YES! Proposed Trump Budget Would Eliminate Tax Breaks for Illegals...
Illegals bring a tidal wave of murder and rape-age. Our response has been to give free stuff. Then marvel why more illegals keep salsa-ing across the border. Well, if Trump's new budget proposal goes through, illegal hombres can kiss those tax breaks goodbye.
President Donald Trump’s budget proposal for 2018 prevents illegal immigrants from claiming two major tax credits for low and middle income people, according to White House documents released Tuesday morning.
The $4.1 trillion budget would restrict eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit to taxpayers “who are authorized to work in the U.S.,” MarketWatch reported.
The changes are part of a larger restructuring of programs for poor Americans, which the administration wants to overhaul in order to balance the budget in 10 years without changing Social Security or Medicare. The White House estimates tightening eligibility rules for the two tax credits will save about $40 billion over a decade.
Forty billion bucks, eh? That's quite a bit of dinero...
All the perks of citizenship, with none of the responsibilities. Over.
That many pesos would buy us quite a supply of wall-building materials. Which would lead to less illegal immigration. Which would lead to less crime. Which would cut down on prison and deportation expenses. Isn't saving money fun? Related: YES: President Trump INCREASES Deportations of Once Protected DREAMers.
Now, this is but a first step. In an ideal world, we'd use the tax credit claimed to find these illegal hombres and blast them "out of the shadows." The IRS and ICE could partner up to deport the illegal cheats out of the country they're mooching from. Yes, MOOCHING. They're not supposed to be here. Cry me all the rivers you'd like. I don't care if some illegals make a scrumptious churro. If they're here illegally, they deserve a swift kick in the pantaloons. Plus, sugary carbs make me fat.
The second step is cutting even more from the already bloated budget. But baby steps.
