Sorry for writing so late, but the day just gets away from one.
I read in the New Haven Independent that Sovereign Bank has said it would take the new New Haven city identity card with a passport to allow an illegal alien to open a checking account.
Hmmmm. Methinks that someone might be able to open an account with just a passport.
The main question, however, is: How many of the illegals have valid passports? They are undocumented. I wonder if a Mexican citizen with a valid passport can enter the U.S. without a visa, just as a U.S. citizen could enter Mexico, before the Bushies decided to make things difficult for travelers.
So far, Len'sLens survey found one major bank saying "No Way" and others saying they are still thinking about it.
We will report our findings when the banks make up their minds.
Until, then, have a great weekend and for those in the Tribe: Have a great Shabbos.
Until next time...
