What the people of America want is for immigrants to enter the country legally

According to the article 1 million immigrants are paying taxes. That means that about 1 in 12 illegals are paying taxes. I believe that number needs to come up quite a bit before American citizens will stop complaining.
I had no info to back up my claim of not paying taxes but I have to say that I was not far off.
According to the IRS, the number of taxpayer-identification numbers assigned annually in the U.S. has risen from 615,414 in 1999 to 1,837,583 in 2009. More than 7.8 million have been distributed in the past five years. Last year, 2,030,699 tax returns were filed using tax-identification numbers - by both immigrants here legally and undocumented workers.
