Undocumented workers collected $4.2 billion in a tax credit last year, up from less than $1 billion five years ago. The Additional Child Tax Credit is a refundable tax credit meant for working families but as a result of a vague U.S. law as well as an expansion of the tax credit in stimulus [read Obama] legislation the number of illegal workers receiving the money has skyrocketed. The payment of 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. Refundable credits can result in refunds even if NO income tax is withheld or paid, the report noted.

And we wonder why the damn country is broke. A lot of the maggots running our government need to be in prison.
Si se puede.
Wonder if the GOP candidates are even paying attention to the ‘secret’ votes they will have to overcome?
America! Land of the free money! No wonder everyone is central and south America are risking their lives and busting their asses trying to get into this country.
Our country is BROKE.
Damn - I just want one of those billions.
Maybe Sheriff Joe Arpiao can get back the 4.2 Billion dollars.
Man, quit complaining about this and certainly quit posting stories if no one is going to do anything about it. This kind of stuff is really getting on my nerves. I can NOT understand why a group of people in the face of armed British unloaded a boatload of tea over an itty bitty tax and then turn around and only complain about what’s going on now which is far worse and do nothing about it. It borders on ridiculous.

Our Depart. of Labor is cooperating with two countries in advising their citizens, in this country illegally, on how to take advantage of US laws.
I suspect we’ll see more of the same under a President Perry. Sorry Perry-tards: you know I’m right. Mittens is going to hammer him on these types of issues, even though he would probably be even worse.
registering all City of Houston voters here:
The people who want to do something about it are outnumbered 2 to 1 by the parasites who profit off of it, and want to keep the status quo, and they have the backing of a government with a whole lot of firepower to make sure it stays that way. I agree with you though, we declared our independence over less than what we go through today. Maybe it’s time we do it again.
FAIR calculates the cost of illegals is well in excess of $110 billion annually.
For your ping list.
This really isn’t about illegal aliens. Everything associated with illegals has to do with anti-American Liberals. Basically because Mexico as a sovergin power sucks ass and Liberals exploit it.
It's the only energy source that stands ready to deliver electricity on a moments notice after waiting months to be needed. Dams are time machines that let us visit our rainfall and use it before it rushes back out to the sea to become non-potable once again!!!
4.2 billion is 42,000 million!!!!..
Any civilized society has four pillars of functioning institutions. Political, economic, education and last but most certainly not least religious. All four of the pillars of our 'civil' society have been corrupted.
Given the remembrance of that long ago 'Tea Party', we are once again by all these institutions, (the redistribution ruling class from both political parties) getting taxed without representation.
What I would like to see is some conservative use the Mexican Immigration Law as their own campaign document and agree with how Mexico handles immigration. All we are getting from these politicians and their fellow cohorts, is talk, talk, talk, as they fleece us blind and call it compassion.
I’d rather invade Mexico and make it ours.
What? And put every Mexican citizen on the 'used tax credit' program?
