Everyone that abides in this country should pay taxes like any other citizen. They should have to pay into SS as well. Consider it a luxury tax. The fact is, our immigrants are spending in some areas and bleeding us in others. Some public schools have kids walking to school to get lunch even if they don't have finals that day. They are going to get the free meal. I think it's too easy for people to come here, set up camp, multiply, and milk our society. I think we need to add some taxes which may curb some of the huge welfare we are creating.

I have no problem with immigrants coming here, as long as they are on the books and pay taxes. I am all for it
I think the large majority of illegal immigrants would like to have legal status and just be able to earn a decent living and support their families.
As long as we are talking about taxes, how about major corporations paying a fair share of taxes. Or even better how about having tax breaks tied, to how much they pay their employees, and if their employee and products are made in the United States.
Our tax policies should be aimed at incentivizing our companies to hire American workers and pay them good honest and decent wages. Like giving them tax breaks, for paying their employees higher wages. And making their products in the USA.
One thing that pisses me off as a taxpayer is corporations who don't pay much % wise in taxes, but then also pay their employees poorly.
Then those employees can't afford to live on their own. And need food stamps, medical assistance and other hell to survive. All of which comes back out of taxpayers pockets.
