Undocumented immigrants contributed $428 billion to economy in 2006

CNN reports that undocumented immigrants are paying billions of dollars in taxes into the US system each year. Nothing new there for those of us who know what's going on in the real world.

How many SS Checks may you pay with U$S 400 Bs? Many!!!

Now, are the illegal immigrants a burden or are they helping keep America running? I go for the second choice.

How are the illegals paying taxes if they don't have SSN? My girlfriend is an illegal Irish, and we are afraid to find her a job because we don't think anyone will pay her under the table.
