Two reasons people give, for why illegal aliens should be run out of this country. One, they just come here for welfare. Two, they take jobs away from Americans.
The 300-plus undocumented aliens rounded up at Wal-Marts nationwide yesterday, including two Wal-Marts in San Antonio, make exactly the opposite point.
One, they came here to work, not to collect handouts. Two, the jobs they were "stealing" were custodian and janitor jobs not exactly work that American citizens are clamoring to do.
The illegals from Mexico, Germany and other countries were working for subcontractors, and were not Wal-Mart employees.
Funny thing. After the news spread that maybe Wal-Mart was keeping costs down by using undocumented help, its stock rose just over 7-percent [$0.46 to $58.70].
Not exactly a sign of disapproval.
