Trump may get tax cut bill with more generous credits for illegal immigrants
The Washington Times ^ | December 10, 2017 | S.A. Miller

President Trump has been willing to accept almost anything to close the deal on his giant tax cut bill before Christmas, including staying mum about a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to pocket the more generous child tax credit included in the package.

Illegal immigrants have been collecting the payoff from the “refundable” tax credit for years because of an IRS interpretation of how the rule was drafted. The Republican-controlled Congress this fall had a chance to correct that in the tax code overhaul that in the Senate version doubled the child tax credit to $2,000 and expanded eligibility.

Good luck in 2018. You are going to need it.

He could give them all amnesty and they would still hate him and vote dem. Don’t give Trump. Put American citizens first like you said you would.

I thought one difference between old and new was that if you didn’t pay anything, you didn’t get this credit.

Nixon signed the original tax law for EIC...,it will NEVER go away. The IRS Code is rife with distribution schemes AND "Special Provisions" for those whose lobbiests bought votes! It will never change in our lifetimes!

Thank you. With all the Puerto Ricans mass migrating to Florida, we will be a blue state in about three weeks. We don’t need to worry about the tax credit.

“Trump needs to fix this pronto.”

If he refuses to sign on, he blows up the Congressional Republican consensus.

He will sign with this provision. And it will doubly screw everyone facing a tax increase.

And kill GOP chances in the 2018 elections. Maybe even his own reelection in 2020.

From the piece...

Under those conditions, illegal immigrant workers with children who benefit from birthright citizenship — a relatively common phenomenon among America’s estimated 12.5 million illegal immigrants — could cash in.

President Trump.

Respectfully...

NO, THANK YOU!

Again, with respect and support.

Congressional Republicans would have stopped Congressional Democrats and Obama from doing this.

But now that they have power they have no compunction doing it themselves.

Just like Obamacare.

Worthless, POS hypocrites.

What people like you don't understand is that it is not possible to be pure. When you are dealing with 535 lawmakers and one president, no one is going to get everything they want. It is not possible.

Reagan had to give in all the time to get bills passed. But he got enough of what he wanted and he was happy.

It is not possible to be pure.

There is tons of good in the bill and I will take the good if there are some things I don't want.

But people like you are never happy about anything. If Trump was a dictator, then I would agree with you, but he is not. Everyone has to get something to get a bill passed. That is how it works. It is not possible to be pure.

“It is not possible to be pure”

However, it is possible to deny the EITC to illegals while at the same time increasing taxes on millions of citizens.

Puerto Ricans are not illegal immigrants. They are American Citizens. That being said, yes, if they vote they usually vote Dem.

Also realize that many homes in South Florida were destroyed during Irma. Where will they eventually wind up?
