200+ Groups Say GOP Tax Plans Hurt Immigrant Children: Advocates Urge Lawmakers to Reject “anti-child and anti-immigrant proposals”

More than 200 organizations Wednesday sent Members of Congress a joint letter opposing tax legislation advanced by Republican leadership of the United States Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. The letter, led by the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) and the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), focuses on provisions that will drive up child poverty by denying tax benefits to immigrant children. It was signed by dozens of other local, state, and national organizations, ranging from the National Association of Social Workers and the National Education Association to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and UnidosUS.

“This letter sends a clear message to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle: attacks on immigrant families face fierce opposition from national and local leaders all over America,” said Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.

The letter focuses on provisions of the House and Senate tax bills that would deny the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and its refundable portion to children who lack a Social Security Number (SSN). Both bills directly target approximately 1 million DREAMer children and their families, threatening to drive them into poverty. Targeting any children in a family will harm the family as a whole – and over 5 million children live in mixed-status households. The House proposal includes similar provisions restricting eligibility for the American Opportunity Tax Credit, which helps students access postsecondary education.

Good grief. We shouldn’t be giving tax breaks and money back to people who are unlawfully present in the United States in the first place. We did not ask them to come here. We did not give them permission to come here. If they do not like the notion that they do not get various tax credits, tough. Leave.

The U.S. tax code should not be providing support for anyone who is illegally present in the U.S.

    Do ALL small children in the US have SS numbers? It sounds like a bill to force families to register their children with the federal government. “Register kids, not guns!”

      Try and keep up, little guy.
      Learn something and stop being a total idiot.

      The Tax Reform Act of 1986 required parents to list Social Security numbers for each dependent over the age of 5 for whom the parent wanted to claim a tax deduction.[9] Before this act, parents claiming tax deductions were simply trusted not to lie about the number of children they supported.

      Today, an SSN is required regardless of the child’s age to receive an exemption. Since then, parents have often applied for Social Security numbers for their children soon after birth; today, it can be done on the application for a birth certificate.

      Actually, that’s exactly what happens. The government ‘encourages’ you to apply for your child’s Social Security number when the birth certificate is filled out, and you cannot claim a child as a dependent without a Social Security number for him.

  2. Jeffery says:

    The GOP tax bill is intended to comfort the comfortable further shifting burdens onto the poor and working classes. GOPers are looking for ways to help pay for their tax breaks for the wealthy – so cutting child tax credits, kicking people off gov’t subsidized healthcare, cutting Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP… SS is next. Keep payroll taxes as they are and cut the services they support. It’s a lose-lose for the working classes, but a win-win for the GOP constituency – the wealthy.

    The article stated:

    The letter focuses on provisions of the House and Senate tax bills that would deny the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and its refundable portion to children who lack a Social Security Number (SSN).

    This is just propaganda: you cannot claim any child for whom there is no Social Security number on your taxes in the first place. That is already the law, and has been for a couple decades.

    Of course, illegal immigrants do not have legitimate Social Security numbers in the first place, so they can’t file income taxes. This means that, if they have been working for a company which withholds taxes, using a fraudulent SS#, they cannot get any tax refunds to which they might otherwise be entitled were they legal residents. This is a good thing!

    Not as good as kicking their asses out, but better than nothing.
