The viral story of Belen Sisa has been all over the internet in the past few days. She is an illegal immigrant that went on a rant saying that she pays taxes to the state of Arizona, so that means that she contributes and should not be subjected to mistreatment and be offered the same opportunities as citizens. She also took the opportunity to bash President Donald Trump, saying that if she, as a non-citizen, has to pay taxes, then he should release his.
In the video that was released by NowThis on Twitter, you can see her holding up her 1040, where she said she paid $300 to the state of Arizona. James Allsup quickly made a reaction video pointing out a few of Belen’s errors.
For starters, if she paid taxes to the STATE of Arizona, why is she holding up a federal 1040 in her video? Additionally, the 1040 she is holding up is completely BLANK. There is no proof at all that she actually filed her taxes and paid them. Big mistake for someone who is complaining that President Donald Trump did not release his taxes.
From Young Conservatives:
First is the typical leftist pitch about the 1%. Sisa is purportedly a Bernie Sanders supporter. It shows. No facts, lot of fury against the evil 1%. But it’s those evil people in the top percentages that pay most of the taxes in this country, as Allsup points out. The second is that if she just paid her taxes to the state of Arizona, why is she holding up a federal 1040? Just a tad fishy… The third is that federal 1040 is blank, it’s not filled out. So how do we have any proof at all that this woman even paid any taxes whatsoever? We know that Trump paid millions in taxes and more than Sisa probably ever will pay in her life. So where are her posted taxes so we can verify her claim?
