BAKERSFIELD, Caif. -- A text message hoax sent shockwaves through the Hispanic immigrants Wednesday. The text advised Hispanics to stay away from Walmart, or else they'll be rounded up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

The message claims that Walmart gave immigration offiicals permission to go into their stores on March 20 and trap immigrants. The message adds: Support the hispanic movement, don't shop at Walmart and to spread the word.
