americans, blacks and women in their managerial promotions. look at this link:

Best Buy Race and Gender Discrimination Class Action

They = ILLEGAL. They = ID theft, document fraud, abuse of tax-funded services, anchor baby benefits, etc. They DO NOT = integrity. What gives you the impression that THEY would honor anything legal, when they circumvent EVERY law in this country?

AMEN, Benicar

As I have posted before, if any individual blatantly snubs his nose at our Immigration Laws as well as our Border Patrol Agents, why in the world would anyone expect them to honor ANY of our laws?

Personally, I hope The unethical GREEDIES at BestBuy lose their butts with this ridiculous policy but that will only end up by costing all consumers and, worse yet, the taxpayers of this country

Some people are blind to what they don't want to see, as well.

'They' sure as shooting don't pay their anchor's hospital delivery bills. If it's OK to skip out on that bill, what makes you think they are going to actually pay for their big screen TV?

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 hate to say you wasted your time but you probably did. This way of life seems to be prevalent in certain parts of the world. I have been to a Third World country and seen the same sort of thing. Households would have a TV and VCR yet no indoor or outdoor plumbing facilities. And this did not seem to bother them in the least. Many of these communities are very dysfunctional and relocating the residents in the US will not solve a thing. What is it that prevents them from getting together and digging a communal latrine? Or working as a group to dig a latrine for each household? Instead of buying satellite dishes and TVs why don't they pool their funds and work on getting a reliable source of water, something that would benefit the entire community? Why should someone have to come from a First World country to teach them to basics of healthcare? Couldn't they take time out from their busy viewing schedule to watch the Health Channel or something? At least pick up the trash in the street. The mindset seems to be that unless Someone Else either does things for them or outright gives them what they need, nothing gets done to address the issues that affect their community.

Are Hispanic Family Values a Myth?


Nearly half of the children born to Hispanic mothers in the U.S. are born out of wedlock, a proportion that has been increasing rapidly with no signs of slowing down. Given what psychologists and sociologists now know about the much higher likelihood of social pathology among those who grow up in single-mother households, the Hispanic baby boom is certain to produce more juvenile delinquents, more school failure, more welfare use, and more teen pregnancy in the future.
Quote:
The most powerful Hispanic family value—the tight-knit extended family—facilitates unwed child rearing. A single mother’s relatives often step in to make up for the absence of the baby’s father.
