Your tax dollars at work: Illegal immigrants get more than $7 BILLION in tax credits this year

obama-constitutionHey it’s just your money. If you want to allow to goverment to waste it on illegal immigrants then have at it. Illegal immigrants could receive about $7.4 billion in tax credits this year because of a ‘loophole’ allows people not authorized to work to reap the government payments with no questions asked.

Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office calculated that, based on recent trends, illegal immigrants could receive roughly $7.4 billion through a provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That’s more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade.
Though illegal immigrants are prohibited from receiving similar tax credits, a quirk in the law allows them to qualify for the child tax credit. And it’s a “refundable” credit, meaning recipients can reap the money — with average checks totaling about $1,800 — even if they’ve paid no taxes.

    Why hasn’t this loophole been closed yet? First thing Congress should do when they return. Ridiculous.
