Senate Budget Committee Dems All Vote To Give Tax Credits To Illegals

Things that are Vastly Important To Democrats

(Breitbart) Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee unanimously voted against preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining tax credits Thursday during the mark up of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget.

During the committee mark up, Sen. Jeff Sessions offered an amendment to require a valid Social Security number in order to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit.

“These benefits represent a direct cash infusion from American taxpayers to low-income illegal immigrants, a dramatic transfer of wealth during a time of low wages and high federal debt. Sessions’ amendment would simply require tax filers to provide a valid Social Security number to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit,” Sessions’ office explained.

Reporting from the Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) reveals that illegal immigrants have collected billions in tax credits, a benefit they are not supposed to be able to access.

Requiring a Social Security number would serve to prevent such filers from being able to claim the benefit.

Every single one of the Democrats voted against the amendment. Fortunately, Republicans voted in favor of restricting those who are in this country illegally from sharing in the bounty of taxpayer earnings. For Democrats, they have no problem spending The People’s Money to curry political favor with illegal aliens, in a hope that if they can find a way to vote, they will vote Democrat.

(IJReview) Over 30,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records were released last year, according to the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This was in addition to the 36,000 that were released in 2013.

According to ICE, a court decision ensures that any immigrant whose home country will not allow them to return cannot be held by the United States indefinitely. After a period of time, the immigrants must be released.

Here’s a good point

Meanwhile

(CNS News) According to weekly detention and departure reports from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there were 167,527 non-detained convicted criminal aliens in the United States as of Jan. 26 of this year, a congressional hearing revealed Thursday.

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah.) read the statistic aloud Thursday during a hearing examining ICE’s priorities and procedures for removing criminal aliens currently living in the United States. (snip)

“These are people that are here illegally, get caught, convicted, and you release back out into the public,” he said, adding that some of the crimes committed by those who have been released include homicide, sex crimes, child pornography, drunk driving, robbery and kidnapping.

Makes you feel super confident in your Central Government, eh?

    Another reason the nation needs a comprehensive immigration policy.

    Do you think the citizen children of illegal immigrants have a right to the credit?

    In terms of budget, illegal immigrants pay more into Social Security (without being able to access benefits) than the child tax credit payout.

    Another reason the nation needs a comprehensive immigration policy.

    Raw hatred of Mexicans is not an immigration policy.

  2. Nighthawk says:

    Do you really have to paint everything with the racism brush?

    Raw hatred of Mexicans? It’s not raw hatred of anyone. It’s the fact that we allow criminals into this country and then try and give them what the legal citizens have worked hard to earn.

    If you have no problem with giving criminals free stuff, then fine, you can pay my share as I am tired of doing it.

    Same old liberal game-when you can’t debate with facts, accuse your opponent of racism. But we’ll try it J’s way: Jeffery, why do you hate lower-paid African Americans who lose jobs to illegal immigrants?

    When one gets his talking points from ThinkProgress, MediaMatters, MoveOn, the Obama administration…etc., then he is quite easy to ignore because none of his comments exhibit any rational thought.
    The left never has any original points, only drivel and emotion, repeated over and over again.
    But you guys knew that already, right?

    “Do you think the citizen children of illegal immigrants have a right to the credit?” NO they don’t
