Big difference. Clark is depicted as living the life of an American citizen - going to college, being employed by a reputable newspaper. That sort of life require one to be in the system. It's a rather different kind of life. It's not like he is paid cash to clean someone's house or do manual labour. You cannot really equate Clark with real life illegal immigrants.
