Among many other watch-dog groups, Californians for Population Stabilization has put out a call fort action to contact your elected voices in Washington D.C. and ask that they, get this…alter existing – and enforced – federal law that tax credits to be given to allows illegal aliens.

Seems a sound idea to us.

CAPS explains to the no-doubt surprised and hopefully outraged reader:

“According to the Treasury Department (REPORT HERE) , $4.2 billion in refundable credits were paid in 2010 to those who filed returns using Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs), a group composed mostly of illegal workers. Only those eligible to work in the U.S. receive Social Security numbers, but the IRS allows illegal aliens to file using ITINs and then receive Child Tax Credits even if they paid no income taxes.

As the Treasury Department inspector general noted, these tax credits are "an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts federal law..." Now is a most appropriate time to eliminate a loophole that robs Americans and encourages illegal immigration.”

Readers who regard this as a common sense, excellent use of five minutes of their time can click HERE to help and to contact their U.S. Senator. For free.

The thing is...The children the illegal aliens are getting the tax credits for have social security numbers. I don't know how that figures into the equation... The children born here, remember, are US citizens and "deserve" the cash. Right? I mean, this is what I never hear discussed. Come to America illegally, have children, and those children are instantly wards of the state. They are citizens without an income thereby qualifying them for all kinds of governmental goodies. THIS is what drives me crazy about illegal immigration. Not that the parents come here to better their lives or to escape a corrupt government, but the fact that as soon as they get here they promptly start having welfare babies!!!
