Illegal Aliens Stand to Gain Legal Presence and Big Fat Checks from the IRS
As if subverting the Constitution to give millions of illegal aliens legal status and work authorization isn’t enough, there’s more. The Obama amnesty is truly the gift that keeps giving…with our money, of course.

The IRS Commissioner John Koskinen gave testimony to a Senate committee that beneficiaries of the Obama amnesty are in line to collect billions of dollars from the Treasury in the form of retroactive Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC).
Illegal aliens who filed returns using Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) will be eligible to amend their returns for the previous three years once they receive valid Social Security numbers (SSNs). ITIN filers do not qualify for the EITC (although they have been able to collect billions of dollars through the Additional Child Tax Credit Program, which is likely the reason they file returns). The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens earn low wages which will render them eligible for the EITC when they file using a SSN.
BTW, there are horror stories galore about illegal aliens collecting money on children who do not live in the USA. It seems that many of them collect on children who are not their children, but nieces and nephews who live in Mexico.
