Well isn't this nice:

Bank of America launches credit card for illegal immigrants

Bank of America, the country's second-largest bank, "has quietly begun offering credit cards to customers without Social Security numbers -- typically illegal immigrants," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Customers can qualify for a credit card if they have had a checking account at the bank for at least three months. They are required to leave a deposit and pay a relatively high interest rate, according to the paper.

The program is controversial. Bank of America says it will help undocumented workers build good credit. But critics say one of the USA's largest financial institutions should not be helping people who violate the country's immigration laws.

Well, this pisses me off.  How do you feel about it?  Oh, and you might be interested to know that BofA is the vendor for government travel cards.  That's right, our tax dollars are helping to subsidize these illegal immigration-enablers.  Wonderful.
