First, NO illegal pays 'income taxes' legally, period. EVER (and those are the taxes that support welfare programs ... not gas taxes or sales taxes
or any other taxation)
yes, they pay tax on their beer, booze, smokes, party favors and vehicles ... other than that, they provide minimal benefit but exorbitant problems.
They do not contribute to the tax base that SUPPORTS them. They do not contribute to the COMMUNITIES that support them.
hello dear ... returning as i said i would. i'll begin with the post above, but, there are several postings addressed in this response.
i would presume you read the links above. funny thing, i did too. I'm wondering if you caught these words in each ...
*** undocumented = illegal (just in case there's any confusion) ***
But many undocumented workers have taxes taken out of their checks and an increasing number are filing tax returns, according to IRS
statistics, local undocumented workers and immigrant advocates.
*** the problem here is
illegal workers ***
Paycheck withholding collects much of the federal tax from illegal workers, just as it does for legal workers.
The Internal Revenue Service doesn't track a worker's immigration status, yet many illegal immigrants fearful of deportation won't risk
the government attention that will come from filing a return even if they might qualify for a refund. Economist William Ford of Middle
Tennessee State University says there are no firm figures on how many such taxpayers there are.
*** key phrases ... illegal immigrants / might qualify
During their working life, undocumented immigrants in the United States will pay, on average, approximately $80,000 more in taxes per capita than
they use in government services, owing to the fact that they are not eligible to take advantage of almost all of the social service programs offered
by the federal government, according to a study released by the National Council of La Raza.
ah yes, the NCLR - do you know who they are? .... the new version of the NAACP ... hmmm, just what we need
It legitimizes the presence of immigrants who are here illegally, critics say, and sends a mixed message about the country’s interest in
enforcing its own rules.
“The word schizophrenic comes to mind,” said Marti Dinerstein, president of Immigration Matters, a research firm that advocates tighter
immigration enforcement. “There is something fundamentally wrong about this.”
In 2004, the IRS got 7.9 million W-2s with names that didn’t match a Social Security Number. More than half were from California, Texas, Florida and
Illinois, states with large immigrant populations, leading experts to believe they likely represent the wages of illegal immigrants.
again, the irs Received 7.9 million fraudulent
filings. Wonder if the new 16,000 agents will be following up on those criminals
edit: just to clarify ... that's Both, workers and employers. Employers file W2s ... employEEs file W4s. Seems we have a barrel of fish to fry ...
i wonder how quickly this will be 'forgotten'.
**** E-verify (if used) should have caught every one of these 7.9 Million 'mistakes' -- is that the right PC word these days? ****
Across the Bering Straits...by foot...no anchor involved.
pssssst -- once the boat is at port, the anchor is NOT deployed ... try again.
anchor -- device embeded in/upon the soil to prevent movement.
Right? less than 5% of welfare families have a parent that was born outside the USA and of that 5% only a small fraction are illegal
no figures available on illegals (source please) ...at least this statement is more legitimate than yours ... 1% of muslims are
death dealing, infidel killing, determined folk but we shouldn't count or concern ourselves with that MILLION ppl either, right?
Nope just history repeating itself...
so, if this is your 'justification' for the current dilemmas we endure, i have to ask ... isn't
repeating history and expecting a different result, insane?
They are the least of our brothers and we ask them to come here and work insane jobs for insanely low pay and then look down our noses and call them
No one is calling names here ... laws have been broken.
Why should we bend our laws to suit the person who just broke them?
a criminal is a criminal, period.
as every action has a consequence, why should their consequence be averted?
no offense intended here, but don't blame me for your bad decision. i make enough of my own, thank you.
ya know, girl scouts teach 'charity begins in the heart', but they also taught one very important fact of life ... lack of preparation on your behalf
does NOT constitute an emergency on mine.
(from same post above) One day we will run out of people to blame for our problems
... oh that day couldn't come soon enough. i'm
about sick of all the finger pointing going around. Mirrors for all !!
Having a legal parent or guardian is not a necessity of citizenship, nor is age as any orphan will tell you.
that info only comes from
run-aways. orphans have orphanages, wards are placed and illegals deported. also, a parent or guardian IS necessary for a minor to exercise any, if
not all, of their citizen rights.
yesterday is not today.
hopefully the horrors of today will not become tomorrow,
much like the stories of yesterday are just that, stories.
let tomorrow begin a new chapter and be the change you wish to see.
