Legalize LA

What does this mean ? Everytime I wear one of these shirts I am asked this question . So this the last time imma explain it . .
There are about 12 million undocumented immigrants ( without papers ) living in the U.S. Almost all of them pay taxes into the system because their employers deduct taxes from their earnings. Billions of dollars are paid into social security alone which benefits America's elderly. What about the jobs generated by their demand for goods and services, or the positive effect their personal consumption has on the U.S. economy? Immigrants are students and entrepreneurs. They have families, homes, cars and lives, just like you. They are active members of the U.S. economy and society. They are not "invaders" and should not be treated like criminals. Everyone should be aware of how immigrants (legal or not) are woven into our everyday lives, and the growth and success of our country.
When you buy a Legalize LA t-shirt from American Apparel 100% of the net profits goes too Las Angeles immigrant rights groups . You should go out and get one . . They come in many colors .
