Speaker Pelosi and her merry band of sycophants, who currently control the House, just passed a 3 TRILLION dollar liberal wish list spending package which insures 16 BILLION in stimulus checks to Illegal Aliens.
The HEROES ACT, which has no pathway to becoming law, includes a provision that would retroactively send payments to any illegal person who filed a Federal Income tax return for 2018 or 2019 with a tax ID number. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stated the bill has no chance of passage in the Senate and President Trump has publicly declared if it did, he would veto it. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lays out the absurdity of Pelosi’s bill.
ITIN Numbers are issued to an individual by the treasury, as a means of processing one’s return who earns income as a foreign worker in the United States but does not have a social security number as a citizen of the country. This includes foreign students who are approximately 1,095,299 annually in our country.
This ITIN system has been fraught with issues including massive fraud schemes in the past. The Internal Revenue System reported that between, 2011 – 2016, more than 1.3 million cases of identity theft were perpetrated by illegal aliens who had been issued an ITIN number. Additionally, the TIGTA, Inspector General for Tax Administration, reported to the Senate that:
“1.2 million cases in 2017 involved an illegal alien who files a tax return reporting wages that had been earned using a Social Security number that belonged to someone else or was fabricated.”
“Cases of employment identity theft identified by the Internal Revenue Service usually involve an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) filer who used the Social Security Number of another individual, i.e. victim, to gain employment,” TIGTA said in a report released in February.
Listen to Obama appointed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen practically endorse Illegals getting around legitimate tax filings. Or read here.
Those illegals filing federal tax returns overwhelmingly receive refunds larger than taxes paid in a redistribution scheme. Democrats in the Nineties were on par with Republicans regarding border security and addressing illegals flooding our country. President Bill Clinton’s, 1995, State of The Union Speech sounds like President Trump’s Illegal Immigration stance so what changed? If you don’t remember, take a listen:
Rep. Debbie Lasko,(AZ) and. Rep Jim Jordan(Ohio) each summarized this cynical play by Pelosi and her misfits this way:
Before President Trump’s economic revival, Pelosi’s miscreants have spent years focused on keeping our borders wide open, paying for illegal aliens health care, schooling, housing, and food while middle class/blue-collar America has been hollowed out. And remember in June of 2019 at a Democratic primary debate – how many of the candidates supported free healthcare for illegal aliens? Check the feature photo of this article in case you forgot – all of them. Democrats in blue states continue to prioritize sanctuary city policies over the safety of their citizens. Right Wire Report asks the question … Are Democrats trying to buy votes from illegals?
