Money transfers by outfits like Western Union are already expensive. Why should anyone, illegal or not, be taxed on top of this? This is a totally discriminative and regressive tax on poor people who come here to work and support their families. They already pay Social Security taxes from which they will never benefit.

What if the millions of $$ being wired out of NC was going to support
terrorism?
Dont you think we should know about it
What if it was drug $$ going out of the country to be laundered?
Dont you think we should know about it?

As for ElPueblo, they always seem to be there to shout out about injustice, while using my tax $$ to do it

Well, if they know they are 'illegal', handcuff them right then. Keep an ICE employee at all Ingles and Western Union sites. And while at the immigration holding, tax them on the money they have in their pocket and use the rest for the bus ticket back to wherever.
