Even if the majority did claim 9 dependents, their income is low enough on average that they wouldn't realy pay anything in income taxes anyway (average household income of $27,400 with an average of two dependents).
So in essence, if you took a sample of 200 people, 100 of them illegals, 100 of them citizens and looked at the amount of income taxes paid with both groups averaging $27,400 per household and 2 dependents, the illegal sample would actually have a higher amount of income tax paid after returns are filed even if only 25% of them used fake SS numbers without claiming 9 dependents. This is because none of their returns would be filed, leaving all of the income taxes paid in the system. Almost every one of the citizens would file in order to receive their returns, meaning very little (if any) of the income tax paid would actually remain in the system.
On top of that, the average drain on resources associated between the two groups would be much higher for the citizens (about double).
The study cited by Cholla shows that the average federal fiscal cost of an illegal household was about 54% less than that of a legal household.
The amount towards SS and medicare that the legal group paid would be greater due to the fact that a large proportion of the illegal group would be getting paid under the table, but the illegals far lower drain on the system and inability to access the SS funds in the future more than compensates for this difference.
Which is why I support and promote the deportation of all natural-born citizens who fit the same educational and skill criteria as illegals do on average and replacing them with illegals. It would be a boon to the economy.
On top of that, at least the illegal has done something to earn their place in America, even if it is illegal. Whereas the natural-born citizen usually hasn't done anything to earn their place. For the most part, those citizens who have done something to earn their place (such as military service) tend to fall outside the criteria.
On top of that, the citizens are clearly documented and would be easy to round up and deport.

Tucker Case - Tard magnet.
I was told 2 stories.
1 - An owner of a landscaping company went to where the day laborers were and tried to hire a few for a day job. The men said they would work for no less than $15.00 per hour. He offered $10.00, all under the table of course, and they refused.
2 - My friends father was moving to a new apartment and needed help. He is 75 years old and couldn't move anything. The day laborers demanded no less than $20.00 per hour to do the work. Obviously he told them no deal. A moving company would charge less and be insured.
These stories about illegals being taken advantage of is crap.
They won't work for little money.
