SEE IF I GOT THIS RIGHT!!!These things are possible in totalitarian regimes. The rulers get to decide what they want to do. Or what not to do. So, is our poster suggesting that we become a totalitarian regime? Personally, I say if he wants to live in one, he's welcome to move. If he brings enough money, most of these regimes will accept him as a citizen, and give him the "special treatment" he feels like he deserves.

IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY
YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.
Interestingly? For "Cuba", the original picture on the post was of Ataturk (Turkey's patriarch), with the flag of Turkey. But, I suppose that one foreign country is the same as any other to our viral email author...
IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET !!!Yes, there are employers who will break the law. Once they're caught, they're out of a job of course. And, of course, because an employer isn't hiring someone legally, they're not entitled to any workplace protections. Unless their workplace is shut down and the illegal immigrant is deported.
A DRIVERS LICENSE,Not legally, in any state. At least any that are acceptable forms of identification.
SOCIAL SECURITY CARDCan you check with the Department of Social Security, and tell us how they would do this? Without breaking the law?
WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS,According to FAIR (no friend of immigration benefits in general), "Illegal immigrants are barred from the following federal public benefits: grants, contracts, loans, licenses, retirement, welfare, health, disability, public or assisted housing, post secondary education, food assistance, and unemployment benefits."
CREDIT CARDS,No federal law needed. It's bad business to issue loans to folks with unstable and undocumented incomes.
SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE, FREE EDUCATION, FREE HEALTH CARE,Again, not from the government, according to FAIR. As for private organizations? Pretty stupid to give these things to people who aren't here legally.
A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTONIs there anyone who isn't allowed to lobby? Seems like a law against that would run into problems. You know, that whole pesky "freedom of speech" thing...
BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGEThat seems like a "made up" number. And, of course, isn't designed to benefit legal immigrants. At all.
THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT
Darn, that right to free speech! We should end that! Just like they do in North Korea, Iran...
AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE.Not without government-issued identification. And they still haven't explained how they could obtain it legally.
I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD A FIRM GRASP ON THE SITUATION !!!News flash: You don't. Sure, some of these things can be obtained illegally. When they do, punish 'em and deport 'em, I say. But there are no government giveaways here.
And, like I said: If that isn't enough for you? Feel free to move to North Korea, Iran, China, or whatever country you think is doing it "right".
