I wonder if any of the ILLEGAL immigrants paid state taxes that helps keep the water treatment plants up and running?


What state taxes pay for water treatment plants?

Are there any water treatment plants operating on a state level?

This problem and all it's encumbrance's didn't start yesterday and won't end tomorrow. Change, good and bad, comes with growing pains. It is definitely a time of change. Basic laws need to be respected in every country. People need to be able to stand on the basic principles on the here and now. Bickering doesn't solve anything. People have always tried to take care of themselves and their own and no one is exempt from that responsibility as it makes any benefactor stronger.

Um what government assistance are you talking about? Either your very misled or you dont live in the US


Maybe Alabama don't have food stamps. I don't live there, so I don't know if they do. But, in other states low income people do get this assistance from their glorious state Uncle.

The problem is simple. They are "illegally" in the USA. Get legal & get you some services. Stay illegal & i hope each and every damn state does the same thing if not more. Enforce the laws we have. And i do believe for the most of the illegals that came from Or thru Mexico. Pretty much walked their arse's thru a desert to get here.

Option (two) go to Walmart and buy it.



Legal or illegal has nothing to do with it. Anyone who pays taxes has the right to the benefits those taxes provide.

Would it be better that the 20 Million undocumented pay no taxes at all?

What about passing a law prohibiting undocumented people from paying taxes.

After all, that's an American right. No one else has the right to pay American taxes but Americans!

Keep those illegals from tossing their filthy money into our tax pool. We don't want their tax dollars, let them send it to Mexico, or wherever they have "rights".

Please, I beg of you. Tell where exactly you are getting some inside info that millions of "undocumented" illegal people are paying taxes.

Where has my government been hiding that information you speak of. How did you, of all people, get access to it.

The right to pay taxes and/or benefit from their derivatives should be reserved for citizens only. Bottom line.

I tried to really digest and comprehend all the posts I have read on this thread. We are all helpless to ignorance and aversity. I applaud Alabama and Arizona in their comprehensive laws.

Let your people be.

I think the point most people overlook is that these people are criminals...They have broken federal law by entering this country illegally. It is legal for us to kill criminals convicted of certain offenses, so why is denying them access to city water such a big deal?

This doesn't mean that illegal immigrants aren't allowed to get water anywhere, they just aren't allowed to get it from the city supply. I would have no problem with this affecting me, as I have all required legal documents. ANY legal citizen or resident in this country is provided documentation. And plus, I can speak English, so I could probably communicate my position rather fluently, as opposed to those who come here illegally and cannot speak the language of the place.

Have you read the previous replys and posts??/ Some how I don't think so.

The only part of the OPs post that I agree with is that water is a basic human right. However, the people who are here illegally aren't being denied this basic right. They should be arrested and deported for breaking the law, and while in jail they would be given water. And for those who haven't been arrested and deported they are more than welcome to go down to a local river or lake and get some water for their basic human rights.

A state denying access to municipal water to anyone who isn't a legal resident of the state sounds good to me. If I were to move to Alabama I would have no problem providing the proper documents so I could get my water turned on. If someone is in this country illegally they are a criminal avoiding the law. Any businesses, states, cities or other entities that knowingly allow these criminals asylum by making it easy for them are just as guilty as far as I'm concerned.

Everywhere cash flows tax is collected.

You buy a beer, tax is collected.

You buy a car, tax is collected.

You go to see a movie, tax is collected.

You get a paycheck, tax is deducted by the employer and sent to the gov automatically.

You don't even have to file a tax return to pay taxes.

Every time you spend, you pay taxes.

From the time you wake up in the morning, to the time you go to sleep at night, you're paying taxes, whatever you do.

Can't avoid the taxman. He is everywhere.

Cool...maybe you can get the illegals to pay my property tax, my school tax (even though I have no children in school), my income tax, and all the other taxes I'm paying that aren't collected at .07% by Walmart.

Think ya can do that for me?

No. But if the illegals buy a property they have to pay that property tax just like you !

Otherwise a guy called "Sam" comes and takes their house.

The taxman doesn't care whether you're legal or illegal, he wants the money either way.

And, of course, if they pay "rent" the tax is included by the landlord already !

It's against the law for an illegal to "buy" a property. Illegals can't legally enter a binding contract required to buy a property. Of course, they can use a third party to purchase it for them.

You are so dense. I'm really starting to believe you know nothing of U.S. law.

Wow!, you people are so lost! This country doesn't belong to you. You think that you have some sort of exclusive rights to something here, but your ancestors took this land from innocent people and turned them into slaves and put them into prison camps that their children still reside in.

Each and every one of you that is spewing this filth deserves to be deported to the places that these immigrants are coming from. Do you know what would happen if you got what you wanted??? You would starve! if every immigrant worker left this country and went home today, our country would collapse instantly. You know that the reason our government doesn't keep them out is because these illegals make up a vast cheap labor force that is the base this country has ALWAYS stood upon. You should be grateful for the LACK of resources these quiet workers DON'T suck up. Most of you will consume more and destroy more of the environment than twenty migrant families will in a lifetime and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

If what you all say is true, then be ready, because one day some other nations people will sneak into your homeland and rape and pillage your children and then tell them that they are illegally occupying a space that doesn't belong to them anymore, and you will all be crying injustice.

NOONE should be denied a reasonable chance to provide shelter and nourishment for their families regardless of where they live ANYWHERE no matter how or when the came there. Until you all realize that, you are setting yourselves or your children up for a sore landing in reality.

I'm not in this for racial profiling, uh uh. And dude ALL federal laws apply to the territories, however there are laws and programs that don't apply to STATES. Like section 936. Believe me I was born and raise here on this little colony, they treat us different, us, the virgin islands, guam, even D.C. We have to follow all laws but don't get all the benefits. I don't know how to post links, or I would show you. One example: Death penalty is illegal under the PR constitution, but break a FEDERAL law that's punishable by death and they WILL kill you.


Better go back and read what I said about federal laws...dude...(What are you, like 17?) I said they are not the same. I DID NOT say PR did not have to follow them.

Immigrants have been the strength, yada yada....


That was back when folks came in and....

1. Learned the language

2. Made their way WITHOUT government help.

3. Didnt expect everyone else to bend to their "needs".

Nah. Shutdown the borders, get rid of all illegals, bring the factories and our military home....and get rid of all the "multi cultural" BS.

The anchor baby law was used by the socialists to garner votes from ill educated illegals.

Try that crap in another country....Mexico maybe? Yeah. Right.
