Default Wal-Mart, I.C.E. Deny Rumors About Raids On Shoppers

Talk about paranoia. Why continue to live in fear of ICE? There’s a simple solution: GO HOME!

Quote:
Immigrant advocate Tony Yapias said he started getting the calls and text messages on Sunday that immigration agents would raid Wal-Mart stores to arrest undocumented immigrants. “At first I thought it was a joke,” he said. But by Monday, the texts messages and calls only increased. “Between calls and text messages – over 100,” said Yapias.

The rumors seem to have started in other parts of the country and spread to Utah. Yapias, who often is a source of information for immigrants in the Salt Lake area said people who contacted him were scared. “They’re very concerned, very scared about it. They said ‘Tony, tell me this is not true.”

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) does not comment on its future operations. However, contrary to the reported rumors, ICE has no agreement with Wal-Mart regarding worksite enforcement operations.

This is what you wanted though, extensive efforts to target illegal immigrants. Therefore costing businesses and tax payers thus hurting the middle class even more.

Default Anti-Illegals are Elitists

The Anit-Illegal movement has no concern for the working poor of this country...not the illegal working poor, the White, Black, and Hispanic working poor of this nation.

If the Anti-Illegal Elitist can care less if Walmart or the Dollar Tree or any other minimun wage job suffers with the Crackdown on illegal shoppers.

Walmart didnt hire the shoppers, yet Anti-illegal elitist believe that if Walmart makes money off illegals, then they should close down...Tough for the woman that feeds her family with that Walmart paycheck.

But thats the Elitist mindset...Me and Mine first, sorry about the rest.
They expouse the Constitution, and American Culture, but are the ones that want to change the most revered Document in American History...The US Constitution. Willy-Nilly, "We will re-write this Amendment and Change This Amendment"...They are the true Elite Sons and Daughters of America, and only they have the correct cure.

So sorry Walmart Shoppers, Workers, Suppliers...the Elite know whats best.

I just can't stop laughing! Turn on the light and they scatter, if here illegally, better stay in the dark, we are coming after you. OR you can go home before it is too late. I like the idea of detaining illegals for 90 days before deportation. It causes main bread winners to lack financing for their set up "homes" forcing a chain reaction of self-deportation. If instantly released, they usually come back in very quickly with no repercussions.

I have absolutely no concern for the illegal working poor, the illegal working middle class, the illegal business owner, or any other sector of the illegal alien population. My concern is for the citizens of this country. If that makes me selfish, so be it.

BTW, the elitists are the illegal alien peddlers/profiteers.

They knew the risk before snaking through the desert at night hiding from the LE officials. I have no remorse for these law breakers.


Funny that no one blames the Countries Govt or the fact that the people doing it are putting themselves in a precarious position by uncontrolled breeding.

It's all the American's fault. Sorry traitors, we are not drinking the koolaid.

Well then there are a lot of selfish people out there just as you and me there are many others, who make it clear, if you are not here legally go home, we don't want you here. I think our Citizens should come first should we not?
