Illegal Immigrants Pay More In Taxes Than Wealthy

“A new study released by the Immigration Policy Center for tax day shows that at least half of the undocumented immigrants in this country pay income taxes.  Add that to the sales and property taxes that those undocumented persons also pay and  undocumented immigrants pay more in taxes than most wealthy Americans.”


“States like Florida, for example, which collects about $806.8 million from unauthorized immigrants and does not have a state income tax would certainly feel the impact should a significant amount of that population leave.  That revenue comes from immigrants buying groceries, rent and other necessities subject to sales and property taxes.”
