MYTH BUSTER: I, an undocumented immigrant, just filed my taxes and PAID $300 to the state of Arizona. I cannot receive financial aid from the state or federal government for school, I cannot benefit from unemployment, a reduced healthcare plan, or a retirement fund. I think I'm a pretty good citizen. Oh and there are MILLIONS just like me who pay into a system they will never receive anything from. Wanna tell me again how I should be deported, contribute nothing and only leech off this country while the 1% wealthiest people in this country steal from you everyday? How about you show me yours Donald J. Trump? #HereToStay

At last check, this story had been shared over 4,500 times. Belén's message of contributing to a country she's not technically a citizen of rang with a lot of people, causing it to go viral.

Not everyone saw it that way. Belén shared screenshots of messages she had received after the initial post of people angry at her for doing the legal thing.

While the people who sent the messages clearly missed the symbolism of the blank 1040 form, and the fact that she is cannot legally be deported, Belén's story might be strong enough to reach President Donald. Like she said earlier:

Wanna tell me again how I should be deported, contribute nothing and only leech off this country while the 1% wealthiest people in this country steal from you everyday? How about you show me yours Donald J. Trump? #HereToStay

Here to stay, indeed.
