The IRS Immigration Fraud Scandal (Rubio, Ryan losing credibiltiy over amnesty) ^ | 6/18/13 | Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 06/18/2013 5:45:39 AM PDT by cotton1706

Marco Rubio.

Paul Ryan.

The IRS.

Illegal immigration.

And fraud to the tune of billions..

Now there’s a combustible mix.

Let’s start with the IRS, illegal immigration and fraud. We’ll come back in a minute to Senator Rubio and Congressman Ryan.

For those who came in late, a year before the IRS scandals burst onto the scene in early May of 2013, an alert investigative reporter for WTHR-Indianapolis (Channel 13), Bob Segall by name, produced a stunning piece of journalism. Segall’s video report is found here and we will quote from his story for the basics. The tale begins when an Indiana tax preparer, who requests anonymity, comes to Segall to alert the investigative reporter to a major league tax fraud. The bold print for emphasis is mine.

“We’re talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that’s taking place and no one is talking about it,” he (the tax preparer) said.

The scheme involves illegal immigrants — illegal immigrants who are filing tax returns.

How it works The Internal Revenue Service says everyone who is employed in the United States — even those who are working here illegally — must report income and pay taxes. Of course, undocumented workers are not supposed to have a social security number. So for them to pay taxes, the IRS created what’s called an ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. A 9-digit ITIN number issued by the IRS provides both resident and nonresident aliens with a unique identification number that allows them to file tax returns.

While that may have seemed like a good idea, it’s now backfiring in a big way.

Just say “no” to yet more immigration handouts.

We are facing a competition internationally, for our very soul. Seriously. We are no longer the world’s number one manufacturer.

China is.

China is INCREASING the portion of world’s products, yet China with a huge portion of the world’s population - has a completely closed immigration system.

We import hundreds of billions of dollars from China with no corresponding export market, we are selling our productivity, we are selling our very future.

Yet these nitwits want to continue selling off American industry to a closed race-based economy while we are blindly importing tens of millions of illegal immigrants?


Wake up Rubio. Bring back US manufacturing. First.

Then do something about immigration in (other) countries, before further breaking our own maxed-out system.

Fer crying out loud.

Losing credibility?

When one deals with a dim-bulb-crat, the loss is immediate and complete.

One does not deal with lying, shifty, sleazy progressives.

(Sorry for the redundancy there...”progressive” says it all.)

We are being sold down the river, by people like Rubio, Jeb Bush, McCain, Graham ,and others who are giving our country to illegal immigrants.

All for a vote they might get.

When the earned income tax credit and child care credits popped up, I began screaming this is nothing more than federal subsidies for business which do not pay either minimum or sustainable wages. I wrote letters to the editor about it to the point I began getting personal mail saying I was not compassionate. I used to respond to them with a three word phrase: GFY.

Now I find out I was missing the point, it also goes to support people in a foreign country too. I am beyond words how much I despise the IRS in particular and this elected government in general for this mess. I don’t think our foreign policy needs be augmented with funds from the US Treasury over and above what is appropriated by Congress (and that total should be zero anyway).

Rubio and Ryan are lying through their teeth.

I wouldn’t send a dime to either of them.

I would like to be able to tell Rubio, Ryan et al whats the big rush to pass a huge immigration bill? These illegals have been here for years. If they wait another 12 months there will be another million more to give amnesty to.

Agree with that but the article a real eye opener on lots of levels. I'm passing this one on. A scandal a day now? "Something every day." . .

Pray for America and prepare.

Small correction: all for a vote they will NEVER get (IMO).

As far as sold down the river, I’d say it’s name is Styx and we’re actually swirling around a whirlpool.
