How profitable is it to be an illegal?

Very. In Kenner, Louisiana, police uncovered a scam in which illegals file tax returns with fake W-2s in order to collect unearned tax refunds. The AP reports:

Police say [illegal immigrant Marvin] Baca was arrested and confessed to a scam, saying he has been selling fictitious W-2 forms for $1,500 to other Hispanics who are in the country illegally.

Police say illegal Hispanics purchase fictitious W-2 forms and file false tax returns with the government to receive a refund.

Baca was charged with one count of identity theft and two counts of forgery.
The joke is on honest citizens who live on what's left of our hard-earned income after we pay the taxes while illegals don't work have to work at all and yet the IRS gives them a "refund."

Could the IRS be more incompetent? Nearly all employers now file W-2s electronically. Yet, the IRS writes checks to people who shouldn't be in this country based on W-2s that they don't bother to match to employer submitted forms?
