It will be interesting to see how many of these crooks are prosecuted. I won't hold my breath though.

To think that an Illegal Alien could buy land or a house in the US, using unconscionable lenders, bends then breaks every code of ethics the lenders are sworn to upkeep.

So I try to get to know her more, and the more I got to know the more I liked her, she wasnt a bad influence, nor a bad girl, neither was her family, and to my surprise I learn that her parents were actually paying taxes, and were actually doing everything else as legal as they could. So I ask you again, its this really fair for everybody. No I dont think so. Heck they should def. secure our borders, and see what we can do with the rest of the illegals, I propose that the gov' should get certain qualifications for those people and if they can't qualify than they should be deported.


DREAMie on, hahahaha!!!!! When you met the supposed parents of your supposed daughter's supposed friend, they made a point of explaining to you that they pay taxes?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Anyone who actually has kids would never talk about what is "fair" - that is child's talk.

I call shenanigans on this new poster.

Talk about paying zero taxes besides sales tax.
I think some of the "dreamies" who post on here claiming that they pay "taxes" don't understand the difference between the sales tax they pay on their happy meals at McD's and the taxes actual Americans pay on their income and property. To them, the $4.09 they paid on their pair of 7 for Mankind jeans is the same as the $3500+ a year I pay on property tax alone. Living at home with their illegal parents, and having their illegal mommies and daddies never around, they skipped that explanation. Maybe we could start a tax education series in Spanish that would air between telenovelas and Sabado Gigante.

I guess you're more credible than MSNBC.

My point was that dreamies don't know that "paying taxes" isn't universal. paying tax on purchases doesn't = paying income/property tax.

You countered my point with an article about illegals paying taxes.

If you don't see that I'm talking apples and you're talking bananas then the problem is in your court.

Time for a Wake Up Call, CurlyAngel

How in the world could the "Illegal Family" be paying taxes? Would you feel the same if they were using YOUR Social Security Account and other ID with their business?

Consider this . . . a close friend or family member is murdered (God forbid) and the case goes unsolved for ten plus years; then solved. Should the Common Criminal Thug, legal or otherwise, be excused and/or forgiven because he's been a nice guy for those ten years?

Illegals become Common Criminals as soon as they enter this country illegally and continue their criminal status with the use of Stolen IDs for employment as well as the abuse of our Social Systems.

Even though this thread is a mute point as the worker shouldn't be worrying about taxes, they shouldn't be working!

Regardless,


I guess they skipped the part about how they are being coached to make sure their employer signs them up as exempt so only a minimal amount is taken out. Max deductions would hit a taxpayer hard at the end of the year since they might owe a ton but if you don't file.....then?
