They pay in a surprising amount, just ask anyone who’s identity has been stolen.
One lady I helped had 4 different jobs in three states, at the same time.
Still took the IRS over a year to clear it up, sort of.

Trooper friend of mine pulled over a car with 4 illegals.
All had the same name and SS#, worked at the same place.
INS didn’t want em.

Good riddance.

On a lighter note, 7 years after being deported a local kid was reunited with his father who finally was allowed back in, legally.
Do it right, I have no problem.
Criminals, I have little time for.
