Actually illegal aliens pay very little in federal income tax. They declare five or six dependents so very little is taken out in federal income tax. Then when the tax man comes looking for them they disappear and pop up elsewhere with an entirely different social security number and a different name.

Of course you would say that, but do you have proof?
I know many Americans that do the same thing... So I guess we need to get rid of them as well. right?

The federal government will pursue an American citizen who fails to pay income taxes to the ends of the earth. You can claim dependants or not claim dependants, what matters is that you pay up come April 15.

No, you missed my point. I know ALOT of Americans that claim kids that are not theirs just to get more money. Thats my point.

Hispanics do pay TAXES, read below!!
Significant total taxes are paid by immigrants. Immigrant households paid an estimated $133 billion in direct taxes to federal, state, and local governments in 1997, according to a study by Cato Institute economist Steve Moore.

It's a tactic straight out of the illegal alien handbook.

In actuality, I have met illegals who have done exactly that. They have admitted it.
