Only if you know that these companies activly recruit illegals are knowingly hire them.
Me myself I don't shop walmart anyway.
I think it is hypocritical to vote party line and then complain about the gov.
I think that it is hypocritical to be pro-illegal and then complain that the Gov doesn't punish employers.
Everyone is a hypocrite to some degree. For example I think professional sports are all fixed and yet I still enjoy watching pro football.

There have been a couple favorites. Walmart and Home Depot topped the list of the most frequently searched companies. Hopefully, you felt a little more at ease when you found out that they both use E-Verify! "

could I ask where this information about Wal Mart hiring illegals came from or what the OP is basing the comments on? I have shopped at many Wal Marts here, in Texas and NM, I have yet to see an employee that I would have wondered if they legal or not...

There is a Walmart across the street from where I live in AZ, so I shop there. This is not hypocritical, because I don't deny that I shop at Walmart, and I go to Safeway once a week anyway. Hypocrisy is not against the law. Hiring illegals is. If I could, I would boycott Walmart for their strong ties to Red China.

Yesterday, I told their customer service that they should boycott CA products. The lady didn't like that.

They don't appear to employ any illegals there. I was surprised to see that they don't carry Mexican flags, even around Cinco de Mayo.

I know that the Walmart supplier of books, videos and DVD's hires illegals. I have made a complaint to Walmart corporate, as well as that corporation itself about this. Ironically, the owner of this supplier company is on the board of directors of the Country Music Association, an organization one thinks of as being patriotic. I bet they don't know his company hires illegals, but they soon will.
