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.
By federal law, these people are not even supposed to be working. Therefore, they should not be filing and collecting money from U.S. taxpayers.
Liberals like to tell us that the illegals also pay taxes - but they do not. 49% of ALL workers pay ZERO tax. Illegals, usually earning less than American workers, certainly fall into that category. If, in fact they are paying taxes, then it would appear they are doing jobs that Americans WOULD do. Ergo, they would be taking jobs away from Americans.
So, which is it, liberals? Are they taking jobs away from Americans, or are they getting a free ride and free tax money?
In either case, it is very, very wrong and we need to put a stop to it.
