“It Could Pay to be an Illegal”
The stakes are much higher than first realized for that Texas federal court case challenging the constitutionality of President Obama’s executive order granting 5 million illegal immigrant’s amnesty.
The IRS has determined that under existing law illegals obtaining Obama’s amnesty could immediately cash in upon receipt of their Social Security card. By cashing in I’m referring to their instant qualifying to receive cash back from the Earned Income Tax Credit Program designed to subsidize low-wage employees.
The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that Obama’s executive order amnesty will cost $1.7 billion over 10 years by redistributing cash paid in by taxpayers back to the illegal immigrants.
Essentially we would be rewarding those who’ve been working here illegally for doing so.
So much for the amnesty argument that those who are here illegally would start at the back of the line.
