Some might pay income. Though good chance most do not.
Unless they steal someone's Social Security number how can they be paying income tax?

but let's not forget this Administration and Hillary's intention for open borders.
Many of these current illegals have been encouraged via our freaking Gov't to ignore a perfectly workable immigration system that processes 1 million LEGAL immigrants per year entering the U.S..

Big difference between migrating legally through channels and fleeing as refugees from disaster, war, poverty, whatever.
Are we talking US, EU, or in general?
if migrating, then fore-planning is presumable. If a refugee, they come with mostly nothing . How they gonna pay taxes early on, they need a helping hand.

Funny thing is that many illegals have jobs and many legals don't.
It it weren't for the illegals who would sow your shirts, do your laundry and dry cleaning, pick your fruit, care for your house and children and mov your lawns?

Chances are if your grandparents didn't have a PhD in engineering or another STEM field or if they weren't sponsored by an employer, they would have had to come in illegally also

"Without your contribution to tax you are taking advantage of the things very hard working people slaved for."
Rich people and huge companies are evading taxes hiding money in offshore accounts.
I don't see most people getting mad at them for that.
Why this double standard between an illegal not paying income taxes because his employer his paying him in cash, and the 1% who are deliberately evading taxes despite having more than enough to live?

Illegal immigrants aren't stealing US jobs.
American employers are giving them away.
