Immigration; Even A Liberal Can Understand
Looks like immigration is back in the news again. Once again we hear Liberals screaming for amnesty for all people here illegally, while Conservatives scream no amnesty for illegal’s. Here is a little story made simple so even a Liberal can understand it. However, will they, I doubt it.
There are two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”. Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California, or Florida, or Pennsylvania, or Nebraska — you get the idea.
Joe Legal works in construction has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
Jose 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.
Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose 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.
Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.
Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631 .00.
Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.
Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc..
Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month..
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 elementary 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.
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, while Jose Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Do you get it, now? It is hard for me to understand why Liberals just do not get it. Conservatives, do not hate immigrants, we hate illegal immigrants. Our nation was built on the backs of immigrants; it was immigrants that made this country the strongest country in the world. However, when we try to enforce the laws of this nation, Liberals start screaming that we are haters. Well I say let them scream all they want, we know what is right and we will keep on doing it. Liberal views and policies are responsible for our country falling apart. Legal immigrants in, illegal immigrants out. We need more Joe Arpaio’s in this country.
If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens… You are part of the problem!
It is way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!
This is one man’s opinion.
*Beautiful* in its simplicity and clarity.
Thank you for the blow-by-blow b*tch-slap American Leftists so dearly deserve.
Thanks Ed, But do you think the Liberals will ever understad? I for one don’t think so.
Why do we allow “trick or treat” 365 days a year? (more than any other country on the planet) These CRIMINAL TRESPASSERS knock on our door (or walk right in) & we fill their pocket/sacks with a map to the nearest Social Service location where the big treats are handed out. I’m as compassionate as the next, but I was taught that ‘charity begins at home’ At a time when we have citizens losing jobs & homes, being forced to the streets…is this honestly a time to take care of the illegal first. The flood of CRIMINALs crossing across our borders is causing many American Citizens to live in fear…NOT FREEDOM! It time to turn off the porch light & slam the door shut!!!!
I guess living in a border state does contribute to my opinion. But this problem is in every nook & cranny of the Great Nation. “Comprehensive’ indicates understanding & ‘do-able’ The laws are written in plain English. ENFORCEMENT of those laws will work just fine. ‘I like Ike” proved this in 1953.
