Undocumented can get an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification nember) which
allows them to file witholding taxes yet does NOT give them the right to file
for any social benefits. So they gladly pay without any of the reward.

they are allowed to work here. There is a US program called H1-B that allows
foreign workers to work legally IF the said jobs didn't have any US citizens
capable of doing them. The number of these visas were 500 per year. Trump
signed an EO limiting the amount to 300 but not before Mar-A-Largo was approved
for 100 visas to import cooks, busboys and chambermaids. Meanwhile, the
Maryland crab industry, the fruitgrowers around the country and the food
service industry that depends on these undocumented workers are hurting. Pretty
soon a crab dinner is going to cost more that a lobster...
