Paying Taxes

Despite what you think about illegal immigrants, they pay taxes. In fact they pay almost all of the same taxes we pay, including social security, medicare taxes, unemployment taxes, property taxes (often through their landlord), local and state taxes, gasoline taxes, and most of all, sales taxes.

The only tax they don't often pay is income tax because they don't have a social security number  for the IRS to file a tax return, but their employer(s) often deducts federal, state and local taxes from their pay check. Only those being paid under the table don't pay these taxes, but still pay other taxes.

So don't say they don't pay taxes, they do.
