How else does one explain the alarming and dangerous policy by this powerful financial institution? Iâ€™ve heard some on the far left argue that this policy is nothing more then helping â€œimmigrantsâ€ access a tiny bit of the â€œAmerican Dreamâ€. Of course they â€œleftâ€ out the key ingredient in this equation, and that is that Bank of Americaâ€™s new credit card policy is purposely marketing and targeting its promotions to â€œillegalâ€™sâ€â€¦people breaking the law.
Imagine a banking institution, that I assume is regulated by the federal banking industry knowingly encouraging, breaking the law of the land. Giving out credit cards to undocumented and dare I say again, â€œillegalsâ€. No Social Security number, no driverâ€™s license, no passportâ€¦nothing, zip, zero. Of course Bank of America has been extremely vague, as to how one identifies a customer. Do they need to show US residency?
And if so isnâ€™t Bank of America aiding and abiding in a criminal act, by the very nature of their actions? And what of criminal acts that have been or may be committed by illegalâ€™s using funds provided by Bank of America to perhaps fund illegal activities or worse yet acts of terrorism? Does Bank of America bare any liability?
Our friends on the left may argue that anyone can break the law, documented or not, and of course thatâ€™s true, they may also point out that many illegals have already established residency, and perhaps have lived in this country for many years and that may also be true. However, I can also assume with some certainty that there are US Citizens that drive with suspended licenses, and I would also imagine that thereâ€™s a far amount that have not paid court ordered child support payments to their children.
My point is simply this we live in a society where weâ€™ve created and enacted rules of law for the betterment of mankind; and elect officials to protect those institutions that we the populace have deemed necessary. If certain laws need to be revised, changed or even eliminated, thereâ€™s a process thatâ€™s been in place since the founding of this country, to do just that.
Native born, legal and undocumented aliens can all break the law; however the fundamental difference between these groups is that with the undocumented alien the law has already been broken.
Our friends on the left may again argue that the law itself discriminates, and my question then would be, against whom? The legal alien whoâ€™s willingly going through the process, to be documented, and hopefully becoming an American Citizen, the key word being â€œhopefullyâ€ why because simply put documentation weeds out the criminal eliminate within our society and I would hopefully (fingers crossed) assume that our friends on the left would agree, thatâ€¦thatâ€™s a good thing.
So far the only requirement that Bank of America is willing to share with the media and more importantly with its customers, is that all one needs to do is have a checking account for 6-months, and not be overdrawn.
In this post 9/11 world that isnâ€™t good enough. Perhaps Bank of America should hear from millions of citizens and more importantly from its â€œdocumented customersâ€.
Several months ago there were large demonstrations around the country, both in support and in opposition to the immigration issue. I was astounded to see elected public officials marching in support and encouraging â€œillegalsâ€ from other countries to continue breaking the very laws they themselves have sworn to defend and protect.
This is not a civil rights issue, but rather a national security issue; it strikes at the very core of our existence. All one needs to do is remind themselves of that faithful day in 2001 and realize that the world we live in has changed, no longer are we protected by friendly neighbors to the north and south, or oceans, to the east and west.
It seems ironic that on that September morn, the evil doers sought to cripple us in the very financial institutions, that Bank of America now seems oblivious too. In five short years theyâ€™ve forgotten, how nine undocumented aliens where able to use our own lack of awareness and security against us, murdering over 3,000 innocent civilians, and changing forever the landscape and mindset of a free nation and an incredible city.
