Maybe ask your friend how much of the taxes he pays in, does he get back at the end of the year. Working seasonally I am willing to bet it is all of it as well.
It will not let me rep you..

Most Hispanics are in the U.S. legally. Many have genealogies that go back further than most Europeans.

Mod Note:

So an illegal worker tells the ICE officials " No, Senor, you can not deport me yet because your government still owes me taxes I paid" ?

Frankly, if you wish to discuss illegal immigration issues, City Data has lovely Illegal Immigration forum set up for just that purpose; the Maine forum isn't the place.

And the discussion will have a lot more depth if the initial premise has a little more backing than just a generic "a friend told me" base.
