June's By the Numbers

June , 2006

According to new analysis by the research company Standard & Poor’s, taxes paid by illegal workers who work under false Social Security numbers typically go directly to the federal level, where they are invested in an “earnings suspense file.” If those taxes were diverted to state and local governments, says the report, they could help fund education.

$7.2 billion:
Taxes credited in 2003 to a trust fund based on wage items placed in the suspense file

$1.8 million:
Number of undocumented students in U.S. school districts

$11.2 billion:
Cost per year to educate those students
