Is this where we're supposed to post the pic of Jan Brewer pointing her finger at Obama? Lame.

Re: Can someone tell me what an illegal immigrant looks like?

Here is an example of why hiring illegal aliens is not economically productive for the State of California...or any other state for that matter.



You have 2 families... "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families have 2 parents, 2 children, and live in California.

"Joe Legal" works in construction, has a Social Security Number, and makes $25.00 per hour with payroll taxes deducted.... "Jose Illegal" also works in construction, has "NO" Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash per hour "under the table".

Joe Legal... $25.00 per hour x 40 hours $1000.00 per week, $52,000 per year... Now take 30% away for state & federal tax... Joe Legal now has $31,231.00

Jose Illegal... $15.00 per hour x 40 hours $600.00 per week, $31,200.00 per year... Jose Illegal pays no taxes... Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00

Joe Legal pays Medical and Dental Insurance with limited coverage $1000.00 per month $12,000.00 per year Joe Legal now has $19,231.00


Jose Illegal has full Medical and Dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00

Joe Legal makes too much money to be eligible for Food Stamps or welfare - Joe Legal pays for food $1,000.00 per month $12,000.00 per year - Joe Legal now has $7,231.00

Jose Illegal has no documented income, so he is eligible for Food Stamps and Welfare -
Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00

Joe Legal pays rent $1,000.00 per month - $12,000.00 per year Joe Legal is now in the hole minus (-) $4,769.00

Jose Illegal receives a $500 per month Federal rent subsidy... Jose Illegal pays rent $500.00 per month (section 8 housing) $6,000.00 per year - Jose Illegal still has $25,200.00

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work or his wife must work. Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family (and eat out!).

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored breakfast & lunch, and they also qualify to be bused to school at taxpayer expense.

Jose Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal's children have to find a way to get to school and go home after school as, "latch-key kids" with no adult supervision.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

Jose Illegal can send most of his money back home to Mexico to build a new home for retirement, and have money to buy a new truck
(and still have Medi-Cal benefits while living in a foreign country; until someone turns him in to authorities....if they ever find out)

Joe Legal is still in the hole.

Any questions?

Check a couple of posts up. Her doing it was lame but I've heard some people say she didn't go far enough.

Joe Legal is being fucked by the system.

Jose Illegal is fucking the system.

Jose Illegal is doing the right thing. At great risks, he went illegally in a foreign country so he and his family could escape misery in his own country. What would you do if you were in his shoes?

How can you blame someone for trying to live the American Dream?

If you want to blame someone or something, then blame capitalism, blame the "real" Americans who are hiring illegal immigrants.These things are happening only because paying someone "under the table" is a sound, logical and profitable business practice.

Not blaming anyone in what I wrote.

I was making an observation, not a condemnation.

Your observations are perceptive, and I agree with all of them except who to blame.

Turning The United States of America into Mexico is not the answer. What is Unique about the U.S.A under The Constitution is not "Capitalism," it is Free Enterprise and the Rule of Law.

What is wrong with the U.S.A. is precisely the degree to which Attorneys and other scabrous and unscrupulous knaves subverted those principles so that they could feed like ticks off the body politic.

Under the Constitution, Attorneys cannot serve as Congressmen, Senators, or dog catchers, but they have managed to infest, infect, corrupt and destroy the best government on the face of the earth since the Rule of Judges in ancient Israel.
