I wish this were original to me

But since it's not, I will just share what was sent to me by my friend Ros.
Subject: FW: Joe Legal
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 deducted....
"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 and 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 20.
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 $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. 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 while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored breakfast & lunch, and they also qualify to be "bused to school" at tax payer 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 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 will be lucky if he has any money for retirement, a new vehicle, medical/dental benefits, or a place to live.
I have done the math, all you have to do is to look at it yourself.
Don't hire illegal aliens.....
Don't vote for any politician that supports illegal aliens.....
And most important of all, write your politicians and let them know how you feel
PS: You forgot, Jose illegal's wife claims "single, no head of Household" and collects additional benefits that Joe legal's wife cannot claim. No wonder our country is in trouble!! Think about it!
The government cannot give to anyone anything that it does not first take.....from someone else.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The left can say we are the wealthy americans making it worse on the others, but my car is about to blow up. My paycheck is feeding the legal children,(and the illegal ones too) and my shoes have holes in them. Yup, I am wealthy!

As I make my way through the list of my mothers "friends" reading thier posts, I can't help but laugh, (Tatersmama) cry, (Henya) and say right on (blue pitbull) no wonder mommy loves you all. I will try to visit everyone this week. Weather permitting. the weeds are already 4 feet tall, and I am wondering if the HOA will say anythin or if they are truly picking on my friends.

too bad we can't all be Joe illegals. we work hard and make good money but, theres is none left over and we run short now for the first time. we have made so many cuts to our personal budget. we pay high medical premiums and can't afford to go to the docotrs because of high copays. Our taxes are so high and we can't afford to pay our back taxes but, our state of Ct. can just go in and wipe out our accounts. it just happened to us they left us with 1 dollar and took all our mortgage payment.
Its time for us all to help out our president and take the necessary steps to get our economy back.
thanks for the post.

Bet you would not want to be illegal anyway! Sorry I have been there. No one stays illegal because they want to. Also illegal aliens are not eligible for any of the benefits you mentioned. Sorry, but true. And then there is the IRS! Please, I am not even going to start on those guys. And illegal get payed from $2.00 an hour and on. How many Americans would go for it? What about working 16 hours a day and then sleeping in the restaurant and being charged lodging by the Boss? Most of us would not be willing to do that. I would take hard-working, honest, illegals any day of the week over my drug-smocking, murder-minded, bigots neighbours. Remember they - illegals give to this country a lot, take very little, do you know that I have payed medicaid, unemployment and disability for three year while not being eligible for them. And that is after I had my green card.
America is the land of immigrants - but somehow it became "first come, first served".
Sorry, just my opinion.
