Boycotting Home Depot? Who else supports illegal immigration?

I was told today that Home Depot supports illegal immigration by encouraging illegals to congregate in their lots for the purposes of obtaining employment as day labor with contractors? The way I hear it is that they even have porta-potties in the lot and let food trucks take up parking spaces to service these illegals?

Does anyone know of any "accurate" lists on the internet of companies that in whatever manner support or encourage hiring illegals? Obviously you can't tell just by looking at a product who they've hired, or by looking at a person whether or not they are legally in the country, but I'd be very interested in changing my consumer spending habits to support companies that employ legally and ethically if given reliable information.

Thanks y'all ... have a good one.

    The Big Money Behind La Raza

    he National Council of La Raza, the nation's largest and most influential Hispanic chauvinist organization, receives financial backing from some of America's largest banks and corporations. With multi-million dollar funding from corporate America, La Raza operates a powerful political and communications network of hundreds of affiliates in 41 states that works to shape American government and society to suit its own ideological and cultural interests. As a powerful advocate for amnesty for illegal aliens and staunch opponent of border security, La Raza lobbies regularly on behalf of the political positions taken by the Mexican government against U.S. border fencing and interior immigration law enforcement. Its activities on behalf of millions of Hispanic immigrants in the U.S., most of them from Mexico, help countries like Mexico achieve demographic and political leverage in domestic American affairs.

    WalMart has been fined more than once for hiring illegals.

    IBF meat packing (who supplies most of the packaged meat to the US) has been raided many times for hiring illegals.

    I'm sure if you look at any major corporation and their business model you will see that increased profit is their goal above anything else. Therefore, hiring cheap illegal labor is an easy way for a mid-level manager to meet their profit goals for the year in his/her division and thus retain their job.

    Since the govt. cracked down on the border last year, the illegal labor at Home Depot has all but disappeared. But they used to stand out front at Lowes as well.

  • OMG you people are ridiculous. I work for home depot in NY. That is soooo not true. The reason there are a lot of illegals hanging around home depot is because they are looking for construction jobs. HELLO?

    The food trucks outside are for employees. Though we call it the roach coach cuz we don't eat from it but customer do.

    ANd although our store doesn't have porta potties. I haven't seen any store yet with toilets outside and i've been to several prob around 25-30 in my 6 yrs working for them.

    The Home Depot's here in California now have people to chase them away. Although they return... it is not too easy for employers to hire them anymore. They are afraid of getting in trouble and/or fined.

    I work at home Depot and i don't think we have many illegals there..wouldn't really care anyway though, they have to eat don't they. Why boycott it ,it's no worse then Walmart even if it is true .

  • Wow. I can't believe they would do that. I agree with you; and I too believe I will change my spending habits in order to give my service to those ethically hiring and supporting legal immigrants and legal citizens.
