    (immigration judge), this could be a sticky issue if left up to the discretion of individual deciders.  I have seen the "pay back taxes before you get asylum" argument with my own eyes.  In the family-based green card context (marriage-based, for example), this issue comes up a lot less, but that has more to do with immediate family member USC rights being transferred to the alien, I think.  The "super fee" or "penalty" should be high enough to take this into account.  Proving/determining the amount of payable back taxes would strain the system to even worse inefficiency, IMHO.
