Ready? Now pay attention....

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

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

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

John Legal and Juan Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but John paid for them and Juan did not pay. Juan is basically stealing these services

I think that if hungry kids are fed, then I'm ok. If welfare disbanded, the government would still take that money. I think that karma will catch up to those abusing the broken system. I think that those not abusing the system are raising a better generation. I think Juan's kids have probably never seen a doctor. And, if john's kids work hard, they'll get the scholarship.
