Belén Sisa is an Arizona State University student who recently shared a photo of her holding up a blank 1040 tax form on Facebook—and it wasn't just to brag. The 23-year-old shared her tax form for a specific reason: as an undocumented immigrant, she wanted to bust the myth that immigrants never pay taxes.
MYTH BUSTER: I, an undocumented immigrant, just filed my taxes and PAID $300 to the state of Arizona. I cannot receive financial aid from the state or federal government for school, I cannot benefit from unemployment, a reduced healthcare plan, or a retirement fund. I think I'm a pretty good citizen. Oh and there are MILLIONS just like me who pay into a system they will never receive anything from. Wanna tell me again how I should be deported, contribute nothing and only leech off this country while the 1% wealthiest people in this country steal from you everyday? How about you show me yours Donald J. Trump? #HereToStay
