In 2009, 13 years after the IRS initiated its policy to "legalize illegal aliens," TIGTA released an audit report on refundable tax credits going to ITIN users.

Here the IG detailed how the IRS was providing both the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) to illegal aliens. The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is deducted from the income tax liability someone otherwise owes. The Additional Child Tax Credit is the "refundable" portion of the CTC and is paid to people who owe no taxes at all or whose tax liability is less than the value of the credit.

The IG's 2009 audit report examined six tax years — 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 — to see how much the IRS had paid out in ACTC money to people using ITINs who were "not authorized to work" in the United States.

In 2000, according to the IG, the IRS paid $62 million to 62,000 illegal aliens; in 2001, it paid $161 million to 203,000 illegal aliens; in 2004, it paid $778 million to 626,000 illegal aliens; in 2005, it paid $1.063 billion to 810,000 illegal aliens; in 2006, it paid $1.407 billion to 1,016,000 illegal aliens; and in 2007, it paid $1.777 billion to 1,220,000 illegal aliens.

"While the law also prohibits aliens residing without authorization in the U.S. from receiving most federal public benefits, IRS management's view is that the law does not provide sufficient legal authority for the IRS to disallow the ACTC to ITIN filers.

"Nonetheless, as it now stands," said the IG, "the payment of federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the U.S. without authorization, which contradicts federal law and policy to remove such incentives."

In 2011, the IG released another report on IRS ACTC payments to illegal aliens.

In 2008, this report revealed, the IRS paid $2.14 billion in ACTC money to 1.53 million illegal aliens; in 2009, it paid $2.86 billion to 1.85 million illegal aliens; and in 2010, it paid $4 billion to 2.18 million illegal aliens.

Over all nine years the IG audited, the IRS paid $14.228 billion in ACTC money to illegal aliens.

When it comes to enforcing the immigration law, our government cannot find illegal aliens. When it comes to redistributing wealth to them, the IRS knows exactly where to send the checks.-

I bet the US would be very well off without all these payouts going to the undeserving undesirables. Our national debt would be nothing if our laws were truly enforced, and we kept up with their visas' expiration. Visas should have an invisible monitor implanted.

Let me know when those people you speak of do this, then,we'll talk!

Illegal, but Not Undocumented: Identity Theft, Document Fraud, and Illegal Employment

The findings include:

a.. Illegal immigrants are not "undocumented." They have fraudulent documents such as counterfeit Social Security cards, forged drivers licenses, fake "green cards," and phony birth certificates. Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment.

b.. Most (98 percent) Social Security number (SSN) thieves use their own names with stolen numbers. The federal E-Verify program, now mandated in only 14 states, can detect this fraud. Universal, mandatory use of E-Verify would curb this and stop virtually 100 percent of child identity theft.

c.. Illegal immigration and high levels of identity theft go hand-in-hand. States with the most illegal immigration also have high levels of job-related identity theft. In Arizona, 33 percent or all identity theft is job-related (as opposed to identity theft motivated simply by profit). In Texas it is 27 percent; in New Mexico, 23 percent; in Colorado, 22 percent; California, 20 percent; and in Nevada, 16 percent. Eight of the 10 states
with the highest percentage of illegal aliens in their total population are among the top 10 states in identity theft (Arizona, California, Florida, Texas, Nevada, New York, Georgia, and Colorado).

d.. Children are prime targets. In Arizona, it is estimated that over one million children are victims of identity theft. In Utah, 1,626 companies were found to be paying wages to the SSNs of children on public assistance under the age of 13. These individuals suffer very real and very serious consequences in their lives.

e.. Illegal aliens commit felonies in order to get jobs. Illegal aliens who use fraudulent documents, perjure themselves on I-9 forms, and commit identity theft in order to get jobs are committing serious offenses and are not "law abiding."

f.. Illegally employed aliens send billions of dollars annually to their home countries, rather than spending it in the United States and helping stimulate the American economy. In October 2008 alone,$2.4 billion was transferred to Mexico.

g.. Tolerance of corruption erodes the rule of law. Corruption is a serious problem in most illegal aliens' home countries. Allowing it to flourish here paves the way for additional criminal activity and increased corruption throughout society.

h.. Leaders support perpetrators and ignore victims. Political, civic, religious, business, education, and media leaders blame Americans for "forcing" illegal aliens to commit document fraud and identity theft. No similar concern is expressed for the American men, women, and children whose lives are destroyed in the process.

i.. The Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service facilitate illegal immigrant-driven identity theft. Both turn a blind eye to massive SSN fraud and take no action to stop it. The Social Security Administration assigns SSNs to new-born infants that are being used illegally. The IRS demands that victims pay taxes on wages earned by illegal aliens using their stolen SSNs, while taking no action to stop the identity
theft.
