COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM: Joke #1 Fines and Back Taxes
"Allow undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States continually since before December 31, 2011 to apply for “Registered Provisional Immigrant Status” if they pay back taxes and $500 in fines, and if they have not been convicted of a felony or 3 or more misdemeanors or voted illegally. Individuals with this status can work for any employer and travel outside the country but are not eligible to receive means-tested federal public benefits."- NBC
First on taxes there were provisions in the 2007 immigration bill that illegal immigrants had to pay back taxes. But, that was later dropped because it was "too complicated to enforce" does anyone believe that anything has changed since then? Certainly, Senator Chuck Schumer one of the gang of eight pushing this plan has killed plans to make illegals play by the same rules as U.S. taxpayers as far back as the 1986 immigration plan.
Second the illegals only have to pay a a $500 fine. What a joke! Some of these illegals paid thousands of dollars to cross the U.S. borders illegally. Charging just a $500 fine for the illegals to be allowed to keep working legally in the U.S. is another joke!
