AOC Argues “Undocumented workers pay more taxes than a lot of major corporations do”

In a new video, Progressive lawmaker AOC argues that the contributions of undocumented workers are often overlooked.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

What gets so overlooked all the time is the contributions that undocumented workers make in the United States. Undocumented workers pay more taxes then a lot of major corporations do.

AOC has made this argument before.

Feb 7th, she tweeted:

Undocumented immigrants pay more in US taxes than Amazon or Facebook do.

Don’t believe me? In 2015 undocumented immigrants paid $20 billion in income taxes – including funding Medicare, Medicaid, & Social Security:

Top corporations routinely pay no federal income taxes. In 2018, 60 of America’s top corporations paid $0.

One Twitter user responded:

An illegal alien stole my identity and worked under my SS #. Yes, they paid into it, but it was ME who had to prove my identity, ME who had to prove my citizenship and ME who had to answer ICE questions and get a new SS card. The ILLEGAL just disappeared, probably doing it again.
