the latest screed on immigration

i'm on about 2 gazillion mailing lists of folks of every stripe and political persuasion. most of the stuff i get by e-mail is either very old and dusty jokes, or some rant about political issues. most get deleted within the first two sentences. some i pass around to those very few that don't get all this stuff cluttering up THEIR email in boxes. hmmm, does that make me part of the problem????. anyway, i've been the recipient of many many missives decrying illegal immigration, most of which is pure crap.
this one i find too frightening to dismiss.
read or ignore. i'm not trying to change anyone's point of view. i checked out the snopes link, and it's the real deal.

Information you should know:

A conversation between a Customer and Bank of America Bank:
The Bank: Bank of America, can I help you?
Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't want to do business with you any longer.
The Bank: Why?
Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants and I don't think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.
The Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do that, but we can't stop you. I'll help you close the account. What is your account number?
Customer: (gives account number)
The Bank: For security purposes and for your protection, can you please give me the last four digits of your social security number?
Customer: No
The Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information, but in order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are.
Customer: Why should I give you my social security number? The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have social security numbers. You are targeting that audience and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a Social Security number, would you?
The Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.
Customer: Why not?
The Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in Spanish. We don't ask for that information when calling in on the Spanish line.

I provided "snopes" for doubters:

The War Department recently cancelled our account with Bank of America for the same reason. She spent twenty minutes arguing with the chick on the other end who didn't feel it was any big deal and felt we should keep doing business with B of A.

Finally the WD asked, "Where are you located anyway, sometimes it's difficult for me to place accents."

The customer service rep she was dealing with was in Canada. DUH!

Wonder why she felt the actions of B of A were no big deal?
