Got some news for you, bruh.
There are automatic deductions from your paycheck for taxes. Even if you claim a ridiculous number of exemptions, you still pay some tax. Social Security taxes are automatic at a set percentage based on your income per paycheck, and all the other taxes are based around that percentage with a deduction for each exemption you claim.
The "they don't pay taxes" argument gets shot to shit when you realize that these automatic taxes being taken out, coupled with the fact the unregistered immigrant can't file a tax return, pays more taxes on their income than a legal citizen under the same circumstances.
The only possible situations where you'd have an unregistered immigrant not paying taxes are if they ran their own small business that was also completely unregistered, or if they were literally always paid in cash, and there are problems with either situation.
In the first, running a small business without it being registered is outright illegal. I understand that they're already breaking laws by working illegally in a country they entered illegally, but this is a different set of laws with a far larger set of warning signs for people to see. You can't advertise an unregistered business without immediately drawing attention to it, and word of mouth is more unreliable and equally risky. If someone is unsatisfied with your work and decides to file a lawsuit, your ass is immediately in the spotlight. Finally, if your business is undocumented, you can't accept credit or debit cards as a form of payment, and you couldn't cash checks (due to check cashing requiring identification and/or a bank account/credit union membership), meaning your business would be "cash only", which leads to the next set of problems.
In the second situation, there's the problem of the "always paid in cash" thing. If your employer is paying you in cash, chances are you're going to get ripped off. That's not the primary issue, but it's a big one, especially when you're unlikely to get decent work to begin with (even if you have both an MD with a specialty in Neurosurgery and a PhD in Astrophysics, without documentation of your identity, you're not even qualified to work at a fucking Walmart or McDonalds). Moving large amounts of cash also draws attention to you, and without any documentation, you're unable to open a bank account or line of credit.
tl;dr: Unless the undocumented immigrant is working solely for cash, they're paying taxes. And, if they're paying taxes without being able to file a tax return, they're going to be overpaying. Finally, if they're working solely for cash, they aren't taking up an extant job.

some kids at my brothers college did a report on penguin biology, i sat in several classes for shits and giggles every now and then even though i didn't attend the college, apparently viral infections are rare in the poles due to extreme cold and many animals can survive some gory mutilations. i sat through his presentations and at the end i had a few questions but would say pwenguns instead of penguins. he was visibly upset with my pronunciation.
also on a couple of occasions if the professor was droning on or a student was being a twat i'd shout "oh fuck this isn't psychology!" then leave or once i said "fuck this gay shit." then moon walked out of the class very slowly making unbreaking eye contact with the speaker.
