My 2 cents.
The client and you, should be charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, if in anyway you give advice or implement any actions that suborn these actions.
I would tell your client to call the INS and get this person deported. I would also report the employer to the police for breaking the law. But of course this is only me. AN AMERICAN.
They(yes almost all of them-construction super here-turn them in as often as possible) report their income and pay taxes for one purpose only. They claim outrageous amounts of children and collect more money than they pay in. This is not tax evasion, a lower offense, but tax fraud.
She has a much better chance if she can prove that he's been a good citizen abiding by the rules.
And this is really where you piss me off, a good citizen? CITIZEN?
I suppose you are a lawyer too? Both of you should be disbarred if so. You are committing a crime. NUFF SAID

If he was such a "good citizen" he wouldn't be here ILLEGALLY in the first place.
No amount of money paid to the government (in this case in the form of alleged paid taxes) should pardon any person that commits a crime. Being in this country illegally is a crime.
Therefore, he should immediately be reported to the proper authorities and deported before he can even say "but..."

Illegals are not the problem as so many people want to demonize them. they would in fact be a solution if someone would get on the ball and make them LEGAL, and stop with your two faces they broke the law crap, that is such a tired excuse, you break the law every day as so many others and to different degrees, laws depending on what they are obviously NEED to be there, but some laws are just plain old STUPID

there is no laws and penalties is so ridiculous I can't read anymore. laws and penalties are for the stupid and poor, if you have ENOUGH money and power its nothing but a cost of doing business.
beating up illegals with the "you broke the law" club needs to be used on you for being a parot for the law abiding polititians and bankers..... LOL that is such a oxy moron its funny even when I write it.

He should be charged with tax fraud, then deported. If he is illegal, how did he file a return? He clearly wasn't working for a chain restaurant, because even McDonald's won't hire illegals. The franchisee has too much to lose if they get caught.
Foreign workers who are illegal aliens are subject to U.S. taxes in spite of their illegal status. U.S. employers or payers who hire illegal aliens may be subject to various fines, penalties, and sanctions imposed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Commentary: Social Security is about math, not Mexicans
By Ruben Navarrette Jr.
Special to CNN
SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) -- For more than a decade, I've written about the need to reform Social Security. And I've blamed older generations of Americans for not fixing a program they know is unsustainable into the future.
My bad. It turns out, if I wanted to get everyone up in arms, all I needed to do was blame illegal immigrants.
Ah, yes. The folks who, we are told, wrecked our schools, ruined our environment and lowered our wages are now poised to steal our Social Security.
Oh, there's some stealing going on all right, but it doesn't have anything to do with illegal immigrants.
Here's the drill: Social Security is an intergenerational shakedown. Every generation pays for the preceding one. Sixty-nine million baby boomers have no problem paying for the World War II generation because, well, there are 69 million of them. But imagine the burden on younger workers of having to keep legions of aging flower children in a comfy retirement.
In 1946, the cost of supporting one retiree was split between 42 workers. Now, we're approaching the point where two workers will support each retiree. The trouble begins in 2016 when -- according to experts -- more will be going out in benefits than will be coming in as payroll taxes.
This is what I worry about -- the math. But, for others, the worry is about something altogether different -- the Mexicans.
Immigration restrictionists are apoplectic over the news that the United States has entered into a "totalization" agreement with Mexico. Under these agreements, which the United States has with 21 other countries, workers who work in two countries during their careers can combine what they earned in both places to qualify for retirement benefits under one or both systems. The restrictionists insist that the U.S. government has conspired with Mexico to let illegal immigrants loot the Social Security system.
That would be quite a charge, if true. But these pacts apply only to people who are working legally.
The worry is that, if Congress passes guest-worker legislation that gives some number of illegal immigrants a "work-authorized" Social Security number, the worker might be in a position, if he met eligibility requirements, to apply for Social Security benefits, including those earned while in the country illegally.
Supporters of totalization point out that current U.S. law bans illegal immigrants from collecting Social Security benefits.
They're right about that. But there is no law prohibiting illegal immigrants with bogus Social Security numbers from paying into the system, something they and their employers do to the tune of more than $7 billion per year in payroll taxes.
That's money the illegal immigrants will never see again, and it has for years helped to keep the entitlement program afloat. So Social Security lives off ill-gotten goods -- the stolen taxes of millions of people, and the assumption that they'll never be claimed.
How odd that the closed-border, closed-mind crowd isn't nearly as troubled by this part of the equation.
