Most illegals are using/working with fraudulent Identifications. Tell us how they will pay back anything?
I see no paper trail,at least once they come out of the woodwork and apply for citizenship.
Illegals avoid paying taxes at all costs. They want IRS refunds, they want welfare and other free money.
The fraudulent Identification will no longer be used.
The fraudulent Identification will not ever come up again, therefore no back money/taxes will be paid into the system as this Immigration Bill demands.
Illegals who have been here know very well how to work the system... and those recent arrivals will be taught how to get away with not paying into the system.

What everybody is forgetting is, to became legall the immigrants will pay for the paper works , so it's not free and the government will get the money back. Just make the account, 11 million immigrants multiply for $ 1,000.00. My calculator could not handle to give me the exact number because is huge.

What you don't get is that illegal immigrants DO NOT pay for their taxes because of fear. However, I agree there are many that will live off welfare, but again, simple math; if you add more money to their accounts since they will be able to work without fear, then perhaps more money to pay for their taxes.

Maybe I don't get it (as you say), but what I do get , what I do know and understand is that we don't have to be going through all these issue if we only enforced the laws and stop pandering to Illegals.

You are wrong again: I did read the article before commenting as I always do.

They just calculated the costs without actually trying to figure out the gains. Even the costs doesn't seem right as many of these immigrants will have much better jobs than they do now; therefore they won't qualify for welfare or other benefits.

The conservative group article is more accurate than your opinion.Do you really believe they wont get assistance just because they have slightly better jobs?no,these people have huge families and will always need government assistance.You say they wont qualify as if they're going to become doctors,lawyers and business owners.

Don't forget that 40% of those without documents have overstayed their visas and most of these people have superior education. Also the immigrants are more likely to become business owners. They are known for that.

I think our government hasn't applied the laws that we already have. Shame on them. Also to spend tax payer money on helping people who have broken our laws is beyond me. Stop spending tax payer money and get our debt down... deport them like the laws say and put the ones that harbor them in prison. And if your here speak ENGLISH!
