Let me say something about that ten percent.
That would include people like my maternal grandfather (when he was alive) who only graduated from 8th grade, but went on to work as a brakeman on the Pennsylvania railroad for 40 years.
Or some of the men married to my mother's sisters, one of whom had a 4th grade education, but took civil service exams and eventually became a Postmaster.
These uncles still head households, old as they are (in their 80s).
But they, like most in their generation, are not illiterate, but are self-educated men.
Not comparable to the many immigrating from south of our borders, who cannot read or write in any language.
Told you so....
Yes he did, after WWII.
I met a man who was born in the US to Mexican bracero parents who had been forced to return to Mexico after WWII.
As he was an American born child, he returned as an adult American citizen, became a pastor, and raised his family here.
Interestingly, during the PROP 187 referendum, he was a supporter, as he stated that his own sons could not find work, while illegals from Mexico had no problem at all, due to their network connected to employers.
How does an illegal contribute taxes? I can see sales taxes, but not $9000 a year.
They don’t—They work for “Cash Only”
When they protest in the streets, they continually claim they pay taxes - I’ve never figured out how you can pay taxes without a legal social security number, or why you would even try.
Geesh! They provide their employer with a fake SS number....the withheld payroll taxes are sent in quarterly by the employer to the US treasury...no refunds given on tax returns...it's FOUND MONEY to the federal and state coffers.
It's one of the main reasons the governments are slow to correct it. It's helping keep social security solvent.
At least that's what I'm told.
I'm hopelessly liberal on immigration. They took the nerve to get across the border to work here....let them stay. Give them citizenship. Get them on the tax rolls.
Hmmm... Says all I need to know about you.
Someone hasn't seen the latest estimate of 30 million illegals.
Plenty of truth to that statement,
President Bush seems to be selling us down the river to the high bidder.
Whoa!! The extra money we have to pay in taxes, etc. is FAR higher than any supposed increased price that we would have to pay for LETTUCE, etc.
Send the bill to liberals and politicians.
Maybe you can explain to me how they came up with a figure of $9000 even if they were basing it on social security - no freaking way any illegal is making that kind of money. More likely they are in a $25,000 range which would only mean withholding of about $2000 a year
indexed, ping later...

This is 'free' money to the federal government.

I would love to meet the person who thought up this unfolding economic nightmare...
