Undocumented immigrants and taxes

From the Immigration Policy Center, here's a table regarding state and local taxes paid by households headed by undocumented immigrants in 2010, which totaled an estimated $11.2 billion. It's from last year, but I hadn't seen it before. There is a very, very common belief--often rooted simply in misunderstanding rather than any antipathy--that undocumented immigrants pay almost nothing in taxes.

For a snapshot, here is another figure from the report. North Carolina is tenth in revenues.

Dow Jones Industrial Index in 12988.02. breaking 13,000 soon today - NASDAQ in 2,961 and soon to break 3,000 - Standards and Poor in 1,365 -

Please all Wall Streeters and Investors kneel on the floor of New York Stocks Exchange and thank God for for President Obama :

I have said so ! - Ditto Ditto Ditto - He Dicho !! -- Roma Locuta Est, Cause Finita -

All words are superfluous when President Obama has saved America and the World of a Big Depression and now the bulls are running like mad, like in the San Fermin Fiesta of Pamplona Spain.

This is a very interesting situation, but not surprising to say the least.
