A California-based immigration reform organization is calling on the Senate to amend a bill recently passed by the House that makes it easier for illegal immigrants to access a federally funded program to provide healthcare to low-income children.

More than balanced by the taxes that the so called "illegals" pay.

What taxes? Surely you’re not referring to sales tax. The few who do pay taxes do so using a stolen SSN, which wreaks havoc in the lives of their victims. Furthermore, their paltry wages, coupled with their high number of exemptions, results in them paying zilch. They may be illiterate and low-skilled, but they certainly know how to play the system.

This ‘tax’ claim has been debunked so many times I’m actually surprised pro-illegals are still trying to use it. You’ve got the wrong audience.

Thank you! Taxes paid? Ha ha ha. If they aren't gaming it that way then they are getting paid cash under the table which has no tax at all, then when you count the amount going back as a remittance we need to remember the US isn't likely to see that money ever again.
