As the debate over illegal immigration continues to rage, some pundits and policymakers are claiming that unauthorized immigrants do not pay taxes and rely heavily on government benefits. Neither of these claims is borne out by the facts. Undocumented men have work force participation rates that are higher than other workers, and all undocumented immigrants are ineligible for most government services, but pay taxes as workers, consumers, and residents

Correct me if I'm wrong but, in general, is it not true that:

You can't pay taxes unless you have an SSI#.

If youre illegal and have an SSI#, you stole it.


If you're living 10 to a single house, you're not paying your fair share of property tax (directly through ownership or indirectly through rent to a landlord).

If you have KIDS and are illegal, your kids will drain taxes in social services in amounts greater than you'll ever manage to pump back into the system through the types of jobs illegals do at depressed wages.

If you're sending away 50% of your income to your home country, that's 50% you WON'T be investing IN AMERICA or consuming IN America and paying sales tax.

If you're illegal without health insurance, one "free" trip to the ER can wipe out an entire year's worth of "taxes paid."

How many of the thousands of illegal mexicans that are in our American prisons pay taxes? How many of thousands of illegal mexican gandbangers pay taxes? How many of the thousands of illegal pregnant mexicans who come here to give birth pay taxes? How many of the thousands of illegal mexican drug runners pay taxes? How many of the illegal mexicans who are now growing weed in our National Parks pay taxes? I go go on N' on.. but it makes me sick writing about it!

Nope, they pay taxes with IRS provided ITIN numbers.

It's been documented over and over that illegal aliens are an absolutely huge burden on this country. Not only that, but their children usually grow up to be burdens on society as well.

And for the very few that actually do pay taxes properly, the national treasury doesn't gain anything because the illegal alien is simply stealing a job from an American that would have paid the taxes anyway.

Really? Are you just going to say it or are you going to provide facts and rsearch to back up your claims.
