McALLEN -- A Wal-Mart truck driver will face federal charges for allegedly trying to sneak illegal immigrants into the country in a company tractor-trailer.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Alejandro Hernandez, 50, after finding four Mexican nationals locked in the back of his 18-wheeler, according to court filings obtained Monday.

Whats your point?
Walmart greeters who don't speak english. This is the United States of America. The common language is English. Why hirer a greeter who can not speak the common language?
In the case of this thread.
A truck driver is caught smuggling illegals.
I am not ashamed of wishing that they throw him in jail for his crime.

I think Walmart was just doing it's usual thing -- going to Mexico to find the cheapest possible labor. The Walmart where I live is mostly Spanish speaking, store announcements, many cashiers speak no English and you get your change counted out in Spanish.

Becasuse you dont speak English does not mean your illegal.
I would say that for every citizen NOT illegal I have met here who speaks English I have met several who do not or limited English REAL LIMITED.

I dont include kids born here .
