Biden’s Plan to Give Illegals Billions of Dollars Found Hidden in Spending Bill
Illegal immigrants could claim child tax credits without any social security number
The Demcorats are good at hiding things they know people will oppose, and this is just what they have done in the 2,135-page document of their new spending bill.
Tucked away on page 1647 of the new legislation, there is a provision that definitely will not benefit the American people.
The provision would end the requirement of a Social Security number to obtain child tax credits.
The removal of Social Security ID means billions of dollars could be doled out to anyone.
Under this new provision, illegal immigrants could claim child tax credits without any social security number.
The current law regarding child tax credits stipulates:
“No credit shall be allowed under this section to a taxpayer with respect to any qualifying child unless the taxpayer includes the name and taxpayer identification number of such qualifying child."
Researcher with the Center for Immigration Studies, Steven Camarot, said that repealing this requirement could lead to an additional $2.3 billion in payouts to illegal immigrants, as per Fox News.
Camarota also estimated a massive payout for all the illegal immigrants who have U.S.-born children.
“[W]e estimated that illegal immigrants would receive $8.2 billion in cash payments from the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC), which is part of a budget reconciliation bill, also referred to as the Build Back Better (BBB) Act,” Camarota wrote for CIS.
The spike in payouts is the result of the new program increasing the child tax credit maximum payment.
“The new program significantly increases the maximum cash payment, which is referred to as a ‘refundable credit,’ from $1,400 per child under the old ACTC to $3,600 for children under six, and $3,000 for children six to 17. The new CTC is only extended for one year in the BBB, after which the maximum for all children would be $2,000,” Camarota wrote.
But even if CTC payout decreases, they will still be higher if the requirement if Social Security numbers are eliminated.
“The elimination of the SSN requirement also allows the more than 600,000 illegal immigrants encountered at the border in family units or as unaccompanied minors and released in FY 2021 to receive cash payments from the new CTC,” Camarota wrote.
This payout should not be confused with Biden’s previous idea to pay hundreds of thousands to families that were separated at the border.
All arguments about immigration aside, the financial aspect of this spending is catastrophic.
Biden’s whole bill is already $1.75 trillion.
“CBO estimates that enacting this title would result in a net increase in the deficit totaling $150.7 billion over the 2022-2031 period," he CBO announced Monday.
The increase in the deficit would result from an increase in direct spending of $151.5 billion.
But Democrats are still eager to pass this spending bill this week.
“Yes, we intend — that is our plan to pass the bill the week of Nov. 15, as is indicated in our statements that were made at the time of passing the infrastructure bill, and we’re very proud of that,” Nancy Pelosi told reporters as per New York Post.
