Illegal Workers Used Tax Credit to Pocket $4.2 Billion, Audit Shows
Fox News ^ | Sept. 2, 2011

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.

Not to worry. A few years from now when socialistic ObamaCare really kicks in there won’t be ANY forms that ask such “profiling” questions about being able to pay. Of course, most hospitals will have closed and most surgeons and emergency care physicians will be in other specialties or even professions.

The Tea thrown overboard was a statement that they were finished with the king. The tax wasn't really the big issue there were far more important issues they were fighting over.

remember they were British citizens god fearing Christians they wouldn't have killed British soldiers over money.

examples much bigger issues were forced slavery on British ships picked at random off the streets. executing and whipping ministers for practicing their religion. forced to feed and bed British soldiers in their own homes whom were often very unpleasant at best.

I hate illegal aliens. Don’t give me that same old BS that they just want to work. They want to get every illegal dollar and every free service they can lie, cheat or steal to get. Which means everything they extract from this country and the American taxpayers. Their very existence here is an illegal enterprise, aided and abetted by our feckless politicians and a clueless citizenry.
