You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal.” Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15 cash “under the table.”

Ready? Now pay attention…

This written illustration is well done. Simple enough for most high school Americans to understand. Anti illegal immigration groups should verify the concepts and use it.

He should have also added that Jo Illegal’s boss makes extra profit on the house because he’s paying less wages and no benefits while Jo legal’s boss has less left over because of higher wages, taxes and benefits. Joe Illegal’s boss should be arrested then we wouldn’t have to worry about Joe Illegal.

I agree with the sentiment, but the first example of 30% doesn’t add up mathematically. The author had taken 40% off the top for taxes while stating it’s 30%.

May Day Marchers plotting to takeover the USA. Just here
for a better life. Inflicting Third World savagery on US citizens.

SIGN: "You owe us America. We will shoot more Arizona police until we get free."

L/E is looking for that guy---it's a crime to threaten violence. Stupid little brownster.

It took the conscience of Arizone to tell the world that the endemic to the Third World----drug-running, illiteracy, serfdom, slavery, ruling elites, armed street patrols, mob rule, bribery as a way of life----do not fly here.
