RACISIM AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
Written by Rita Bonilla Thursday, 03 June 2010 15:02
One of the 'founders' of the Reconquista (reconquer) Movement some years back said:
"We call things RACISM just to get attention. We reduce
complicated problems to RACISM, not because IT IS RACISM, but because it works."
Alfredo Gutierrez, political consultant, as quoted by Richard de
Uriarte, The Phoenix Gazette, March 14, 1992 (quoted in The ProEnglish Advocate, 1st Quarter, 2002).

Let me review your stupidity.
1. Regardless of what positions actual citizens hold in the workforce, it has nothing to do with the illegal trash and the marginal contribution that they make to this country.
2. I would name them, but you would only reply that they are not eligible, discounting that these individuals have for decades scammed the system with fraudulent documentation. But yeah they are such honorable people.
3. No not miserable. Just sick and tired of the illegal population in this country destroying our cities, disregarding our laws, and thumbing their noses at the country.
4. Never stated that I was patriotic. But then this is just more La Raza talking points that they teach to attempt to divert the subject. The reality is that they are losers.
The rest I just have to laugh at, just as I have been laughing at you.
Excuse me I know that your comment was being stated to me but I have a couple of comments to it.

"No not miserable. Just sick and tired of the illegal population in this country destroying our cities, disregarding our laws, and thumbing their noses at the country."

If you are sick of all the illegals in our Country then let's get the immigration reform that will help to legalize some and get rid of the rest along with keeping them out.

"Never stated that I was patriotic. But then this is just more La Raza talking points that they teach to attempt to divert the subject. The reality is that they are losers."

You are wrong I've been posting on Topix now for over 6yrs and those that don't want any reform and really want all immigrants from the third world countries gone all call themselves patriots. That is how they try to legitimize their views.

It's really not true that the younger generation is lazy. I've seen with my own eyes that once ICE raided fast food restaurants that were employing illegals, teenagers stepped right in and filled those jobs.
That is an inside job and I'm sure that the younger generation can handle them. But that being said you won't see those same people staying in a job where they have to do hard work that is out in the elements.
I believe that when a chicken factory was raided the company had to import people from an American territory they couldn't get Americans here to do the jobs.

Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits
Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM
By James Walsh
On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits."
No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.
******It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.******
The Treasury report found that "One common type of
fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement
(Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."
Read more on Newsmax.com : Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits
Sweetie if they changed the W2 then that's tax fraud and those people that do that should go to jail and then get deported. But if they have the company withhold extra money then they should get that money back as they paid in to much.
Using an ITIN number isn't fraudulent nor is it wrong that they get a refund for money they should get back. They worked for that money and that isn't theft no matter how hard you would like everyone to think it is.

Legalizing those who blatantly ignored our laws is not the answer. It is just as wrong to reward those who break the law.

"ALL" ... well that's pretty general. Since I did not call myself a patriot that's pretty much blows a hole in your all theory ... or your racist bias ... take your pick.

Illegal Workers Used Tax Credit to Pocket $4.2 Billion, Audit Shows

(FOX News)- Undocumented workers in the US collected $4.2 billion in a certain tax credit last year, up from less than $1 billion five years ago, according to a new audit by the Treasury Department's Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed Friday.

The report looked only at a tax benefit known as the Additional Child Tax Credit, a refundable credit meant for working families. The audit found that as a result of vague US law -- as well as an expansion of the tax credit in stimulus legislation and other measures -- the number of illegal workers collecting the money has skyrocketed.

The inspector general's office expressed concern about the trend and urged the IRS and Treasury Department to determine once and for all whether that money should be paid out.

"The payment of federal funds through 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," the report said.

Pocohantas_OjosGrande you can't admit that illegal aliens are thieves!

Loophole!

Yesterday, Members of the House Ways & Means Committee voted 22-12 to stop
the IRS from giving refundable tax credits to illegal aliens.

Last year, the Inspector General for the U.S. Treasury Department released a
report revealing that illegal aliens annually receive $4.2 billion in
refundable tax credits, primarily through the Additional Child Tax Credit
(ACTC).

The Ways and Means Committee voted to close this tax credit loophole by
requiring that individuals who claim the ACTC provide a valid Social
Security Number (SSN), based on language introduced by Rep. Sam Johnson
(R-TX). Currently, the IRS only requires applicants for the ACTC to provide
an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), which the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) indiscriminately hands out to illegal aliens.

The legislation was part of a budget reconciliation proposal that now goes
to the House Budget Committee for inclusion in a larger package aimed at
saving tax-payer dollars.

FAIR thanks the following Ways and Means Committee Members who voted to
close the loophole:

Chairman David Camp (R-MI) Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA)
Rep. Wally Herger (R-CA) Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)
Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL)
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE)
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL)
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS)
Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH) Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY) Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX)
Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA) Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND)
Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) Rep. Diane Black (R-TN)
Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY)

******Members who voted against closing the loophole include:******


Rep. Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) Rep. Mike Thompson,(D-CA)
Rep. Fortney Pete Stark,(D-CA) Rep. John B. Larson,(D-CT)
Rep. Jim McDermott,(D-WA) Rep. Ron Kind,(D-WI)
Rep. John Lewis,(D-GA) Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr.,(D-NJ)
Rep. Richard E. Neal,(D-MA) Rep. Shelley Berkley,(D-NV)

Hey.. How about the Cherokee Indians in America band together with our Ancestors from South America and make Y'ALL walk the trail of tears? Whatever.. HUMANITY.. is applicable to all humans.. LIBERTY to be sought out is too.. how dare you play God! Obviously if you could control anything people from South America wouldn't be here.. but .. they are.. which shows you you have no control of power.. Sometimes it's better to yield than to struggle..

Mexico & The Scalp Industry

Between 1835 and the 1880s, the Mexican authorities paid private armies to
hunt Native Americans, paying per kill and using scalps as receipts. The
practice began when the Mexican government could no longer provide adequate
protection to its citizens from the marauding Apaches and Comanches.
