    You don’t have to be a citizen to get an ITIN from the IRS & the IRS does not share that taxpayer information with anyone except under extraordinary circumstances. Being an illegal is not grounds for the IRS to act. Don’t think we want to go down that slippery slope. You already have the Democrats trying to get their hands on Republican tax filings for political gain.

    There are quite a few folks who have done financial forensic investigations based on things like money transfers to Mexico who estimate > 30 million illegal immigrants. These studies were done by banks and not immigration think tanks.

    Plus, think about it - do you really think if we had 11 million illegal immigrants here that EIGHT MILLION (88% including women and children) of those would be paying payroll taxes? It’s nonsensical.

    Yesterday was the first day of the new Congress - they filed articles of impeachment. I forget how many times this has been done already. Impeaching Trump is like repealing the ACA for Republicans. They really really hate him and want to do it, but they just can't ever figure out how.

    Meanwhile, over 300,000 net new jobs were created last month. Record low unemployment records are being broken everywhere and nearly 160 million people are now working. That's up nearly 20 million workers in the last 8 years...about 7 million in the last 2 years.
