    "constitutional"??  What does that mean?  Don't politicians need to acknowledge the existence and authority of a Constitution and read it before they would be concerned about the laws they enact being "constitutional"?  Almost 70% of what the federal government spends taxes (confiscated earnings) and borrowed from China money on is unconstitutional.  You could contact your alleged representatives in the Swamp but I doubt they would care since unconstitutional pandering is how most of them keep their cushy jobs.

    The short answer?  It AIN'T even close.

    Illegal aliens pay billions of dollars in income tax. If they have a legitimate job they have federal and state income tax withheld automatically. And Social Security tax. And of course they pay sales tax on anything they buy, and any other tax relevant to their activities.

    Employers who illegally pay someone "under the table", whether they hire immigrants or citizens, don't have any reason to obey a minimum wage law. Those aliens earn less than anyone working legally takes home after taxes.

    And what do those taxes pay for? Social security. Health care. Welfare. Unemployment insurance. A $1200 stimulus check to every citizen. None of which a non-citizen can apply for. And the army that fuсked up their home country in the first place. The only government service non-citizens can benefit from is public schools, and if their kids are going to live here they might as well learn to be productive. 

    If you want to complain about somebody not paying tax, complain about the $100 million that Donald Trump owes.

    Wait, if your tax rate is 40% then you earn more than $300,000 per year. You're probably a fan of tax evasion when it comes in the form of blatantly lying on your tax return and then getting your buddies in Congress to squash the resulting audit. If YOU want to complain about somebody not paying tax, complain about the EITC giving some of the poorest citizens a negative tax rate.

    You haven't seen anything yet, wait until Biden gets in.  All borders will be open & all illegals get free medical, food stamps, free housing, welfare, & free college.

    The same way a person with $BILLIONS$ in income can do so. By the way, you can live anywhere income tax free if you don't have an income.

    A poor person does not pay 40% of their income to tax.  In fact, many don't pay taxes at all and receive a sizeable refund each year through Earned Income Credit and Child Tax Credit.

    The constitution has nothing to do with it. And the key word is "illegal."  They live here because they came here, and it doesn't have anything to do with your tax responsibility.

    Simple answer: They don't.  It has nothing to do with the constitution and everything to do with our tax laws, as pointed out below.  You're not paying 40% of your income in taxes unless you're living in Russia.  Now tell us this:  do YOU pay every single tax possible?  Do you know anybody who is?  So what if some people pay more of their income in other taxes than they do in income taxes?  Is there something magical about paying income tax that entitles you to something special low-income people don't get?  You really have no idea what you're talking about, do you?  Are you a white racist?  Is that the real problem here?

    No one in the USA - legal or not - pays 40% federal income tax if they are poor.  Most pay ZERO income tax.

    Everyone in the USA - legal or not - pays tax even if they are poor.   There are a gazillion kinds of tax.
