In fact, Mexican workers that are paid "under-the-table" (as in they don't have anything taxes taken out of their paycheck) are relatively rare. Meaning they financially contribute to a system under which they are considered as faceless statistics and under which they have no voice.
Relatively rare? So where do the rest of the illegal aliens send their taxes? Do they fill out a W-4 with a fake SSN? Do they use a fake Tax ID number instead? Since they can't claim any excess taxes because they don't file, do they claim 10 exemptions to minimize the withholding amount?
And what about all the petitioners that are waiting 20+ years for their chance to legally immigrate to the U.S.? Are we to tell them "Sorry, the illegal population is so large that we don't have room for you again this year."? http://www.washingtonpost.com/...
