Read this on FB and wanted to repost and share with you. What do you think about this?

"Mr. Legal vs. Mr. Illegal

You have two families: "Mr. Legal" and "Mr. Illegal" . Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Mr. Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Mr. Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table."

Ready? Now pay attention...

Mr. 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; Mr. Legal now has $31,231.00.

Mr. Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. Mr. Illegal pays no taxes. Mr. Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Mr. Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Mr. Legal now has $24,031.00.

Mr. Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Mr. Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Mr. 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. Mr. Legal now has $18,031.00.

Mr. Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Mr. Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Mr. Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Mr. Legal now has 9,631 .00.

Mr. Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Mr. Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Mr. Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

Mr. Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Mr. Legal now has $7,231.00.

Mr. Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.

Mr. Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc..

Mr. Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

Mr. Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Mr. Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family and friends.

Mr. Legal's and Mr. Illegal's children both attend the same elementary school. Mr. Legal pays for his children's lunches, while Mr. Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch. Mr. Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Mr. Legal's children go home.

Now, when they reach college age, Mr Legal's kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Mr Legal has been paying for State Schools through his taxes, while Mr. Illegal's kids "go to the head of the class" because they are a minority.

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

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens... You are part of the FREAK'n problem!

We need to keep this going--we need to make changes ASAP!

It's way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

This is not a 'racial' issue, or to prevent any 'racial minority' from living and working in the U.S., the issues here are LEGALITY and EQUALITY. If you don't understand the difference between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigration, or paying a certain percentage of your income as taxes, as everybody else, to support the benefits you get from living in this country, you should not be allowed to vote in any election...EVER!"

EDIT: I did not write this. I read it on FB and reposted to get people's opinions. Im not saying it's right I'm not saying it's wrong. Everyone has different and rather interesting opinions.

yes because it really is as easy as abc to live here illegally or to even become legal!! The problem isn't someone who supports illegals, the problem is how damn difficult the government makes it for the illegal man who want to be legal to become legal.

 What you miss is this...

If Mr. Illegal is indeed that... an illegal immigrant... he has no documentation that would provide him such government resources. No FS, no housing subsidies, no insurance, no cash benefits, etc...

Now provided Mr. Illegal is in fact a citizen... most programs will not provide such resources unless you have a legitimate reason as to why you are out of work, thus already approved by board of state doctors for (permanent) disability (SSD), or you are showing an active pursuit to obtain employment, as such is documented by every future employer said person does apply with. ~ This means that once Mr. Illegal drops off of the application, or at the time of interview, a form is signed (by potential employer or associated staff) stating the individual did indeed apply.  Any benefits given durring this time are limited (in most states) to only a 3 month time frame.

Just a consideration.

My family is Mexican but I'm third generation born here. When I hear illegal I immediately think Mexicans lol while reading this I honestly didn't know what to think. First I thought hey the "illegal" works hard for his money but reading along.....so does the "legal". I don't understand why the "illegal" is able to get their work money and then some......I thought you had to be "legal" to get government assistance? The whole system is just screwed up. I am a single "legal" mom just barely getting by. I make too much to get government assistance but not enough to get by, struggling to make ends meet. While "illegal" get more and more money for "not working" (when they do) and "cheating the system" they don't have a care in the world and just keep popping out kids and getting even more help! I could go on and on.....
