Thought this was interesting...
Here is an example of why hiring illegal aliens is not economically productive for the State of California...
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
"Jose Illegal" also works in construction, has "NO" Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "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 is not 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 and is eligible for Food Stamps and Welfare.
Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays rent of $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 = $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.
Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school.
Joe Legal pays for his children's' lunches while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch.
Jose Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same Police and Fire Services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Also consider the fact that there are some illegal immigrants/aliens that "buy" a Social Security Number illegally from American frauds who sell them. Those immigrants/aliens use those Social Security Numbers to get "legit" jobs. Those illegal immigrants/aliens get a job that pays (for example) 40k annually. Social Security is taken out of these "legit" incomes. These Social Security witholdings total about 60,000,000,000.00 annually. Because the identity of these illegal immigrants/aliens cannot be reconciled to their actual identity, those SS witholdings ARE NEVER COLLECTED. Where does this money go? It goes one of two places: It is absorbed into the national debt, or In the event of notional budget overflow, the money is held indefinitely until such time as national debt occurs, or budget changes are made that require this money.
In short, the government is making an average of $60 BILLION off of illegal immigrants/aliens every year!!!!!
Please take into consideration these statements before voting for/supporting any governmental leadership that would support illegal immigrants/aliens.
Folks, there's a right way and a wrong way to be an American. Granted, the process of becoming an American needs a LOT of work, and it is a tedious (and sometimes ridiculous) undertaking, but you don't rob a bank to make a living do you? So why cheat the citizens of America (and possibly yourself) by supporting those in power (or potentially in power) that would allow such things to occur?
p.s. A BIG "congratulations" to my friend, Jose G. and my other friends who have suffered the process of becoming an American the proper way. You guys (and gals) rock! You'll make better American than most of us!
just a thought:)
