The immigration reform debate is complicated and filled with nuance, case in point is the discussion over whether undocumented workers pay income tax and whether they should be made to do so as a requisite of legalizing their status.

Fox News Latino takes the issue up in a recent article. It outlines the issue in it’s most obvious complexity: many (if not most) undocumented do, in fact, pay income tax; they need a special “Individual Tax Identification Number” to do so; but many are afraid that the number will be used against them; and they may need the number as an “original document” in the event that immigration reform is approved and they want to make their status legal.

It’s a huge catch-22 with misconceptions and fears thrown in.

It’s worth the read.
