"Illegals just mooch off the government, healthcare, and don’t pay taxes! They’re bad for our economy!"
- Undocumented immigrants paid $10.6 billion in taxes in 2010, and those in California paid $2.2 billion
- Immigration reform would cause the deficit to shrink by $197 billion over the next decade
- Undocumented immigrants have limited healthcare options and don’t *leech* off of healthcare since they fear deportation and don’t have documents to obtain health insurance, which puts millions of people without insurance because of their immigration status
