Most of you are probably aware by now of the story broken by Indianapolis news station WTHR which exposed how illegal aliens are exploiting Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINS) in order to take advantage of the Child Tax Credit, to the tune of billions of dollars each year. As you can see, it has created a firestorm that has reached the halls of Congress. Unfortunately, thanks to Senate Majority Leader Reid, this type of rampant fraud will not be addressed for the foreseeable future. Apparently, the pocketbooks of American taxpayers-just like employment opportunities for American citizens-come second to the political viability of Harry Reid.
To gain some perspective on just how pervasive these scams are, take a look at the revelations of people who worked for the IRS as it processed the fraudulent income tax returns of illegal aliens! Thanks once again to WTHR for this stunning expose. I just wish our ostensible leaders were responsible enough to recognize the consequences of their inaction.
