LEGAL OR ILLEGAL. How do you tell a hard-working American from a hard working illegal alien? Hard working illegal alien pays cash for a house while working a minimum wage job. (I know one) commits fraud against the DMV by illegal passing smog for cars. (I know one) They drive Lexus and Escalades and expensive SUVs with $5,000 wheels, up to ER and welfare offices. They wear expensive designer cloths, cell phones and I Pods. Hard-working Americans are just the opposite. If Arizona cops stopped 10 Mexicans, 9 will be illegal. How can you tell an illegal aliens who is a criminal from a hard-working illegal alien who isn’t? YOU CAN’T.
