These are private businesses, and the 'legality' of their customer base is not the issue. The issue is demand.

There are all sorts of newspapers, TV channels, etc., based in the US, catering to non-English speakers. These businesses have no power to enforce immigration law...they are in business to make money.

I see no reason to believe a person who PREFERS Spanish to English is an illegal immigrant....and neither, apparently, does Wal-Mart.

If Wal-Mart at some point decides to sell fake ID's, illicit Green Cards, etc., or begins knowingly hiring illegals, then Wal.Mart can...and should ...be prosecuted. Conducting business in Spanish is not illegal.

Wal.Mart does PLENTY of 'shifty' stuff...including selling a VAST number of wood products from China. about HALF of which is (apparently) cut illegally in the nearly lawless forests of Siberia and bought by Chinese 'brokers' on the black market. If you want to be 'disgusted' with Wal-Mart, be my guest...perhaps they deserve it. But conducting business in Spanish is still, at this point, legal.
So, with over 10% of the entire population of Mexico here in the US illegally, Walmart is going to build a superstore in an area heavily infested with illegals with a 100% probability of hordes of illegals frequenting that store, and all Walmart is doing is conducting business in Spanish?

As I said, Walmart would be enabling illegal aliens to remain longer in the US which would only prolong the American taxpayers having to subsidize these illegals and all of the baggage they bring.

Wouldn't it be great if ICE raided the Walmart superstore? Talk about egg on Walmart's face. Of course, La Racist would call for the raids to stop. We could only hope, though, that customer backlash against Walmart would be severe.

It has been a sweet set up till now, and it needs to end both for the American blue collar worker and for the illegal workers who are getting screwed.

Nah, Sheriff Joe hits the 'Ranch Mercado' stores - those pay off.
