ID and Tax

It is past time that illegal immigrants in this country and the people who employ them pay their fair share. No one should get a free ride. That's why TexasGOPVote.com supports a system where undocumented people would be issued tamper-proof IDs, would be taxed at a higher rate than American citizens, and would be required to work for employers who deduct and match taxes. Find out more about the problems we face and the solution we support in the articles below.

Since the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) came into force, it has been against the law for illegal immigrants to work in the United States.
With the United States experiencing rapid economic growth and the lowest unemployment rate it has seen in sixteen years, labor shortages in several American industries pose one of the most significant threats to our nation’s...
Since President Trump’s administration entered office in 2017, the topic of immigration reform has been a heated point of debate.
It’s not just the DREAMers who will be adversely affected if congress does not legislate some kind of policy to replace DACA; it’s the US economy as a whole.
Responding to President Trump’s cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Congress is moving toward a compromise that could legalize the DREAMers in combination with more immigration...

Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation recently argued that the RAISE Act, a bill introduced by Senators Cotton (R-AR) and Perdue (R-GA), wou
Supporters of the RAISE Act are counting on the media, voters, and policy makers to focus on talking points supporting the bill rather than its actual substance.  Those supporters want the debate over this bill to be “...
The fiscal impact of immigration — how immigrants and their descendants affect government budgets — is a widely debated and contentious issue. Economists overwhelmingly accept the economic gains of immigration, but are less...
It's a simple question really. Why exactly are Republican's so afraid of the topic of Immigration Reform? Immigration Reform is an issue I have been writing about for years. I have come to have a pretty deep understanding of...
Groups like FAIR, NumbersUSA and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) have long worked to deepen and widen a wedge between conservative Hispanic citizens and the Republican Party. Looking at the boards of these...
If you hold a bible, wear a badge, or own a business, you want a common-sense solution to the immigration system,” said Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum, when I interviewed him in...
Unfortunately, the "merit-based" reforms Trump and his allies propose are unlikely to advance any of these aims and, if anything, will hurt American workers by slowing economic growth and eliminating jobs.
FAIR’s report reaches that conclusion by vastly overstating the costs of illegal immigration, undercounting the tax revenue they generate, inflating the number of illegal immigrants, counting millions of U.S. citizens as...
Senators Tillis (R-NC), Lankford (R-OK), and Hatch (R-UT) this week introduced the Solution for Undocumented Children through Careers, Employment, Education, and Defending our Nation (SUCCEED) Act to legalize some DREAMers...
President Trump will — possibly before the weekend - decide whether to keep or cancel Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which allows more than 800,000 unlawful immigrants who were brought here as children to live and...
President Trump campaigned on creating a new U.S. immigration policy that is in the national interest.
President Trump said that he wants a merit-based immigration system that “nations around the world, like Canada, Australia, and many others have.”
Oftentimes it is the subtle things an elected official does that reveals their true conservative nature.  For example, when Republicans like Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Charles Grassley (R-IA), Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and 17 other...
There are many reason why we need to address our national immigration policy. The current system is broken. It is a national security problem. It creates and encourages lawless behavior. But in addition to these problems...
‘Taking Back our Country’ was the theme of our Texas State Convention and the delegates certainly indicated that that is exactly what we plan to do in November. The convention has come and gone and so much happened that my...
