Illegal Immigrants and Taxes

Do illegal immigrants pay taxes?

It is a question many of you have been asking us.

Here is the answer.

According to attorneys, all employers are required to set up a payroll system in which income taxes are automatically deducted from a worker's paycheck.

So, taxes would have been taken out of wages of the 36 arrested workers.

Immigration attorney, Michael Durham said, "We have all these foreign nationals here in the United States that are paying into the system, they aren’t going to withdraw from that so the US federal government is making a surplus on all these undocumented workers in the united states."

On a side note, some economists speculate that if illegal immigrants were taken out of the workforce, the US social security system would collapse.
