I bet most of you didn't know undocumented immigrants contributed more - much more - to the national treasury last year than General Electric. Surprised? Yet it's true.

I read a lot of post on ATS saying illegal immigrants are stealing jobs and all that but never saw anyone mention any positive things.

The cost of welfare to children of illegal immigrants to Los Angeles county, CA last year: $600 million. This is just one county.

They say that:
"Study estimates that illegal immigrants paid $11.2B in taxes last year, unlike GE, which paid zero"
That may be true but the problem is that if ILLEGAL immigrates paid those taxes they had to have a social security number and if they did then they are guilty of Identity fraud. They are using somebodies numbers and that's ANOTHER crime.

People that gripe about illegals not paying taxes are nuts.. They have to have false social security cards to get jobs and the money they pay in isn't going to be filed on or they would be caught and deported... They pay a bigger part of their income than those that make the same or a considerable amount more and file for returns with deductions while the fat cats living in gated communities milk the middle class and the poor wet backs... This is the real reason there is no real effort to deport these people back to Mexico but no one is going to acknowledge that because they might focus on the real drain on the wealth of this nation that has led it's citizens to believe so many lies that the truth is referred to as conspiracy theory.
