You know that your argument for amnesty might be shaky when you start citing reports saying that 25-50% of illegal aliens are complete tax dodgers.
Of course the ones who work illegaly and do file a return take the $7 billion in child tax credits that went to illegal aliens and therefore had a negative federal income tax liability. Illegal aliens who steal your SSN to work (illegaly) are hailed as heroes for paying into social security. Does anyone else remember when ID theft was a major concern?
CAUSA's position is that is akin to arguing that the fencing of stolen property in states with a sales tax should be legal to "bring the transactions into the tax system."
They also cite the fact that legal workers earn more money... which is what we have been saying for quite some time in an effort to get rid of illegal workers which would raise wages for Americans and legal immigrants.
