Sen. David Vitter - End Handouts for Illegal Aliens
"The federal government is handing out $4.2 billion a year to illegal aliens. This isn't some service benefit that illegal aliens are receiving, like taxpayer-subsidized health care or education. And it's not a tax deduction or a non-refundable tax credit, which would require recipients to actually pay taxes in order to receive the benefit. It's a refundable tax credit, a taxpayer-funded check from the federal government. And the government requires no proof that the recipient is actually eligible under the law, which illegals are not," Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) writes.
"Abuse of this tax benefit is one of the most ridiculous examples of fraud adding to our federal deficit today. Equally harmful, it is acting as a powerful incentive for more illegal aliens to come to America."
