This is just wrong too...and employer can't "hide" that kind of expense. So they do one of two things...the still take taxes out but use a fake SSN...and "Jose Illegal" never gets a return. OR They use one valid SSN and pay "Jose Illegal" $25 an hour just like "Joe Legal" gets...but he shares that with his 4 illegal friends...so they all still make $5 an hour. $5/hour at 40 hours = $200 a week or 10400 a year. PLUS he still has taxes taken out....so $7280 a year. The whole beginning premise of this hypothetical is wrong...illegals are not making $15 an hour...that is funny.


This is by far the most reasonable and believable circumstance towards how illegals are paid.

Says the guy changing entire words to shift the intended meaning to suit his purpose.

The picture is obviously fake, and you can clearly read the reply with TECHNICAL explanations as to how that determination is valid.

But you're still ignoring that ignorance exists on both sides, and would rather deny the ignorance on your side than admit it's just as ignorant as the other side.


And you still can't justify the rhetoric in the video, you can't have it both ways, I'm a bigot with no leg to stand on, yet there is a video proving my point.

Just to point out, Joe Legal needs a new tax preparer, and someone needs to tell him he doesn't pay 30% of his wages in taxes. 1) 52,000 (yearly salary) - 11,400 (married filing jointly) - 14,600 (3,650 per exemption) leaves him with a taxable income of 26,000.

Assuming he has no further deductions (medical, property taxes, mortgage) this gives him a tax bill of 3,069 for the year. Subtract the child tax credit of 2,000 and that brings the total tax to 1,069, for a total of 2.056% of his income.

My question.... are all your other facts as skewed as this one????

That is exactly what I stated in my post above. I agree 100% and can easily prove how easy it is to "fake" a digital picture that nobody can tell the difference on.

The thing is that these aren't "facts"...this is a stupid chain email that has been going around for awhile with no sources to back up the claims.

Do you notice the OP doesn't have a link to his source for this lillte story???

That is because he probably got it out of his email.

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


I stopped reading here.

Find me an illegal that gets paid 15 dollars under the table and I'll send you my left leg.

And considering the whole point of illegal workers is for cheap labour, I'll be waiting a while.

Yes I can see that now, thanks for the heads up, and your right, seems like nowadays we can all just write up any old thing and see how many people fall for it.

Are you willfully blind to the fact I stated clearly in reply to the video that ignorance exists on both sides. Seeing as BOTH sides of an item equates to a whole (yay math?) then La Razza and the video would be included.

Why are you trying to bait me into stating I excuse the video? I never claimed I did. So there is no reason to justify it.

It is, as I said. As inexcusable as someone citing a photoshopped picture to support their claim. ie, you

Wake up.



I don't know if that guy is COINTELPRO or what but we should take any threat seriously.

Anyone familar with La Raza " The Race " They have a plan to take over the southwestern US.

La Raza Violent Threats Ignored, Tea Party Protesters Considered Dangerous Threat to America

Illegals are a threat!

Forgive me if I am "naive" but if they are UNDOCUMENTED how do they APPLY for state welfare? Do they show their mexican id or what? Don't the state officials report these people to INS? Don't they get deported? Doesn't the employer VIOLATE inter-state commerce laws by hiring illegals? Doesn't he have to pay a fine?



You've reiterated the real issue here very nicely. People scream, "OMG...they are on foodstamps and welfare!", without even taking into account WHO THE HELL is giving them the foodstamps and welfare. Same goes for the jobs. Hehehehe...."They jerk er jerb!!!" I love that episode. Matt and Trey are brilliant.

Once again blaming the actions and ideas of a few extremists on the many who LOOK like them.

You honestly think the majority of illegal immigrants are all part of some devious scheme to take over? I like your straw man, it's pretty. Will you build me one too?

Apparently this point has gotten lost in the back patting atta boy feel good frenzy here.


There is a radical element crossing the boarder, just ask Robert Krentz.

The US/Mexican border is a murderous cesspool, corruption and lawlessness the norm.

With the sense of entitlement demonstrated in the video I posted, you guys know the one, the one you have chosen to ignore, without border control, where does this end?

Propose your theories to the legal residents of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, S California as to why their crime rate is skyrocketing.I'm sure they'll feel relieved.


And when you're done let's all hold hands and dream of rainbows and puppies.

Did you read the story? What La Raza is talking about is Sedition and a Complete take over.

The ones that are here Illegally must be Deported and the Border must be secured!

Business that hire and suport them Fined.

Americans wake up we are being invaded.

If they were BORN HERE, they are not CROSSING the boarder... Just ask Dictionary.com

My theory as to why?

1. Cannabis is illegal, and Americans like it. Can only be obtained through illegal cartels.

2. Police are refusing to do their job and go after actual criminals.

As an Arizonan. I feel relieved.

I havent read all of the responses here, so I apologize if this is a repeat.

However, until there is some sort of comprehensive plan to reduce the amount of undocument, illegal immigrants that live and work in the US, there is only one real way to insure that they do their part to benefit society.

When the government starts spouting off about raising taxes, taxing the poor to pay the rich, take from this to pay that...etc, they are only hurting the legal citizens that pay into the system. If they would revamp the system to give tax breaks on income, they could then roll those over into taxes on products. They could then reduce the income tax burden on the middle class worker by a fictional number of 10%, but apply a 2% tax increase on goods and claim a greater tax influx without placing that burden squarely on the shoulders of the middle class working populace.

Since illegals have to purchase just like legals do, this spreads out the tax burden to a greater percentage of people in more than one tax bracket. The rich, the middle and the lower income individuals would all see a slight increase in product pricing, but would realize a significant increase in personal income to compensate.

In this, our corporatist/capitalist society, when people have more, they spend more, which means others have more and spend more.

Make sense?
