  •  so if we are making the immigrants pay back taxes (6+ / 0-)

    are we also making their former employers pay all the back payroll taxes they didn't pay on them . . .?

    Silly me, of COURSE we're not.

    The immigration bill is shit. It guarantees that most immigrants will either never afford citizenship, or will die of old age before getting it.

      Many times, immigrants will have a "no match" social security number and will be paying payroll taxes based on the number that the worker provided.

      My former employer received a "no match" letter about some of my coworkers.  One of these coworkers was replaced by one of my relatives.

    •  VEry often the payroll taxes are paid up front, (0+ / 0-)

      but never credited to the employee since the employee has no valid ssn.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
