IRS supervisors ignored employees who tried to warn agency higher-ups of fraud in a program designed to collect taxes from immigrants, resulting in the agency paying out potentially bogus refunds, according to an official audit released Wednesday.

“TIGTA found an environment which discourages employees from detecting fraudulent applications,” said J. Russell George, the inspector general.

In the wake of the finding, one congressman called on the IRS commissioner to resign.

No doubt, more orders from the top. After all, we can't interfere with their right to fleece taxpayers, can we?

How can they ignore this? How is this even possible?

For example, investigators said the IRS issued 23,994 refunds to one address in Atlanta, totaling $46 million in refunds.

Makes you wonder if it actually is illegal immigrants or someone in our own government????????

Too much money to be a careless mistake. IMHO

Another thing the Obama administration is doing --- it's giving another large strip along the border away to Mexico -- 30 more miles inside the USA. The "Expanded Border Zone".

Then they basically hand out "Border Crossing Cards" -- they cost only $149 and can be used as they please for 10 years, no more illegal crossing necessary as they can simply walk or drive or ride a bus over the border using these cards.

Once over the border, essentially nothing prevents them from going anywhere beyond the 80 miles -- they can simply decide they're going to Chicago, Denver, Seattle, where ever they want and there is absolutely nothing that alerts the ICE agents when the laser visa holders decide they're staying for good.

https://www.federalregister.gov/arti...ew-mexico#p-38

Under current Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations, certain nonimmigrant Mexican nationals presenting a Border Crossing Card, or other proper immigration documentation, are not required to obtain a CBP Form I-94 (Form I-94), Arrival/Departure Record, if they remain within 25 miles of the border (75 miles in Arizona). This document proposes to amend the DHS regulations to extend the distance these visitors may travel in New Mexico without obtaining a Form I-94 from 25 miles to 55 miles.

There is no Arrival/Departure Record with the Border Crossing Card -- come over very easily with one, stay the rest of your life here, live anywhere you like --- there will be nothing stopping you.

That's what i'm talking about! you know this crap, is not only disgusting, but something really needs to be done about this crap.

What can we the hell do to stop it, nothing really, right?

Too many it seem, are the ones responsible for making things so easy for these lawbreakers. Not right.
Their non actions, need punishment.

Don't expect this stuff to go away, should Obama win election, think about that. It will only get much worse, easier on the lawbreakers, but harder on us Americans.
