credit unions to serve undocumented poll

A recent Letter to the Editor that stated credit unions should not serve illegal immigrants sparked a debate among CU Times readers.

“Since those aliens are here illegally, they cannot take up residence, for one cannot be both resident, which implies a legal status, and illegal,” wrote William R. Clark, board member at the $1.2 billion HAPO Community Credit Union in Richland, Wash. “Let’s cut right to the chase: Credit unions have no more business serving illegal aliens than they have serving money launderers. Both are illegal! That the current administration will more likely ignore serving the illegal alien than serving the money launderer does not make the former any more right.”

For those on Google+, take our poll on whether credit unions should serve undocumented immigrants.

Across social media channels many readers weighed in on the topic. Some agreed, thanking Clark for standing up for America.
