While many conservative organizations seeking tax exempt status were singled out for extra scrutiny by the IRS, a commensurate level of calculated disinterest was demonstrated with regard to illegal aliens. A bombshell report, “Paying Illegals to Stay” written by Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) fellow David North reveals that the Treasury has paid out a whopping $4.2 billion to the families of illegal aliens.
“This particular paying-the-illegals-to-stay pattern revolves around the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), which is not so much a tax credit as it is an income-transfer program for low-income families, offering up to $1,000 per child to all resident families, including those of illegal aliens,” North explains.
Unsurprisingly, the evolution of the abuse came about courtesy of what North refers to as a “fuzzy minded” Congress, which could have mandated that ACTC benefits, like Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC), could only be granted to people with valid Social Security Numbers (SSNs).
