Bank of America CEO Kenneth Lewis defiantly says won't cancel credit card for illegal aliens

Bank of America CEO Kenneth Lewis has written an editorial for the Wall Street Journal explaining his side of the credit card for illegal aliens his bank offers. In yet another bone-headed move, it's subscriber-only. A large percentage of those who subscribe to that rag will probably already support their position; it's the rest of us he should be trying to hustle. This also underlines that that bank is part of a elite that is indifferent to the concerns of the vast majority of Americans.

Fox summarizes it here, saying that they're defiantly continuing the program:
"Bank of America does not deliberately market financial products and services to illegal immigrants from any country." he wrote. Instead, the bank chief said that the program was created to help consumers who lack certain financial tools.

"We believe we have an obligation to serve all those in our country who are legally eligible to receive services. To do less would be discriminatory and unfair."

..."As with all our products, the program meets the identification requirements of the USA Patriot Act, U.S. Treasury Department regulations and internal fraud prevention procedures," he wrote...

..."We know some will find this unacceptable. Even so, we feel we have a great obligation to live by the laws of the land, to serve our customers, and to do our part to support the security of our nation's financial systems."
And, from the blurb:
First, the program is not about illegal immigrants, and never was. ...
Tell me another one. One of the ways that a customer can obtain the credit card or the required checking account is with Mexico's Matricula Consular card, which is almost a guarantee that the bearer is an illegal alien. If it isn't about "illegal immigrants", then surely Lewis should have no problem with stopping to accept that card (which, by the way, the Bush administration fought to allow banks to accept).

If it "isn't about illegal aliens", why is the "pilot program" in L.A.? Why not Charlotte, N.C.?

"Bank of America does not deliberately market financial products and services to illegal immigrants from any country."

What a fucking liar. And yet he's a CEO in today's America.

First, the program is not about illegal immigrants, and never was. ...

Tell me another one.

Actually, I think he is telling the truth there. For him, it isn't about illegal immigrants, it is about the almighty $$$. Just one more scum willing to sellout his country, right George "Money Trumps Peace" Bush?
