The mainstream liberal media caught wind of a story about a undocumented immigrant paying taxes. Of course, they immediately tried spinning it into a narrative of the victimhood of immigrants and how marginalized they are despite the fact they pay taxes. But upon further reflection it turns out the story was not as clean or as accurate as they would have us believe.
A young woman who appears to be millennial age posted a Facebook message and picture of herself allegedly showing herself paying taxes. But it was all a hoax. Turns out she was also a Bernie Sanders supporter. The tax form itself was an empty 1040 form. Last time anyone checked, an unfilled out form does not equate to paying taxes.
Her Facebook post read the following,
“MYTH BUSTER: I, an undocumented immigrant, just filed my taxes and PAID $300 to the state of Arizona. I cannot receive financial aid from the state or federal government for school, I cannot benefit from unemployment, a reduced healthcare plan, or a retirement fund. I think I’m a pretty good citizen. Oh, and there are MILLIONS just like me who pay into a system they will never receive anything from. Wanna tell me again how I should be deported, contribute nothing and only leech off this country while the 1% wealthiest people in this country steal from you everyday? How about you show me yours Donald J. Trump? #HereToStay”
Watch here to see her hoax debunked,
Holding up an empty blank sheet of paper that everyone under the blue sky has access to does not make you a taxpayer. She tried saying her real taxes were stapled to the back of the form. But if she was really trying to prove a point why wouldn’t she show her actual taxes and just redact her social security number and personal information? It makes her look like a liar.
If she is really paying her taxes as a working class member then that should absolutely have that taken into consideration when being declared a citizen. A hard working foreign born individual is better than anyone who was born here but leeches off the government. It seems though she cares more about the attention of posting on social media than she does actually abiding by the law otherwise she would have poster her papers. She did not, because she cannot.
This country has no problem with immigration we have a problem with illegal immigration. There is a big difference.
