Posted on 03/30/2013 5:55:30 AM PDT by Texas Fossil
A WTHR-TV Indianapolis investigative report exposes a fraudulent scheme wherein the IRS is sending $4.2 billion per year to illegal immigrants as an "additional child tax credit" for children who don't even live in the U.S.
Further, the IRS and Congress have been ignoring the scheme for years. The Inspector General's office has repeatedly identified the problem in audit after audit. The IG, Russell George says, "The magnitude of the problem has grown exponentially," but the IRS is doing nothing to stop it.
"It's so easy it's ridiculous," the tax preparer whistleblower who exposed the fraud admits. Names are simply listed on the IRS form. "The more you put on there, the more you get back." No questions asked the check's in the mail.
Below is the video of the shocking report.

Foster Friess posted this story on twitter the other day and it was all over the place.
This is sure to inspire all Americans to pay their raising taxes to these executive order crooks.
Obama and his running dogs deserve a keel hauling of the first order.
Welcome to the Immigrant Kingdom of the United States of Zimbabwe.
Why not Impeach instead of just Screech?
Theres 4 billion dollars the sequester could make up for.
Do our politicians understand what would happen if something like this was going on 200 years ago? Are we so ‘civilized’ now that we’re supposed to grab our ankles and just say thank you?
Thanks for the link.
I did not see it there until today.
Twitter receives a lot of criticism, but individuals can bypass the news system on obscure articles and they are normally picked up by the news.
It is what it is.
Here is a place for “immigration reform”. Confiscate all tax refunds to illegals. And, make them pay for educating their kids at public schools.
No criticism, just mentioning that I had seen it.
You’re right about twitter, its a great place for news.
Foster’s campfire blog.
I’m still waiting for the investigative journalist with the courage to expose the double- and triple-dipping (multiple names, multiple addresses, multiples collecting from same address, etc.)
How to scam has to be common knowledge, if so many are in on it.
Ping for your library.
Everything these people do is income redistribution from those who work honestly for it to slackers who vote democrat.
And democrats and some republicans want to give them amnesty.
IRS and Congress at work,expected.
Yep. Destructive work.
If an income tax was imposed by the Federal Government 200 years ago, all parties involved would have been drawn and quartered one by one until it was repealed and the Constitution amended to prohibit imposition of any tax on any citizen.
Whose social security numbers are they using?
This really makes me angry, because the IRS came down on us like the fist of angry god when THEY got our middle child’s SS number transposed in their records and refigured our tax return 3 years running.
Didn’t matter how many times I sent them copies of her BC and SS card. I finally had to involve our US Senator.
As I understand the article they have a taxpayer identification number, not a SSN. They are not citizens.
Most pay NO taxes, hence cannot do this.
When you consider the democrats are completely obsessed with sodomy and the normalization of it, kinda makes sense, doesn’t it?
Thanks. I always wondered about this.
An illegal defrauding the government? Thought they just came here because they wanted to work.
The original television report is almost a year old. First I’ve heard of it. Amazing. It should have been and still should be a political issue.
Another absolutely incredible fact is that some on the right call illegal aliens illegal immigrants. Immigration is a legal process. These interlopers are not immigrants.
Nope, it’s totally credible. Government at every level believes it can do whatever it wants.
The Constitutional restraint is off and it was removed by generations of government teachers not teaching American liberty, but European socialism.
Keep in mind that socialism is a direct assault on Christian morality. Without Christian morality Western Civilization is doomed.
That's what "tolerance" is all about. The word literally means the willingness to accept error, the opposite of striving for accuracy, precision, and quality.
That was ONCE a quarter of the budget of NASA.
Now .... it is used for Mosque repair (NASA, that is).
Agree with all 3 of you.
Is this one back in the news? I posted this 2 months ago and thought it simply did not catch on.
On Wednesday, I watched a video clip made by Glen Beck predicting more corruption scandal fireworks within 24 hours. Have heard nothing about that yet. Are we waiting for another huge shoe to drop?
The IRS players are now practicing the Mexican Hat Dance.
Can this administration be found any more corrupt? Yeah... I know...stupid question.
When does the music stop?
Corrupt & EVIL.
Obozo lies 24/7 and his defenders will not stop at the restraints of law to protect him.
And Obozo’s actions indicate to me that he serves the Father-of-Lies. EVIL.
That is Obozo’s plan. To destroy the US by breaking the system of government where it cannot be repaired.
Possibly steps past that. Bring on a civil war.
This is an injustice
Ah, on the contrary, the leftists think this is totally “social justice”.
We in America have it too good, and we must reduce our lifestyle in order that others can live a better life.
When the taxpaying middle class is destroyed.
This is a $4.2 billion dollar argument in favor of the FairTax!
I remembered saying that and had to look when. Someone researching IRS stories i see. Pretty good one in context of whats occurred since.
