Illegal Aliens Stand to Gain Legal Presence and Big Fat Checks from the IRS

IRSAs if subverting the Constitution to give millions of illegal aliens legal status and work authorization isn’t enough, there’s more. According to testimony by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen on Tuesday, beneficiaries of the Obama amnesty are in line to collect billions of dollars from the Treasury in the form of retroactive Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC).

Koskinen told a Senate committee that illegal aliens who filed returns using Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) will be eligible to amend their returns for the three previous years once they receive valid Social Security numbers (SSNs). By statute, ITIN filers are ineligible for the EITC (although they’ve been able to collect billions of dollars through the Additional Child Tax Credit program, which most likely why they have been filing returns). Because the overwhelming majority of illegal aliens are low wage earners, a large percentage will become eligible for the EITC once they can file using an SSN.

The Obama amnesty is truly the gift that keeps giving…with our money, of course.

      i say all Americans file exempt for taxes at our jobs including military, police, national guard, and anyone else. Then when it comes tax time we send in 20%. This way we are paying a fair tax and with all the above mentioned with their guns and ours there would not be anyone left to enforce the current tax system, If anyone tries we then remove them from office before they can blink. We also need to keep our guns or at lease keep the right to own them even if you hate guns. They could come in handy if Govt. tried to stop this method of tax payment to them.

    Whatever the illegals want, they get from Obama. They will be getting billions in free handouts from the American taxpayer. Consider, if people work hard their entire life and are fortunate to have a small pension that as a couple amounts to more than $34K a year, the IRS taxes 50% of their social security. And yet, they are using that to give billions to illegals. What a country!!

    Let’s not forget the fraud that comes with all of this people being granted a free pass. Break the law and be rewarded Here in my state of California, we have a governor that follows the same agenda and has in fact granted free or instate tuition to illegals as well as financial assistance while tax paying citizens do not qualify

    No one on the Obama side has ever said why the US is annexing Mexico? What is the purpose of allowing endless armies of 3rd grade educated, non English speaking illegals into the US? Seems like a very simple question.

      NO! This is the reconquista of which Mexicans have dreamed ever since they lost the war with the U.S. The United States to them is greater Azatlan. I do believe the U.S. government should extend help to the Mexican government by controlling the cross-border traffic in firearms, by getting drug use in this country under control and by offering Nieto Pena help in reforming the police and justice systems in Mexico. It seems that, except for the illegal alien crisis, we ignore our near abroad. Bad diplomatic policy. But to make up for it by allowing uncontrolled immigration? Ugh!

        Although the Mexican-American War has been largely forgotten by most Americans, it has not been forgotten by Mexico. The losers of wars often remember them much longer than the winners. Just as more people in the American South remember the Civil War than people in the rest of the country. As another example, the nation of China has not forgotten being conquered by the British in the First and Second Opium Wars which took place in the mid-19th century, while the wars have been largely forgotten in Britain. Mexico is getting its revenge.

    Obama needs to have all the illegals move to his castle,,,, and have them rip him off n his family too see if he likes it when he gives away his tax dollars to those criminals…

    The Obola Administration is sweetening the pot for illegals by providing a cash reward. Illegals claim to be “law abiding” but their very existance as illegal proves otherwise. These people have all the rights and benefits provided by their home countries as long as they live in their own home countries, not here.

    Write, email and/or call your Representatives and Paul Ryan and tell them no “refundable” credits for “noncitizens.”
    There is 20 to 30 billion dollars lost in fraudulent tax claims a year. Not to mention other frauds.
    The country cannot survive on fraud (much imported), nor can it survive on single parents, who have very little to contribute -(single parents are the new norm in this country!

      Snarky, this mess has evolved from plenty of “bad” legislators pandering to “big biz” – tax services and cheap employers. Not just this administration! A lack of laws, rules and regulations opens doors to corruption and poor governing – It has gone on for many years, by both administrations.

          So true, and he followed the pro amnesty bible with no thought of rectifying the costs and expenses of this recklessness. Much less rules to send back those who have filed false claims, tax returns, used false or stolen id’s, committed other white collar crimes or overstayed visas. Fraud is rampant!
          The statement – they pay taxes is only in the immigration of the pro amnesty. Maybe social security and medicare taxes for their illegal wages – but the government should change that tax to a RTW (right to work tax ) and employer match. The ones in this country illegally now should not be given priorities of any American benefits-only the ones born in the country or those in the cue now to become citizens. Otherwise, we need to add a new immigration bill that anyone coming to the country illegally or overstaying Visas – will not be eligible to apply for any permanency.
          Much is provided for this group of people thru churches, groups and government programs -not taxable or direct purchases.
          Put the heat on the Republicans as well as the President.
          As far as the Social Security tax, the upper incomes draw appr., 40% of their contributions, the lower incomes draw 80%-100% of their contributions.
          Keep supporting FAIR and Numbers USA and write to your Representatives. Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama stands up for us little Americans better than anyone else in D.C. Send him a thank you and tell him to keep fighting -(He has the statistics and charts to show the wretched “ll effects of IA’s,

      So right, with the middle-class fading away and more taking out of the tax system without contributing –
      The country eventually may be morphing into “No Man’s Land!”

        Yes, if you contact your Representatives, and Paul Ryan and Senator Sessions of Alabama and ask them to
        bring this to the “forefront” and correct this – evidently decided by the tax lobbyists and the pro amnesty groups.
        Read earlier about the “tax fraud” for these credits – 20 to 30 billion dollars – much of it coming from non citizens.
        Newspapers are full of “horror” stories of “tax fraud.’
        Order the book, “The Great American Tax Dodge” (1999) and you will see this started many years ago-
        instead of fixing or controlling the problem – laws were made to make it much easier to “rip” off the government and citizens. What’s a couple trillion dollars, here and there???????
