Bank of America’s Illegals: Letter to the Editor of the Day

In February, the Wall Street Journal gave Bank of America chief Kenneth D. Lewis space to “defend” his bank’s sell-out to illegal aliens, issuing them credit cards.
Today’s WSJ had a couple of good letters to the editor attacking Lewis and BoA (and one moronic letter defending him–by a woman named Elaine Jancourtz of Plainsboro, NJ). The letter was by Vincent P.A. Benedict of Collegeville, PA was terrific, so I reprint it below:

Thank you for allowing Kenneth Lewis to plead his case for granting illegal immigrants access to credit cards through his bank; you acted in the true spirit of press freedom.
And I, exercising my freedom, canceled my $39,900 credit-line credit card, which I had held since 1996.

Bank of Illegals

In addition, I have canceled all of my Bank of America accounts and have elected never to do business with Mr. Lewis’s company again. Freedom is a wonderful thing.
Vincent P.A. Benedict
Collegeville, Pa.

Kudos to Mr. Benedict.

Alas, soon we’ll have to switch back to cash and stashing savings under the pillow – turns out all of the major ones do that and that didn’t start yesterday. For quite a number of years Wells Fargo started their “pilot” program in Mexifornia which they are planning to spread to the rest of US this year. Citibank does it too. It’s all about money, they have no morals and no nationality left to obstruct them from making profits.

I am canceling my Bank of America card. If all the legals did that BOA would be out of business.

If I only had googles of money in my accounts at BOA, I would say “Adios Gringos”. The only safe investment is precious metals anyway therefore keep as little in banks as you can.

I called the day after and cancelled all three of my Bank of America cards. We’re doomed anyway, the fix is in. America is over. The third world is invading and they are going to wreck everything.

I’m happy allowing illegals to invest in our economy.

It just isn’t fair that some businesses are being made to pay for doing business with illegals yet others find loopholes to profit from it and thumb it in our faces. No one should be doing business period nor should sanctuary cities receive federal/state funds until they stop this sanctuary bull.
I hope congress closes this loophole up…it’s just not right. Shame on you Bank of America. I’d expect that from Bank of Mexico but not BoA.
Just say NO to illegal aliens.
