$4.2 Billion was paid to illegal aliens in 2011

... according to the Inspector General of the U.S. Treasury Department.

A report was issued by them on that subject.  It is dated July 7, 2011 (a year and a half ago).  Here is the link to the report.

The money was paid through the use of tax credits.  The following paragraphs were copied from the first page of report:
Many individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States, and thus not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN) for employment, earn income in the United States.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides such individuals with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to facilitate their filing of tax returns.
Although the law prohibits aliens residing without authorization in the United States from receiving most Federal public benefits, an increasing number of these individuals are filing tax returns claiming the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), a refundable tax credit intended for working families.
The payment of Federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside, and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts Federal law and policy to remove such incentives.

If the U.S. Congress was serious about reducing our spending, they could start by preventing any illegal alien from receiving any of our scarce financial resources.

Even if Obama said that he would veto this legislation, Congress can and should override his veto.

Any political capital that he thinks he has as a result of his narrow election victory is now gone.  He spent it trying to have his way on the fiscal cliff issue.


This issue is easy to understand.  Barak Obama is politically a Marxist and economically, a communist.  His wife Michelle didn't love America until 2008.

This man was appointed by President Obama to be at the head of his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.  Listen to him praise communism in his own words.


What makes you think that our President, his wife, or any one of his top advisers would work very hard to keep this nation strong in any sense of the word, including our economic health and our military security?
