IN 2005 1 billion in refunds, illegals caught on to the loophole IN 2010!! “Undocumented workers claiming credit for children who have never lived here is fraud, pure and simple,” Congressman Huelskamp said. “And, too many in Washington have looked the other way for too long. Washington is making a bad problem worse by allowing illegal immigrants to exploit American taxpayers to their advantage. $1 billion in credits in 2005 was enough for sure, but $4.2 billion in 2010? That is completely unacceptable. I am glad we were able to advance from the House Budget Committee a measure to close this loophole, I am pleased that the House passed it, and I look forward to the Senate’s consideration and ultimate passage of this reconciliation package.”

Don't they work for us?
WTHR, the NBC affiliate in Indianapolis, recently reported about how millions of illegal aliens are getting billions of dollars in U.S. tax refunds without having paid a dime in income taxes.
