The comments on this article are really appalling. you can’t have it both ways. Either undocumented people are sucking the system dry because they supposedly are taking all these public benefits they are not contributing to (not true, btw, no social security number and proof of legal status= no welfare, food stamps, SSI, medicaid or any other public benefit. And that is the truth, even if it is not what you want to believe because it means you are wrong.) or as this article suggests they are contributing billions of dollars to our economy in taxes, (federal, FICA, state, local, sales, property and personal property) and getting no benefit. It is too bad that all of these outraged commenters can’t actually look at this problem objectively rather than spend their time commenting in pretentious posts that pro port to know the law by using big word s and legal sounding terms. Oh, and entering the country illegally is not, in fact a crime unless it is done after a deportation.
