To prove the inextricable value and nature of undocumented immigrants, The #UndocuMoney team created #UndocuMoney to highlight just how much undocumented immigrants are a part of this economy.

The idea of Undocumoney was the idea of Marisol Soto. As described on the website, Marisol "hopes that through this campaign we can educate and show people the real contributions undocumented immigrants like her and her family make to the economy. We help make this country a better place."

NBC News reported that one of the studies, by the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) shows that undocumented immigrants paid $11.2 billion in state and local taxes in 2010.

The issue of undocumented immigrants is a hot topic in the United States, particularly with the 2016 presidential election coming up. Tell us in the comments what you think about the enormous amount of money that is reportedly being contributed to the U.S. economy.
