What the fuck?!?
This wouldn’t happen if they got stopped at the damned border.
Talk about a tax loophole.
Undocumented workers (READ: ILLEGALS) collected $4.2 billion in a certain tax credit last year, up from less than $1 billion five years ago, according to a new audit.
The report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration looked only at a tax benefit known as the Additional Child Tax Credit, a refundable credit meant for working families. The audit found that as a result of vague U.S. law — as well as an expansion of the tax credit in stimulus legislation and other measures — the number of illegal workers collecting the money has skyrocketed.
The inspector general’s office expressed concern about the trend and urged the IRS and Treasury Department to determine once and for all whether that money should be paid out.
“The payment of federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts federal law and policy to remove such incentives,” the report said.
Ya fuckin’ think? Title 8 of the U.S. Code, sections 1324 and 1325 are pretty clear on the matter.
The report highlighted a quirk in U.S. law. Even people who are not authorized to work are supposed to pay the IRS taxes on their income. Many of those people cannot obtain a Social Security number, so to facilitate this the IRS hands out what are known as Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers — so illegal workers can file returns. However, in doing so many of those workers are claiming tax benefits like the Additional Child Tax Credit. For some, it’s a way of making even more money.
……The report said that if the administration determines the credits should not be paid in the future, then the IRS needs the authority to stop them.
According to the audit, the IRS agreed with that recommendation.
If they’re not authorized to work, chances are, they’re not authorized to be in this country. This “additional child tax credit” aids and abets the anchor baby scam, as well. The illegal alien epidemic costs American taxpayers on average, $113 billion a year. Now we find out that the IRS is allowing them to receive tax credits.
Entry into this country is a privilege, not a right. Illegal aliens are NOT legal residents. They DO NOT have the same rights under the U.S. Constitution afforded to American citizens. The United States does not owe them health care, education, or jobs at taxpayers expense.
The anger of American citizens can no longer be ignored by the ICE, or our elected officials. We are fed up with illegals. We are tired of the increase in crime, the strain on health care, the burden on the economy, and the abuse of the welfare system. The illegal immigration pimps might derive some sort of smug satisfaction from providing them their freedoms and benefits at our expense, but the rest of us are sick of footing the bill for an entire class of derelicts who come here with nothing more than a list of demands.
Memo to the ICE and the Government: Do your jobs.
