Given the reported figure that works out to the following:
Lost state sales taxes in El Paso
Lost sales taxes for the City of El Paso.
Lost sales taxes for the County of El Paso
Lost sales tax for Sun Metro
Then of course there is the fact they carry no car insurance and dont pay their traffic tickets. Somehow I dont think we are even breaking even on the deal.
If any of you naysayers had any business sense or stakes in the matter, you would soon find that the Manifesto was set into Law to attract Mexican shoppers to Texas. They may not pay Taxes but they insert Millions into the local economy.
When I say they donít pay taxes I say it very vaguely considering they do pay Taxes in Restaurant, Bars, and Gas Stations and only 41% of them actually file for Manifesto, the great majority of whom live here in Texas (source http://goliath.ecnext.com
Anywhere you go or whatever topic you discuss you will always have a bunch of ignorant naysayers coming up with ridicules arguments, but the truth is that if you think our local economy is weak id like you to see how it be like without Mexican money being spent I n the City. Billions of Dollars leave our county each year, because of our dependence on drugs. Its nice to see a little of it coming back!
