While it's illegal to hire undocumented workers, there's nothing wrong with lending them money – in fact, federal and state governments are actually encouraging banks to issue home mortgages to illegal aliens.
Foreigners who are not eligible for Social Security cards can apply to the IRS for an individual tax identification number (ITIN) enabling them to pay taxes. About 8 million ITINs have been issued since 1997 – and an ITIN can be an illegal alien's ticket to a home mortgage.
"Competition for new customers is driving banks to offer home loans and other financial services to illegal aliens – and they are getting help from government agencies, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.," the Wall Street Journal reports.
Said James Smith, a senior economist at the Rand Corp. think tank: "There is a fundamental contradiction here. We have one policy saying you can't be here illegally. In practice, another policy is saying that if you're here, we're going to cater to you."
Mitchell Bank, located in an area of Milwaukee that has seen an influx of illegal immigrants, has actively sought to attract home mortgage buyers among the illegals – with government help.
The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority finances the mortgages that Mitchell Bank and other lending institutions sell to their customers, including illegal aliens who have an ITIN.
Mitchell Bank has sold about 100 WHEDA loans in the past four years, most of them to undocumented immigrants.
The average household income of borrowers is $30,000 a year, and the mortgages have ranged from $30,000 to $100,000.
"More banks are following in Mitchell's path, helped by the FDIC, which has reached out to banks in the Midwest to encourage them to lend to immigrants, regardless of their legal status," the Journal reports.
Dozens of small banks in Illinois, Texas and other states have recently begun offering home loans to illegal immigrants, and big banks including Wells Fargo & Co. and Bank of America Corp. are planning to launch their own programs in the near future.
As NewsMax.com recently reported, Wells Fargo has more than half a million bank accounts opened by Mexican immigrants who get a "matricula" I.D. card from the Mexican consulate – and the company acknowledges that most account holders are undocumented aliens.
But Wisconsin state Sen. Glenn Grothman has introduced a bill to halt the lending program, saying it's wrong that the "government sets up a program specifically designed to benefit people who have chosen to ignore immigration laws."
And state Rep. Steve Kestell, who has introduced a similar bill in the House, declared: "Either we have immigration laws and we respect the laws, or we don't."
20+ million ILLEGAL aliens are in the United States of America.
Right now in the United States of America, ILLEGAL aliens have more rights than you do!

"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." --Theodore Roosevelt
"This nation is in danger of becoming a Third World nightmare with all the corruption, disease, illiteracy, violence and balkanization known all over the world. We need a 10-year moratorium on all immigration to catch our collective breath and we need deportation of over 10 million illegal aliens in a slow and orderly fashion." --Ed Garrison
“The 1987 amnesty was a failure; rather than reducing illegal immigration, it led to an increase,” FAIR stated. “Any new amnesty measure will further weaken respect for our immigration laws. Therefore, all amnesty measures must be defeated.” --Frosty Wooldridge
