On this site we’ve profiled how Wal-Mart employed illegal alien janitorial contractors and illegal alien construction workers. Both times–despite Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) show raids–the mass retailer got away with it. And the company got a Federal Judge to also look the other way.
Now, Wal-Mart has come full circle. Wal-Mart de Mexico, SA, announced it opened six brand new stores in Mexico, last week. That means that Wal-Mart now has 845 stores there.
Since Mexico’s economy is in the toilet, the flourishing of Wal-Mart in Mexico is likely the result–in large part–of one thing: U.S. dollars to illegal aliens from employers . . . employers like Wal-Mart, via the contractors it forced to hire them.
And that’s another effect of the illegal alien problem you rarely hear about: the drainage of U.S. dollars away from our economy and into Mexico’s (and other countries’), via the (often untaxed) salaries paid to illegal aliens.
So, now we see those wages come full circle for Wal-Mart. It forces contractors to hire illegal aliens on our own soil–depressing wages and taking jobs away from Americans. Then, those aliens send the money back home, denying our economy most of the rejuvenation that those dollars cause in the hands of Americans. Then, the relatives of those aliens spend the dollars in Mexico . . . at Wal-Mart. And now Wal-Mart is the largest retailer in Latin America–courtesy of all of the dollars being pumped out of the U.S. economy, much of it from illegal aliens.
Somebody give the shifty, dishonest, unpatriotic Wal-Mart execs a prize. They’ve managed to work the illegal alien syndicate on all ends. And get away with it.
Don’t forget that the retail giant couldn’t have done it without its cooperative friends in the Bush Administration–Michael Garcia (then-ICE Chief who allowed Wal-Mart to get away with alien janitors, in exchange for a tiny penalty) and Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” (current-ICE Chieftess who allows Wal-Mart to get away with alien construction workers). Ditto for Clinton Judge Joseph A. Greenaway who took care of Wal-Mart in the Judiciary.
More on Wal-Mart and illegal aliens here, here, and here.
