News stories that make you go...."huh?"

By Mickster269 ·

"A local group fighting for immigrant rights is calling for a boycott of two nationally known companies. Dunkin Donuts and Applebee's are accused of discriminating against immigrant workers whose names don't match their social security numbers."

Apparently, the two chains are firing people who's names don't match thier Social Security numbers.


And my son wonders why I become more conservative every day...

P.S. And, what's with that ABC article title? This is not about immigrants. It's about illegal immigrants. X-(

Didn't it pull at your heart strings about the poor guy not wanting his criminal mother to be deported?

The only thing it made ME think was "A REAL son would go WITH his mother"! X-(

Yup. Intentionally misleading title.

In my view (and everyone can disagree), "we" have brought this all on ourselves by allowing millions and millions of them to come here illegally for decades without doing anything about it. It would be pretty heartless to ruthlessly herd them up and send them away now.

But, we damn well better stop more from coming illegally through appropriate and strong measures. And we better send a strong word out to those considering coming illegally that we are serious about it (i.e. through ACTION).

And, if those who are here illegally already don't stop trying to affect the political process like this, I might change my mind about them too.

P.S. It's all up to them. Either or X-( .

P.P.S. I think all coming here should be legal. :^0

Actually Tigger, I left "Supportive" out on purpose.

I'm with you

Applebees is one of my very favourite places- they donate staff, location, and food to charities raising money in the community. They have hosted dozens of Pancake Breakfasts for The 3 Day alone in the past year- and are committed to more.

I am sorry if illegals have a problem with being fired when their name doesn't match their SSN. I would be fired for the same offense... and I was born here.

The employment application clearly states the falsifying information is a firable offense. What is the issue?

You hateful little.....

What kind of racist would dream about firing someone just because they falsified legal government documentations to illegally gain employement?

What could you be thinking? :0

I think that EACH notice from the government should be hand delivered by and IRS AND INS agents, working together. You will either be able to prove it was a typo, or you go with the nice gentlement. Do not pass go, do not collect your belongings, over the new fence your criminal a$$ would go THAT DAY.

I do hope you knew I was being sarcastic, right? Would never seriously accuse you of this.
