You suggest WalMart is getting "illegal money"? Really? Tell us about it

Haha of course not, I wish I knew. Just saying that untaxed money is ending up in their pockets most likely more than any other company in America.

The point is American workers shouldnt have to compete against slaves for jobs. The point is the American tax payer shouldnt have to subsidize companies and corporations that hire the slaves.

You have no proof of the economic benefit of illegal immigrant workers besides an assumption that 12 million immigrants must pay something in taxes, a dubious assumption at best. This forum is full of facts outlining the detrimental effects and costs of illegal immigrants on our society

I suspect that the '20+ million' figure includes the Anchor Babies who are de facto US citizens.

That stated: if 90% of the illegal immigrants left our country tomorrow; I would be ecstatic

I hate walmart and most of what they stand for. That said I don't believe they receive money from illegal sources. They manipulate the market to their favor. They force manufacturers to produce products sell them at cost to walmart. They are devious and ruthless. The owners live in states that dont require them to pay personal income tax. This is all true Walmart has been caught using illegals for labor. They should be fined to the max for such practices. But over all they are above board.

No illegal aliens pay their cost. In fact most of us do not pay enough taxes to cover our share of government benefits. 80% of the tax revenue in America comes from business and the 10% wealthiest Americans.

So that makes it alright to pile on more people that dont pay for their own children's education? Only THESE people have no business being here.

In my state, the per pupil cost of education is $12K - $15K in the wealthy school districts, $15K - $20K in the poor school districts (where the illegals live). If a day laborer has 3 kids, that cost is $45k - $60K to the tax payers. Even if he did pay taxes (which is unlikely) his paltry 2K or 3K wouldn't even come close. I dont complain about paying for the education of poor American children, but we dont deserve the extra baggage from people who shouldn't be here in the first place.

From the original post

Just think how many tax dollars per year in income tax this would be. Figuring on a 50,000 salary this would be somewhere in the 9,000 range. Now granted, most of the illegals will never make anywhere near this amount but even 2,000 per year times 12 million is 24 billion. What kind of programs could we run on this?

To this

So why do employed illegals pay enough billions in taxes like you claim in your first post to justify their sukin on the gubment teat. Then in the quote you say business pays all the taxes and payroll contributions are insignificant. You are all over the place depending on which corner weve argued you into. And as a poster above says this doesnt even take into account the property taxes that run our counties citys and schools, police & fire departments etc...

You are misreading the post. This is money lost from the illegals not paying taxes. You appear to think I have said the government makes this from illegals. Read again and please use a dictionary. Thanks
