This explains this better than anything I have seen to date, JOE Citizen (call him Joe Legal) — vs— PETE Weezle, (illegal from Canada) .
You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Pete Illegal.” Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.
Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes (and most likely union dues) deducted
Pete Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table.”
Ready? Now pay attention….
Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.
Pete Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year.
Pete Illegal pays no taxes. Pete Illegal now has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.

Pete Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program because the family shows no income.
Joe Legal’s children go home to an empty house because Mrs Citizen has to clean houses to make ends meet!.
Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal’s kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Joe has been paying for State Schools through his taxes. If Pete is an Eskimo, or some other group classified “minority” then, Pete Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority.
Joe Legal and Pete Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Pete did not pay.
Joe Legal makes too much to qualify for the Income Tax Credit! Pete Illegal gets a sizable tax refund using the number the IRS will recognize based on some stupid law the politicians passed to make illegal’s happy! (Yes! Didn’t you know the IRS gives a special number to illegals so they can claim their Income Tax Credit. Check it out if you don’t believe me.)
Do you see why Pete’s favorite saying is, “America, what a great country!”
I used to think Pete was a smart business man, with his house in Beverly Hills, and lavish life style! Now I know better!
Does One See The Bitter Problem? There are millions working this System and America is Broke.
If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens…you are part of the problem!
TOO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, we now know the (UN)-affordable Health Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaScare will be raising the cost of health care by $7,000 a year per family of four! Poor Joe Citizen, if we don’t stop this crazy ObamaScare, he can’t stretch any amount! It will all taken by the government!
