While you may be right there is no written law that says Americans must pay income taxes.

Let us not forget that while Illegals (when this term is used as of late it usually pertains to Mexicans) are not the only ones who abuse the system thank you, end of story. I have personally seen the numbers of non-Mexican individuals whom use and abuse our "system" usually young unwed mothers that did not think ahead so for their mistake I must pay for it?

Without prompting, Ruiz brings up the million-dollar question: “I don’t see assimilation,” he says. “They want to hold on [to Hispanic culture].” Ruiz thinks that today’s Mexican immigrant is a “totally different kind of person” from the past. Some come with a chip on their shoulder toward the United States, he says, which they blame for the political and economic failure of their home countries. Rather than aggressively seizing the opportunities available to them, especially in education, they have learned to play the victim card, he thinks. Ruiz advocates a much more aggressive approach. “We need to explain, ‘We’ll help you assimilate up to a certain point, but then you have to take advantage of what’s here.’ ”

Ruiz’s observations will strike anyone who has hired eager Mexican and Central American workers as incredible. I pressed him repeatedly, insisting that Americans see Mexican immigrants as cheerful and hardworking, but he was adamant. “We’re creating an underclass,” he maintained

When you get out of college and get a good paying job, try not paying and see what happens.....I'm sure the IRS will be glad to show you the laws on paying taxes....

All 50 states need laws similar to either Arizona or Oklahoma to make life a living hell here for illegals-------and, the Anchor Baby loophole needs to be closed (with a grandfather clause for those kids born prior to the cutoff date).

Good news:

About this, I'm glad to report you're mistaken.

Exactly. That guy is pretty clueless. Since when can illegals afford to live in multi-million dollar homes with out having multi-million dollar jobs?!

My God, what has happened to our education system?!!

Let me introduce you to the Sixteenth Amendment to the US Constitution:

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

This gives Congress the right to collect income tax. For specific law, you can read the Internal Revenue Code: Tax Code, Regulations and Official Guidance

Explain to me why the Movie America to Facism was created, and Wesley Snipes was acquitted. No, I did not learn this at school.
