Ali Alexander's "facts" and argument regarding taxes paid by the immigrant population in the US simplistically rationalizes his belief without sufficient analysis of real facts. Mr. Ali before analysis clearly holds the opinion that aliens don't pay enough in taxes when measured against their raw numbers, which are questioned by Mr. Ali to begin with. And in bold brush strokes he concludes that if the total amount of tax and numbers of aliens so paying is less proportionally than the "US population", that means aliens are not pulling their own weight.
This picture, while just facially logical removes the grays from the picture. If we know anything about complex issues like immigration and tax, it's that there's an awful lot of gray.
