If they are paying taxes, then by definition, they should not be illegal. This is just an attempt by the GOP to further crush families of color into poverty, and from there, into the slave plantations/profit prisons which they see as cash engines instead of atrocities. No, if the immigrants are paying taxes, then we should do fairly by them, and put the grifters (like our President and most likely over half of Congress itself) into prison to let them see what it's like being sweatshop labor in a shop where they shoot you for trying to quit. Also? Those of Congress who do pay their taxes, and therefore do not get sent to prison? They get put on Medicaid at once -- if it's good enough for our Veterans, it's good enough for our Congress.
