ILLEGAL ALIENS DO PAY TAXES. Two thirds of illegal aliens pay taxes. The only difference if the are given legal status is they will file and get most taxes in return, collect unemployment, social security, SSI, low income subsidized housing, Medicaid and Medicare. With dependents, they will pay no taxes or very little in taxes. The left wing rhetoric that bring them out of the shadows and legalizing them and they will pay more in taxes. But they will collect more in benefits than they pay in taxes. Imigration Reform will be a disaster for this country. Even now they receive more in benefits than they pay in taxes. Maybe they will never collect social security, etc, they collect now. In healthcare and benefits for anchor babies.
