Lawyer makes case against immigrant myths

Apr 26, 2009 Full story: www.dallasnews.com 59

While politicians may debate the merits of immigration reform, many economists and researchers have already made up their minds: Immigrants contribute far more to the U.S. economy than they take.

In the article it states they contribute\ute over 500 billion in s,s.a taxes. More pro hype in who's names were the taxes paid? If he is illegal who's S.S.A numbers is he using...........Tim Full Story

The ones that aren't payed under the table claim 10 - 14 dependents and pay the minumum s.s. & medicare taxes. They pay zero federal & state taxes. What little they're forced to pay does not come close to what they take out of the system.

What did you expect from a study conducted by Hispanics about Hispanics anyway.

You are the single most dense poster I have ever encountered.

So what if SS and Medicare are the same no matter the dependents? Who cares?

They still end up paying no federal income tax and getting back more, more, more, depending on their dependents...at the taxpayers' expense.

Knock Knock! Anyone home? Never mind. Didn't think so.

no they donīt usually get any back if they donīt file...whatever, you cannot even rationalize that some business pay more than you do in overall tax so make sure you never try to do any self tax or accounting leave it to the accountants which you clearly are not.

self contractors do not file taxes-send the extra to mexico. Just go to Walmart and see the difference it cost to sent $300 dollars to another state and see what the cost is to sent 500 to mexico-it is cheaper to sent money to MEXICO than oklahoma So americans are even shafted by Walmart in senting funds to Oklahoma, cost a lots more.

When they get paid in cash daily they are not paying ANY in taxes. Getting their ten to fifteen dependents means they get a LOT back from our taxpayers. Us paying them to live in America is not worth the pain that 'enriches' our lives or the lives of their gang victims, rape victims, theft victims endure.

Goodbye, oh clueless one.

Oh, they contribute a lot. Crime, rape, shootings, stabbings, murder, muggings, drunken driving homicides, graffiti.

"Ultimately, all this worrying about undocumented immigrants is for nothing,"

Quote:

This guy's a lawyer and can't say the words "Illegal aliens"!

"Immigration refers to the movement of people between countries. While the
movement of people has existed throughout human history at various levels,
modern immigration implies long-term, legal, permanent residence. Short-term
visitors and tourists are considered non-immigrants (see expatriate).
Immigration across national borders in a way that violates the immigration
laws of the destination country is termed illegal immigration."

"Illegal immigration refers to immigration across national borders in a way
that violates the immigration laws of the destination country. Under this
definition, an illegal immigrant is a foreigner who either has illegally
crossed an international political border, be it by land, water, or air, or
a foreigner who has entered a country legally but then overstays his/her
visa. "
