Illegals pay taxes?

That is what the Selig Center for Economic Growth says.

Mexicans in Georgia paid about $317 million in state taxes in 2004, according to a report by the University of Georgia’s Selig Center for Economic Growth. The report was presented at a conference Wednesday hosted by the Mexican Consulate General in Atlanta and Emory University.

That tax money represents about 2.4 percent of the state’s collection of personal income tax, sales, use, and property taxes, according to the report.

So, how does that contrast with comments made in yesterday’s debate?  Can we say “Contradistinction“?
