Poll: Bank of America is encouraging illegal immigration

Source: Business Journal

Which comes as a surprise to precisely no one, well, except reductio absurdists like Hannitized...
There is no doubt how Business Journal readers feel about Bank of America Corp. offering credit cards to illegal immigrants.

In an online survey, 81 percent of 457 respondents think Bank of America is encouraging illegal immigration and should stop. Only 19 percent think the bank should be able to pursue any customers it wants within the law.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that BofA was offering credit cards in Los Angeles to people without a Social Security number or a credit history, as long as they had held a checking account with the bank for three months with no overdrafts. The bank plans to expand the program nationwide later this year.

Readers opposed to the plan think BofA should end it even though it’s legal.

“Who in America doesn’t have a Social Security number?” asked one reader. “Illegal immigrants. Obviously, Bank of America doesn’t care that it’s helping these lawbreakers. Shame on them.”
