lol sorry, sometimes i don't even understand myself.

i meant, being illegal doesn't mean you are not supposed to pay taxes. I can put you in contact with lots of illegals that have been in here for 10 years plus and they pay their taxes every year.

How are they paying taxes other than sales tax? Doesn't one need to have a SS or work visa to pay income tax? Really, I don't know.

Wrong. You get an ITIN (individual Tax Payer Identification Number) and use it to declare taxes.

IRS doesn't care if you are illegal as long as you pay taxes. Now, ask the IRS how much money they collect from illegal alliens.

Not to be sarcastic ... but why is it that people pick one thing out of an entire post to argue with?

Again...
Do you really think that someone that has been working in the country for x years illegally is going to step up and pay a fine just to be legal? Why would they go through this trouble anyway? So they can start paying taxes?

Example:
If you've never had FICA taken out of your paycheck then you become a citizen and start paying FICA .... you have now started paying a tax that you were not paying before.

Not many that's for sure. My point is that just saying kick them all is not a solution. Even if 1% of them pay their taxes, it is 1% of families that will suffer even thought hey have been trying to do the right thing for years.

All I am saying is that it is a very difficult topic. Kiccking them all, letting them all stay, etc. THere is no easy solution but I do think they need to do something about it.

IMO, those who are here, have to pay a fee, and become legal. and start paying taxes. THEN lock the borders down.
i'm most mad about the fact they get the same service (hospital/schools) as i do, and yet i pay taxes. i'm an immigrant and can understand why they came here.
