Furthermore, undocumented immigrants pay an average of $11.64 billion in state and local taxes each year. And with more than 200,000 initial DACA recipients in California, ending DACA would eliminate an estimated $433.4 billion in GDP over the next decade.

We are a nation of immigrants, and treating undocumented people with dignity and respect is not just the right thing to do morally – it is the prudent thing to do financially.

Villaraigosa: Do immigrants cost or support California?

Mr V: those people you're talking about are ILLEGAL aliens.

Too, the comments under the main article I linked are almost all AGAINST anything for illegals except deportation. Period.

I love magical stories too, but where are the unicorns? What is the point of a fairy tale without unicorns?

So the illegals pay 11.64 billion in taxes. How does that compare to the couple hundred billion in benefits they receive?

There are millions of immigrants that came to America by following the rules and laws of the land.

In short why should these illegal immigrants get a pass for cutting the line and breaking the law?

The bleeding hearts can hold up anything they want such as this tax assumption but in the end undocumented people who live on the edge are not good for a cohesive society.

They need to follow the laws like we all do.

Nope, that $11.64 billion is for the entire U.S. Here's a link to Villaraigosa's source…
https://itep.org/wp-content/uploads/immigration2016.pdf

For comparison, a 2011 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) cobbled together some numbers from 2004 through 2009 and claimed that "illegal aliens" contributed $3.97 billion per year to state and local tax coffers. Here's a link to it…

Def a real GOOD reason to chase illegal aliens out of the US, their kind are leeches when it gets down to it. We'd be almost 8 billion richer.

Considering the "methodologies" that the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy and Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) use to come up with their numbers, both sources should probably be taken with a "grain of salt."

And they send $23 billion to Mexico, for starters.

YOU used "FAIR" as your source so, you must think it's legit. Don't try to back out now. lol
