Hill Republican: Stimulus aids illegal immigrantsJan 29 12:02 PM US/Eastern
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
Associated Press Writer
145 Comments WASHINGTON (AP) - The $800 billion-plus economic stimulus measure making its way through Congress could steer government checks to illegal immigrants, a top Republican congressional official asserted Thursday.
The legislation, which would send tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple, expressly disqualifies nonresident aliens, but it would allow people who don't have Social Security numbers to be eligible for the checks.
Undocumented immigrants who are not eligible for a Social Security number can file tax returns with an alternative number. A House-passed version of the economic recovery bill and one making its way through the Senate would allow anyone with such a number, called an individual taxpayer identification number, to qualify for the tax credits.
A revolt among GOP conservatives to similar provisions of a 2008 economic stimulus bill, which sent rebate checks to most wage earners, forced Democratic congressional leaders to add stricter eligibility requirements. That legislation, enacted in February 2008, required that people have valid Social Security numbers in order to get checks.
The GOP official voiced concerns about the latest economic aid measure on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss it publicly.
Republicans have already blasted the package for including what they argue is wasteful spending and omitting tax cuts for wealthier people and businesses they say are needed to jump-start the anemic economy. Not a single Republican voted for an $819 billion version of the plan when it passed the House on Wednesday. GOP senators arranged a midday news conference to voice their concerns.

It's NOT about "stimulus", it's about special program, starved Democrats, engaging in Social Engineering.

Hmm. How are they going to be able to distinguish who's illegal and who's not if they don't have to have a SS number.

In my opinion, many illegal aliens have stolen social security numbers which are very real. Obama is spending money he doesn't have. How is this change? He's just adding to the countries problems. The common man will benefit very little, from any of the stimulus programs. The country is destine to go broke and stay broke with so many Crooks in the political world.

Obama is for "One World Order" and he will prove it trying to legalize 20+ million illegal aliens. What no one tells Americans, is that for us to give the world a hand up, we must take a step down. We are on a road to destruction! If more Americans don't wake up, they won't have a country to wake up to.

* Note I highlighted "trying", because we will defeat him if he trys!

Illegal aliens received the last stimulus checks, and they will again benefit from the generous USA. Our system of checks and balances is too inept to prevent it, and they know it. They must marvel at all of the goodies they receive by illegally living in this country. Why on earth would they ever want to leave this tax-funded pot of gold?

I've said that all along, it's not the jobs it's the assisted living situation they all benefit from. What that means is that when joe taxpayer who's been paying taxes for 20 years and gets canned won't have near enough social services that he or she deserves because it's been doled out to Illegal Immigrants.

So you are making 10 bucks an hour painting, along come a bunch of people that say they will do it for 3-4 bucks an hour. What are you gonna do? Work 120 hours a week to make what you were making or find something different? This is what has happened with Illegals undercutting labor. The only jobs Americans won't do is because the wages of those jobs have been slammed by peasants.
