Score one for the “no-borders” gang.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Bank of America Corp. has begun offering credit cards to customers without Social Security numbers, typically illegal immigrants, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.
In recent years, banks across the country have been offering checking accounts and even mortgages to the nation’s fast-growing ranks of undocumented immigrants, most of whom are Hispanic, the paper said, adding these immigrants generally have not been able to get major credit cards.
The new Bank of America card is open to people who lack both a Social Security number and a credit history, as long as they have held a checking account with the bank for three months without an overdraft, the Journal said.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service can’t seem to get a handle on this problem, but Bank of America can help illegal immigrants build a credit score? Puh-lease.
No Social Security Numbers… no income tax, no social security deposits, no medicaid/medicare, no… well shit, can someone explain to me how the “Bank of Amerika” avoids being fined for propagating this criminal activity?
