Then why some think that their tax dollars are being taking away by the illegal immigrants.

  • If an illegal steals ones SS# they can. I had 3 illegal employees at a pizza restaurant. When I became a manager, I found out they were all using the same old mans SS# and they were all illegal.

    Then when I was a personal assistant for an oil supply company they had 2 farm hands who used their deceased cousins SS#. They were both illegal and I remember being very confused when we got audited.

    "Victims often don't have any idea they’re sharing their identity with an immigrant, because there's no way to find out. Social Security won't tell you if someone else is using your SSN. The extra earnings don't end up on your annual Social Security statement, because they are designated to the Earnings Suspense File instead. Ditto for the Internal Revenue Service."

  • The county hospital offers free prenatal care to pregnant illegals. They can also get free immunizations at the health department. Their children can attend schools in many areas, and be eligible for free lunch programs.

  • No
    Im a tax preparer and I see this a lot...these questions that hae obvious answers

    1. tax dollars are being taken because you drive on the streets, put your kids in public schools, expect police to protect you if your in danger, etc...well thats all paid for in tax dollars.

    2. You came to america illegally. There is no reason to support that by giving excessive benefits. I other countries if you are illegal then you get deported

  • They will be mraching on the mall in D.C. on Sunday begging for more entitlements to illegals.As if all of this has not done enough damage to our country.The constant shelling out of amnesty is just one of our problems.Both the D's and R's have done this (Lindsey GrahamNESTY -R) but it is way more often a card the D's play simply for more votes.

  • No, but they can get everything else.

  • They get food stamps, medical care, etc. All of these come out of taxes citizens pay in. My favorite is that they can get emergency room care. But if you're a citizen and walk in there and can't pay everything at once, you get treated like crap. Gee, I can't imagine why anyone would be irritated by that.
