do you think that the biggest problem with immigrants is them sending money back to their families?

Question by Shane: do you think that the biggest problem with immigrants is them sending money back to their families?
ok first tell me if i understand the economy. its like a water system the money being water and people being both containers and pumps moving the water(money) from one place to another, so in theory everyone should eventually get water(money) so the whole system works. and the immigrants sending money out of country is like a leak draining the system (economy) of its resources

    thats not the problem because the money is converted… we dont actually lose it… the problem is they work 3 or 4 jobs to support their family of 15 diminishing the job supply for people who want at least 1 to survive and provide for their normal family of 3 or 4

    So your only complaint is that they allow illegals to keep the money they earn.

    The biggest problem with illegal immigrants is their presence in the country, period.

  • goobersmooch

    They take jobs away from legal citizens

    This county is meant for equal opportunity for all. That includes immigrants. If they make money, its their money to do whatever they want to with it. Who are you to tell them to keep it here?

    Illegal immigrants are another issue. They negatively affect the system.

    Not immigrants.

    You analogy is totally wrong.

    First off, they are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens. Immigrants connotes some compliance with the law, illegal aliens disregard the law because it doesn’t suit them/they don’t feel like it/insert another excuse here.

    How about this analogy.
    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
    $ 25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
    Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
    And gets paid $ 15.00 cash “under the table”.
    Ready? Now pay attention….
    Joe 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; Joe Legal now has
    $ 31,231.00.
    Jose Illegal: $ 15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $ 600.00 per week, or
    $ 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 for
    His family at $ 600.00 per month, or $ 7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now
    Has $ 24,031.00.
    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 and is not eligible for food stamps or
    Welfare. Joe Legal pays $ 500.00 per month for food, or $ 6,000.00 per
    Year. Joe Legal now has $ 18,031.00.
    Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps
    And welfare. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.
    Joe Legal pays rent of $ 1,200.00 per month, or $ 14,400.00 per year. Joe
    Legal now has $ 9,631.00.
    Jose Illegal receives a $ 500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose
    Illegal pays out that $ 500.00 per month, or $ 6,000.00 per year. Jose
    Still has $ 31,200.00.
    Joe Legal pays $ 200.00 per month, or $ 2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal
    Now has $ 7,231.00.
    Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has
    $ 31,200..00.
    Joe Legal has to make his $ 7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline,
    Jose Illegal has to make his $ 31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities,
    Gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
    Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
    Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
    Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe
    Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get
    A government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal’s children have an after
    School ESL program. Joe Legal’s children go home.
    Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
    But Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
    Jose with his free tax payer entitlements makes $ 65,000.00 a year!

    Now you see why lawful citizens are fed up.

    No, its them using up public resources paid for by taxpayers. Like falling on the mercy of trauma centers for their medical emergencies.

    We have many leaks nowadays, remember when factories were in the USA, now they are in other countries, when the products sell here the Corps move the money offshore, no tax revenues for the Government, thats why we are having such short falls in the budgets, no jobs, no taxes, and manufacturing creates 16 other jobs per manufacturing job, outsourcing, not a job in the USA, so no taxes for the Government, illegal immigrants work for cash, no taxes for the Government, who is go to pay to run things?

    When I was young and naive, I thought that money belonged to the bearer. Wrong. Money is what the government allows you to use. It really isn’t yours to just do with as you please. So the real problem with illegals having money isn’t the fact that they support their families, it is the fact that they ummm well, aaaa, you know, you just can’t have people running around with loose money that the government doesn’t control…..
