Round them up

The IRS needs to turn this information over to the DHS and round them up and send them back where they came from regardless whether they pay taxes or not. Illegal is illegal, what's the puzzle?

INSTEAD OF MAILING THE CHECKS TO THESE ILLEGALS, SEND THEM TO THE FBI OFFICE AND LET THEM PERSONALLY DELIVER THEM.THESE PEOPLE DON'T BELONG HERE.

But wait a second. Wouldn't you rather have Carlos in our country rather than the US born citizen who skips out on paying their taxes? At the least Carlos is trying to contribute to our nation and in turn not just get something for nothing.

I think that those of us unfortunate enough to have been issued a ss# at birth should get tax amnesty until the US Gov't secures the border. I feel as if it it US that are being discriminated against by being forced to pay for Bush's fiasco whilwe these illegals fly under the radar while they breed more little american babies and don't exist on paper.

don't know what the big hype is, aren't all laws to be obeyed, like paying taxes. Now collect them from the other 12 million illegals and maybe we can pay the national debt. then deport them all.

If you belive the republican party and the Bush administration, Carlos is here because no American wants to work. Americans are just born rich so they cheat on their taxes and never ever do any kind of manual labor.

They all should be arrested and sent back. Have we not captured crimmals when they use a credit card or filled out an application for a job? What's the difference in filling a tax from?

People like Carlos and his family is also costing the U.S.millions of dollars in welfare. You and I are paying for that.

Carlos is costing the U.S. more that he bringing in. Do the words welfare, food stamps,free housing ring a bell?

I think this just goes to show that these issues aren't as black and white as they seem. Picture yourself destitute living in a country with a poor economy. You move to a stronger country illegally because the immigration laws are rigid and you haven't had the benefit of public education to move up to the professional level in your own country.(An oxymoron because the people who come hear want a higher education and the US only wants the highly educated). You make minimum wage, at times you don't get paid because your boss threatens to call immigration on you. You send every last bit of money you have back to your family who are still in that awful situation back home.

You respect and admire America, are studying for your citizen classes and pay your taxes.

My what a wretched creature! Go back to where you came from!

Can you imagine if all of us who are legal stopped paying taxes for one month, the government would go broke. Sounds like a good idea.

Let them keep there money and pay to get the right paperwork to officialy live here. Then take there money for taxes. We are trying to keep them out but then we are allowing them to file taxes and no one says anything. UGHHHHHHHH

Last time I checked Undocumented Aliens were not eligible for Welfare. Once again if Carlos is paying taxes then he should be eligible for benefits.

One has nothing to do with the other.
Both should follow the law. Carlos is a criminal.Carlos is covering his tail, or so he thinks by doing this. Contributing to this country isn't his intention. Now give us the other BS about him doing jobs americans refuse to do.
Agreed. Now lets deport all of those millions of American citizens who do not file their taxes or who lie and cheat on their taxes as well! They are not only stealing from you and I but also living here under false pretense as well!

Oops, I almost forgot. If you or anyone in your family wants to pick fruit for 12 hours a day or clean up animal waste please feel free. That is the typical type of work Carlos is doing! I am sure that Carlos would gladly swap career paths with you though.

I have been accused of many things in my life but this one hurt the most. I do not believe in anything that the Bush Administration has ever said. Oops, I must take that back. I do believe them when they say almost weekly that Georgie boy is vacationing in Crawford, Texas on our tax dollar!
