How $4.2 Billion In Refundable Tax Credits Went To Illegal Aliens

with one comment

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, announced today that he will be examining how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) gave $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year to illegal aliens – four times the amount from five years ago.

The information was released today in a report issued by the Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration. The Finance Committee has jurisdiction over all tax policy, the IRS and the Department of Treasury.

“The disconcerting findings in this report demand immediate attention and action from Congress and the Obama Administration,” said Hatch. “With our debt standing at over $14.5 trillion and counting, it’s outrageous that the IRS is handing out refundable tax credits, which are spending through the tax code, to those who aren’t even eligible to work in this country. I will be looking at this as soon as Congress returns next week.”

The report found that:

“Although the law prohibits aliens residing without authorization in the United States from receiving most Federal public benefits, an increasing number of these individuals are filing tax returns claiming the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), a refundable tax credit intended for working families.”

$4.2 billion in refundable credits were paid to individuals not authorized to work in the United States in Processing Year 2010.

“[T]he payment of Federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside, and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts Federal law and policy to remove such incentives.”

The question is who is responsible for oversight, will they be held accountable, will they lose their jobs?  Bureaucracies are ripe with waste and fraud, we all get that and to a point we realized it can’t be totally curtailed, but this administration has allowed it to get out of control.  It’s almost as if they just look the other way.

They wouldn’t do that would they?  Not on purpose….

  1. My vote is going to whoever is the frontrunner of the Tea Party, as well as my family, as both Democrats and Democrats have their own decisive agenda’s. Each administration has refused to build the real double fence or enforce the 1986 Immigration Control and reform act. The TEA PARTY will improve on both of these “Rules of Law” and stick like glue to the contents of the U.S. Constitution. As In Article IV, Section 4. That states: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

    The flood of illegal workers almost certainly constitutes an invasion. The TEA PARTY will table any form of Amnesty or Immigration Reform and will apply the statutes in the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli with strict enforcement according to the bill. Any Sanctuary City or State ordinances designed to cater to illegal aliens, will lose federal funding and expect ICE sweeps in the future. E-Verify and “Secure Communities” will no longer be a voluntary measure, but applied as a mandate to every state. The TEA PARTY will amend the 14th Amendment, so 300.000 children of illegal aliens annually can no longer get a foothold in America, to ransack the people’s welfare programs and public assistance.

    AMERICA IS BEGINNING TO TURN INTO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY, WHERE ILLEGAL ALIENS GET A BETTER DEAL THAN US CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS, THROUGH THE LEFTIST PROGRESSIVES—POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

    All new laws will be designed to stop economic illegal aliens from the financial avalanche that is happening now, which includes CHAIN MIGRATION. Each and every Immigration Reform package harvests millions more people CHAIN MIGRATION, which includes the State Dream Acts. All visas will be decided on the skills and qualifications of the person who wishes to immigrate and unwelcome illegal newcomers will be punished harshly for entry. Only the TEA PARTY will enforce our laws, as signified in the living US Constitution. The $113 Billion dollars illegally collected by the IRS to benefit illegal aliens must be ended for good and not be further spiraling out of control because each government refuses to enforce the laws. Blue states like the Sanctuary state of California, must be watched by unbiased referees, to contain illegal aliens from voting. California’s, Nevada’s lax voting laws, need to be revised so everybody must show to forms of official ID, with violators of the law heavy fines and a term in prison.

    As a postscript, that tomorrow President Obama is going to offer a speech on jobs in construction specifically repairing Bridges and highways. We must insure illegal aliens are not employed by criminal contractors, who have encourages this type of violation of our laws. Be a “whistleblower” if you find individuals, who seem suspicious in your occupation and inform ICE or local police Department. Read all the incendiary newspaper and media articles at “American Patrol” that sends the Liberal propaganda activists slinking in dark corners. Lastly, learn of the rot that has propagated in Washington and individual States at “Judicial Watch.”
