    At tax time, illegal immigrants are paying too

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24054024
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The tax system collects its due, even from a class of workers with little likelihood of claiming a refund and no hope of drawing a Social Security check.

    Illegal immigrants are paying taxes to Uncle Sam, experts agree. Just how much they pay is hard to determine because the federal government doesn't fully tally it. But the latest figures available indicate it will amount to billions of dollars in federal income, Social Security and Medicare taxes this year. One rough estimate puts the amount of Social Security taxes alone at around $9 billion per year.

    Illegals can get a tax ID# from the IRS without any proof of citizenship. The social security and medicare are the big ones(15.3% of all earned income) because if you are not a citizen you can never recieve those benefits, but they still are required to pay in, it's like Mexico's welfare for Americans.

    I think a more accurate thread title would have been "At tax time, a HANDFUL of illegal immigrants are paying too"

    Just went with the title of the news article.
    9 billion of social security is quite a bit. If the average social security recipient recieves $12,000 a year in social security benefits then 750,000 retirees are getting their checks from illegal immigrants.
    At the very least this puts a dent in the welfare they recieve.(Although most welfare comes from local government and not the federal)

    Nope. That one wasn't about illegal immigrants.

    Oh yeah, that makes these threads completely different for causing a heated debated, yes nothing in your thread could possibly cause any disagreement.
