The real point is that the employer owns the job he or she creates. They have a de jure / lawful / constitutional Right to give that job to the candidate that best fills that need. The immigration laws are put into place, mostly to regulate citizenship, NOT interfere with the needs of individual business.
Your response shows a bias toward socialism. The individual businessman's needs are not the nation's needs. That is the case in socialist nations and the reason that the Trumpeteers want the wall, National ID, E-Verify, etc. They also want us to adopt the immigration laws of communist and socialist countries.
Our history has proven that the availability of cheap foreign labor helps the economy over-all.
Do Illegal Immigrants Actually Hurt the U.S. Economy? - The New York Times
This thread contains posts by many different people here with terrific explanations and links:
The Boomers, The Future & You
Property taxes, sales taxes, income taxes, etc.
And the California estimated outlay for undocumented people of $30 Billion referenced above is the product of a tortured, distorted "calculation".
And you do understand that SS taxes you speak of go to the GENERAL OPERATIONAL BUDGET of the US Government, the same budget that the 26.3 billion of welfare benefits used by illegals (in just California this does NOT include the other 49 states and DC)
So just CALIFORNIAN ILLEGALS EXSPEND more than DOUBLE the taxes paid nationwide by illegals.
Tax Credits for Illegal Immigrants*Snip*
[T]he IRS routinely seeks to collect both federal income taxes and federal payroll taxes from illegal immigrants, who are required to pay regardless of their immigration status. Because such workers don’t qualify for a valid Social Security number, the IRS issues a nine-digit Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. An ITIN doesn’t authorize the user to work legally in the U.S., and doesn’t entitle him or her to Social Security benefits.
But in addition to collecting taxes, the IRS has increasingly been making payments to low-income workers who pay no federal income tax but qualify for “refundable” credits. Generally, illegal immigrants don’t qualify for Social Security, Medicare or other federal benefits, except for emergency medical treatment in hospitals. And since passage of the 1996 welfare reform law, they have been ineligible for the refundable portion of the Earned Income Tax Credit as well.
At that time, Congress required that a valid Social Security number be filed for those claiming the EITC, and that requirement saved an estimated $300 million a year. But Congress did not enact a similar requirement when it created the child tax credit, which went into effect in tax year 1998 at $400 per child, and was increased to $500 the following year.
No, mostly they go to a segregated fund, held against the possibility they will be properly claimed in the future. Not sure I understand your point about federal and state budgets. Can you expand on this?And you do understand that SS taxes you speak of go to the GENERAL OPERATIONAL BUDGET of the US Government, the same budget that the 26.3 billion of welfare benefits used by illegals (in just California this does NOT include the other 49 states and DC)
No. There is no failure to pay property taxes, so the education costs are as fully funded as they are for the children of citizens. That alone is a $15 Billion error.So just CALIFORNIAN ILLEGALS EXSPEND more than DOUBLE the taxes paid nationwide by illegals.
About 6.1 Million Illegals Filed Taxes in US ? Many Didn't Pay, Received Refunds[/QUOTE]
61 million undocumented people filed requests for tax refunds? SIXTY ONE million?
NOBODY thinks the total number of undocumented people is anywhere near that high.
