GOP Wants to Cut Tax Break for Immigrants

There are 225 comments on the www.politico.com story from Jan 12, 2012, titled GOP Wants to Cut Tax Break for Immigrants. In it, www.politico.com reports that:

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?

-I still haven't seen anyone condemn the criminal arsonist. Hating America should illicit some type of reaction from someone in uniform to say the least. On the other hand, I am glad that you know Hispanics personally. As you can see, not all act in the same manner...extrapolate that to the overall illegal immigrant population and you would see that not all have a criminal mindset.
<sigh> Once more, dipstick, this is a forum on tax breaks for immigrants. <gasp> IF you want to talk about the german guy, start another forum- just read and follow directions. Were you to walk up to people (for example) having a conversation on waterways, and you insist the conversation be about swimming pools, what kind of reaction would you expect? Same as here...

-Ha..."Yep, they give us deseases and arson. Do you need links?"
I respond to what you write buddy-boy...are you refuting that that is your post? Then own it..you brought it up, and has nothing to do with taxes...huh uh, I don't think so.
This is more like the schoolyard bully who talks smack until someone stands up to them. I always despised bullies!
