Illegal aliens want OUT of Mexico and CentAm but pull their dirty, immoral stuff here on top of simply living here against our laws. Hispanics as a group wonder why prejudice AND out and out HATE is becoming worse?!? Unless our Chicanos speak OUT against the illegal ones, the damage may be done.

It will never happen. The polls prove that out.

Simple. Stop ALL child tax credits. Children suck up resources, what with free education, free meals at school, free medical for low income parents, etc. Why are we paying people to have kids? Why are my taxes going to pay for your kids but you get the tax credit? Stop it. That way they can't say it's racially motivated.

The Treasury Department reports that illegal immigrants filing tax returns using the Individual Tax Identification Number are receiving more than $1.5 billion each year from the federal government through the Child Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit.


Quote:
An illegal immigrant cannot qualify for a legitimate Social Security number to use to file income tax returns or for any other purposes. Thus, a major facilitator for illegal immigrant access to income tax-based welfare benefits is the nine-digit Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) established by the IRS in 1996. It was initially established for people like foreign investors, who are required to file U.S. income tax forms but can not legally obtain a Social Security number. However, the IRS has allowed illegal immigrants to apply for and use the ITIN for filing income taxes returns related to income earned in the United States. Consequently, the ITIN quickly became a vehicle for illegal immigrants to obtain refunds of part or all of income taxes withheld (if any) from their pay and for obtaining refundable tax credits above and beyond any withholding. All but a small minority of people using ITINs today are illegal immigrants.2

Last year alone illegals from Mexico scammed the US out of $40 million in EIC.

I just thought you would have some insight on the specificity of your claim...

For EITC it takes Social Security numbers for everyone in the household, if determined to be fraudulent, how is it linked to illegal aliens exclusively from Mexico?...

Google gives me nothing better than Rubenstein, whom I know is wrong, and no official data...

You're kidding right? You really know absolutely nothing about the US taxpayer system. It does not require everyone in a household having a SSN in order to file EIC.

As a former IRS tax fraud investigator, I am not at liberty to go into detail about how the EIC tax fraud was exclusively linked to illegals from Mexico. I will say this, there are systems in place that enables the IRS to track any and everyone who files a tax return, fake, stolen SSN, ITIN's included.

I have to second this. I think that they may have been thinking about something else on the return forms.
