RE :"For aliens, the ITIN is an extremely useful vehicle. Since the IRS isnt required to share its information with any other federal agency, including immigration authorities, the promise of intra-agency confidentiality allows aliens to file tax returns without fear of deportation. At the same time, holding an ITIN enables aliens to authenticate their presence in the United States and prove that they have paid taxes. This information could be crucial if Congress ever enacted an amnesty. The ITINs improper use is once again in the news. The Federation for American Immigration Reform, in its recent analysis entitled Treasury Department Says Illegal Aliens Collection Billions in Tax Credits, revealed that according to the Department of Treasurys Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million. This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. If the household ends up with no additional tax obligationas most alien families do notthen $1,000 is paid to them. Pursuant to the IG report, 72 percent of tax returns filed by ITIN users claimed this credit compared to just 14 percent of returns filed with social security numbers. The generous payment of these benefits represents yet another incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the United States without permission. Providing incentives to aliens, financial or otherwise, is against the law.
This is how it's done.

ANOTHER SCAM IRS payments/EITC claims---can run up to over $3000 per claim. $20 billion is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals. Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities-----falsifying apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.
Imagine the giveways vote-crazed, illegal worshipper Senor Perry is planning.

I am sure you as well as many others at this site and like minded individuals have spoken about various aspects of this scam for a number of years. I can go back into the mid eighties and remember how my neighbor, a Muslim from Lebanon literally bragged about how he would get his family members including his father who was not exactly poor, a electrical engineer who ran a electric installation business in Lebanon, green cards, social security cards, how the father to name one ended up getting total free health care services and eye surgery etc.. all paid for by the US tax payers. Then he would at another time laugh at me indirectly saying how stupid Americans where.
The system(s) all need large overhauls. As the article and your post amplify on, the problem extends well beyond this particular issue. The waste and abuse has been such for so long it is pathetic.
