GOP Wants to Cut Tax Break for Immigrants

Jan 12, 2012 Full story: www.politico.com 225

Politico reports that Congressional Republicans are hoping to find billions in savings by cutting off child tax credit refunds for working immigrant parents who lack a Social Security number. The child credit is currently available to all immigrants who pay taxes. GOP Rep. Sam Johnson has led the charge, claiming that

“Last year, illegal immigrants bilked $4.2 billion from U.S. taxpayers due to a loophole with the refundable child tax credit.”

Democratic Rep. Xavier Becerra defended undocumented immigrants who receive the tax credit:

These are folks who aren’t on welfare. These are folks who are working. The child tax credit is premised on the notion that if you pay income taxes and you have kids, you qualify for a credit.

Weigh in: Should tax-paying immigrants receive child credit? Full Story

You've got it backwards, Tony.
This affects "immigrant parents who lack a Social Security number." That means they are NOT PAYING TAXES. Yet they are working, taking money from some unemployed American who would pay taxes. This proposal will stop them from taking additional money from tax payers.

Apparently you disagree. So, explain to us how denying tax credits to tax cheats will destroy the economy.

These people do pay taxes. They ARE paying taxes so do not assume they are not paying taxes.
Then also stop big corporations from bilking tax payers out of billions with the tax expenditures, loopholes, subsidies and etc.
GE and others pay not taxes but receive billions in returns.

Your idol Soros owns much stock in GE.

Most illegals are paid in cash, no taxes, those who pay them list it as other expenses. But thanks, We're all refreshed and challenged by your far left propaganda.

Retired GE CEO Jack Welch backs Romney so he can assure GE they will not have to pay any taxes. Romney being the big corporate, elite rich, and wall street representative for president.
You are super stupid if you do not think illegals do not pay taxes(probably more than you) even the ones that work for cash pay taxes unlike GE and many other big corporations that pay no taxes.
Thanks for showing your stupidity.

American companies love illegals so they can take advantage of them for cheap labor for large company profits. Illegals are here to stay because the companies that hire them also bribe, own, and run the US government and this country.

Soros is nobama's biggest contributor. So if they don't pay taxes, it's the democrats fault. You should use you head. There is a first time for everything.

I just want to add that the reason we are in Uganda is because Soros has an interest in the oil over there.

Did not say Welch called himself a republican only that he is backing Romney so GE can continue to avoid paying taxes. Romney represents the elite rich, big corporations, and wall street.
