As a native Iowan and excellent customer of
the Internal Revenue Service, I am writing to ask
for your assistance. I have contacted the
Department of Homeland Security in an effort to
determine the process for becoming an illegal
alien and they referred me to you.
My primary reason for wishing to change my
status from U.S. Citizen to illegal alien stems
from the bill which was recently passed by the
Senate and for which you voted. If my
understanding of this bill's provisions is
accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the
United States for five years, all I need to do to
become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and
income taxes for three of the last five years. I
know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious
to get the process started before everyone figures
Simply put, those of us who have been here
legally have had to pay taxes every year so I'm
excited about the prospect of avoiding two years
of taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is
there any way that I can apply to be illegal
retroactively? This would yield an excellent
result for me and my family because we paid heavy
taxes in 2004 and 2005.
Additionally, as an illegal alien I could
begin using the local emergency room as my primary
health care provider. Once I have stopped paying
premiums for medical insurance, my accountant
figures I could save almost $10,000 a year.
Another benefit in gaining illegal status is
that my daughter would receive preferential
treatment relative to her law school applications,
as well as 'in-state' tuition rates for many
colleges throughout the United States for my son.
Lastly, I understand that illegal status
would relieve me the burden of renewing my
driver's license and making those burdensome car
insurance premiums. This is very important to me
given that I still have college age children
driving my car.
If you would provide me with an outline of the
process to become illegal (retroactively
if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I
would be most appreciative.
you for your assistance.
