Illegals Receive Billions in IRS Cash for Kids; Cardinal Mahony Approves
March 6th 2012 · 1 Comment
This story is not exactly news but is a helpful reminder that illegal alien kiddies still get their lawbreaking parents over $4 billion yearly in cash payouts taken from citizen taxpayers. (See House Payroll Tax Proposal Cuts Illegal Alien Windfall, also the CIS report Child Tax Credits for Illegal Immigrants.)
In addition, the video report below is distinguished by the appearance of now-retired Cardinal Roger Mahony (pictured with Ted Kennedy) of Los Angeles speaking in support of freebies for diverse foreign lawbreakers. “We all benefit by this small, relatively small amount of money helping these families, helping them get up and out of poverty. No family is going to pick up from Mexico or Central America and come all the way up here and try to cross the border for this small tax break,” he remarked.
The report followed Mahony’s assertion with a quote in refutation from an Inspector General Report from Treasury.
“The payment of Federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside, and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts Federal law and policy to remove such incentives.”
Of course, they don’t come for just the tax benefit; they come for the whole enchilada of American jobs and free taxpayer-supplied stuff, like healthcare, food, education and subsidized housing.
Mahony has various interests (besides spending other peoples’ money), such as pursuing amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and protecting pedophile priests from the legal system.
