Bill Blocks Billions in Child Tax Credits to Illegal Immigrants
New legislation sponsored by Rep. Sam Johnson (R.-Tex.) would block
illegal immigrants from cashing in on the refundable child tax credit and save the federal government tens of billions of dollars.
The Refundable Child Tax Credit Eligibility Verification Reform Act (HR
1956), would amend the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code to require
that taxpayers provide their Social Security number on their tax return
in order to claim the refund.
The refunds claimed by illegal immigrants have grown over the years at
an alarming rate: $924 million in 2005 to $4.2 billion in 2010.
Not one penny should be taken from corporate jet owners while illegal aliens are using the tax code to bilk us out of billions of dollars.
If politicians were serious about getting out of the way of job creations they would stop aiding criminal behavior that sends money out of our country to prop up the economy of Mexico.
