Illegal Aliens Pocket $4.2 Billion in Tax Credits (via The Foxhole)


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.

    TAXPAYERS! CALL AND DEMAND REP. LAMAR SMITH E-VERIFY LAW.

    Assume– you are an illegal alien and are ready to cross the Southern border, wouldn’t you hesitate knowing that if caught you are going to be charged with a felony? Same with so called tourists, students or others coming in by passenger plane, that if you commit perjury by signing your entry document and stay on a expired visa you are going to be charged with a felony. Nobody in their right mind is going to enter America, other than dangerous criminals, terrorists or other foreigners with elicit intentions.

    THE TEA PARTY NATION—DOESN’T SPEAK FOR THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF TEA PARTY MEMBERS.

    THE MORE I CONTEMPLATE THAT ITS ONLY A CIVIL OFFENSE, THE MORE I UNDERSTAND THAT NO GOVERNMENT SINCE THE 1954 EISENHOWER ADMINISTRATION HAVE EMPOWERED ANY SERIOUS INTENTIONS TO SEAL THE BORDER–TRACK IMMIGRANTS FROM ABROAD, PROSECUTE ILLEGAL ALIENS WITH A FELONY CONVICTION. TRY ENTERING ANOTHER COUNTRY WITHOUT PERMISSION, ESPECIALLY ACROSS OUR SOUTHERN BORDER, YOU ARE GOING TO BE IMPRISONED OR DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE.

    I keep on hearing that illegal aliens are not taking American jobs. My step daughter’s common law husband, his cousin found him some extra work at a Solar Company in Los Angeles. He had previously always been in construction, but after being laid off, he went back to school, hoping become an intricate part of the Solar Industry. What he really got him angry about, was during the work on the roof of an educational complex, where they were installing the equipment, nobody spoke English and the supervisor who managed the ten men team, and only communicated in broken English himself. Asking another supervisor about the installers, he stated they were all fresh young faces and had been recruited in Tijuana. AS FOR FARMERS AND MEGA AGRICULTURAL CONCERNS, THEY DO NOT PAY FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN HEALTH OR THEIR CHILDREN’S SCHOOLS—TAXPAYERS CARRY THAT BURDEN.

    This rampant violation of our immigration laws is not an isolated case, as it is a widespread breakdown of the US Government failing to defend American citizens. One of the biggest violators is contractors and sub-contractors who are using cheap labor and therefore able to lower their bids, so established firms cannot compete. This is not just California, but the whole Southwest to the East coast and has been propagating for years. It’s a shame there isn’t a website that describes stories exactly like this, relating to businesses using illegal immigrants and migrants; jobs that could be accomplished by every occupational American?

    But NumbersUSA has an very interesting grid that illustrates the great advantages of a permanent federal government E-Verify, that will initiate a zero-tolerance law that no business can escape from.

    In a prior job speech by President Obama, he told the national audience, he intends to invigorate more jobs, in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, by repairing bridges, roads and schools. The question to ask—how has this administration is going to stop the illegal aliens stealing these jobs. We already know illegal aliens are being hired at cheaper rates than the average American; receiving no health or other benefits. We also know that unions are not interested in who is allowed to work and whose not. Then we have federal, state and private contractors, who will use illegal aliens to underbid honest companies. Even this goes even deeper as private contractors, will hire sub-contractors, who will also violate immigration laws by recruiting foreign workers as what happened in New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina devastated the region.

    On the NumbersUSA website, the whole bill is clarified, and just need enthusiastic voters to bombard the Capitol? Already the same activist suspects are trying to undermine this urgent bill. One big bare-faced lie is the TEA PARTY opposes this law. What they are not informing you concerning this is just one Tea Party group, The TEA PARTY NATION that is just one of thousands of independent entities, as the TEA PARTY is just ordinary Americans , who have been kicked around too long. The majority of TEA PARTY members are adamant there will be no more Amnesties. No clandestine small Amnesties that have been happening for years, millions entering annually. True TEA PARTY leaders will rescind any Sanctuary City or State policies, with refusal a loss of federal funds.

    Judicial Chairman Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act last Thursday morning was marked-up for discussion on mandatory E-Verify. The Legal Workforce Act would require national use of E-Verify for all new hires for 100% of businesses within 2 years of enactment. Earlier today, Chairman Smith reintroduced the bill as H.R.2885 with a new subsection that requires the Department of Homeland Security to establish a support center for states that wish to help enforce the law.

    BE A WHISTLE BLOWER AND HELP YOUR FELLOW AMERICAN TO FIND A JOB.

    This piece of information that should be repeated:

    For the illegal aliens already working, there is an effective answer to this issue as well. If you are suspicious of competition using illegal aliens, Etc, Contractors in Construction, assembling products or any manual work, contact the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division at 1-866-DHS-2ICE (866-347-2423). According to one of our members of NumbersUSA who spoke with an ICE agent, “the mere ‘suspicion’ that a company’s employees are illegal aliens is all that is necessary to make the call to commence an investigation.” He added, “Law enforcement organizations cannot, and do not, expect the public to be experts in determining whether someone is committing a crime, so they provide a safe harbor approach to informing.” SEE SOMETHING–SAY SOMETHING!

    If you are disgusted by the mockery of our immigration laws, reach for that phone and call you’re Representative at 202-224-3121. Don’t wait–this is a very powerful bill that could help millions of Americans find work, especially in the lower incomes. When 20 million Americans are jobless, being only finding temporary or part time work, this should be not the time for hiring foreign nations. My commentary cannot possibly cover the whole travesties perpetrated on Americans, but all evidence of years of failure, unconcern and corruption is available at NumbersUSA, American Patrol and Judicial Watch. There are just three of the hundreds of serious pro-sovereignty organization, fighting the open border zealots.

    Public Warning: In 2012 we need strict oversight of our voting rights? Democrats and liberals tend to look the other way, as illegal aliens may flock into polling places. Illegal aliens have and still do vote in the general elections. A close eye should be kept on all registration forms that includes Absentee ballots that succumb to fraud, ACORN is not dead, just changed its names; they have committed registration fraud before and will again.
