Toys"R"Us has recently shown their lack of respect for both U.S. law and their own rules, and I suggest boycotting them. Their Babies"R"Us subsidiary recently held a "First Baby of 2007" contest, with the winner receiving $25,000. There were three possibilities, and the winner of the tie-breaker drawing turned out to be the child of illegal aliens. This was a violation of the contest rules, which stated that it was only open to "women... who are legal residents [of the U.S.]"
After a manufactured controversy by ethnic advocacy groups, ToysRUs has capitulated and given the prize to all three finalists.
On the one hand this is the smartest move based on their situation. On the other hand, they've sent the message that neither their rules nor our laws really matter. And, they've in effect supported anchor babies as well as perhaps foreign citizens receiving subsidized U.S. healthcare.
