The common sense argument may work for now, but eventually somebody is going to call you on it. Eventually, somebody is going to demand to see some real numbers.
Yes, they pay sales tax, noone ever denied that. You make it sound like illegals are some asset we can't afford to lose.
If your so go with numbers, you figure this out.
Illegals get paid less than the average working American.
Despite what they make, 50-75% of what they make is send back to where ever they came from.
Mexico make billions on their remittenses.
Now, what kind of benefit does that leave the USA with?

To address the OP - I really don't give a flyin' rat's a$$ if they pay taxes or NOT - they are HERE ILLEGALLY and should NOT be................that is the bottom line ............
