Trump calls to cut off tax breaks for illegal immigrants

By Stephen Frank

Why do criminals here in this country illegally get the benefit of tax breaks? Why do the honest folks have to pay $4 billion or more each year in taxes, so criminals from foreign countries get a check from Washington? Instead, Homeland Security should track down the bank accounts and assets, including cars, owned by illegal aliens and either freeze the accounts and take the property or at least freeze the accounts and arrest the employers of the illegal aliens.

“Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget, set to be released Tuesday, will set higher eligibility standards for the earned income tax credit and the child tax credit, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Monday. According to the administration, the measures will save $40 billion over 10 years.

“How do I go to somebody who pays their taxes, and say, ‘Look, I want you to give this earned income tax credit to somebody who’s working here illegally’? That’s not defensible,” Mulvaney told reporters. “And it’s a reasonable accommodation to simply ask them for Social Security numbers.”

The earned income tax credit is a refundable tax credit, which means that if a recipient has no income tax liability, the government sends the person a check. Part of the child tax credit is also refundable.”

The better news is that by taking the tax refunds, they are stealing from the public and government—that is a crime. Each one of these embezzlers should be detained and deported—not only have they come here illegally, they are stealing money as if they were robbing a bank. Steal and be deported.
