    What is happening in California will happen to the US....our legislators want to give these people a FREE pass....and then you and I continue to pay for it....kind of puts things in perspective.....

    Here is an example of why hiring illegal aliens is not economically productive for the State of California ...or any other state for that matter.

    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 & 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

    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 to be 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, so he 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 or his wife must 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
    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 Mexico 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 Legal is still in the hole.

    Any questions what is going to happen to our country,,,,just look at CA and what welfare has done to their state!!!!
