Taxes for Undocumented Immigrants

Immigrants have always been labeled as “other.” In a court of law, they are still called “aliens,” a dehumanizing term that once again separates immigrants from the rest of society.

This stereotype may be partially because of the belief that undocumented immigrants do not pay taxes, but this could not be further from the truth.
