I started out with having an ITIN for multiple reasons. I always thought that for an ITIN you had to be a legal alien but when illegals can get ITIN's , drivers licenses ,etc. then it seems that legally coming here is rewarded the same as being illegally coming here.

I know that foreign home owners who become a landlord als can get and require an ITIN to be able to report taxes on rental income. But that is a legal transaction.

A big reason why non legal and non resident aliens can get ITINs is for tax season. If they have a resident or citizen spouse it's against tax law to file as single. The IRS has made it known that they're available regardless of status. Even most snowbirds coming down from Canada now are needing to obtain one to file taxes as they exceed substantial presence while maintaining legal status.

Unless we get another Obama kind of President but under this president I don't think having an anchor baby will help an illegal aliens much.

In top of that the baby has to be 22 to be able to endorse the parents.

I believe that anchor babies should be eliminated for legal aliens too. It shouldn't be like a trophy baby.
21, not 22.
