Senator: Illegals to Receive over $7 Billion in Tax Credits

A loophole in the US tax code, whose revision Harry Reid deliberately prevented, resulted in over $4 billion going to illegal immigrants in one year. That number is poised to top $7 billion this year, based on analysis from the office of Senator Jeff Sessions.

Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office calculated that, based on recent trends, illegal immigrants could receive roughly $7.4 billion through a provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That’s more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade.

Although illegal immigrants cannot receive basic tax credits, they do qualify for the child tax credit, a refundable credit, under current law. Lacking a Social Security number, they are given an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to file returns.

As a refundable credit, an illegal immigrant could end up paying no taxes at all and still receive the credit as a refund. Such refunds have averaged approximately $1,800 in previous years.

Last year, a report by the Inspector General recommended that Congress close the loophole. Senator Sessions co-sponsored a bill this year to bar illegal immigrants from the credit. But that effort was blocked by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    It is incredible and not the only strange happening. My water bill was double, so I called, was told Morgan Stanley gambled with the money and lost. Hold on bets is yet to come. My housekeeper who has a healty suspicion of gift, told me “I received another bill for my utilities but was told I did not have to pay because I have a credit” This has happened for several month this month again. I worry they wll stick me with a big bill but they said every one has the same credit” She checked, right, all Mexican legal and illegal in her area are given credit” I wrote higher up and told them Morgan Stanley may have caused the loss but they are not inclined to play Santa Claus. So, any one care too check how many orge free ride are given at our expenses. As for Reid his election rest with the Nevada Mexican and \to make sure they can vote they send illegals an official letter to report for jury duty, they are denied as non citizen BUT they keep the formal Pass on the document which is accepted for voting. I checked with the Court in Nevada and they said it is correct but the law was instituted to give the Illegal a document to get a driver license. It is the law in Nevada in California and?check, not Obama this time been there a while,
    Why do we have to take it, Reid is very disliked in Nevada his election rests with these favors to illegal, and the stub act as an identity card with citizenship.
