Biden’s spending bill lowers key child tax credit requirement that could pay out billions to illegal immigrants

NEW ONESYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

President Biden’s huge spending bill of $1.75 trillion would drop a part of the child tax credit program that could lead to billions in payouts to illegal immigrants.

Tucked away on page 1.647 of the Build Back Better Act, the Democrats’ social spending package, is a provision that would repeal the Social Security number requirement for obtaining child tax credits. This change would extend child tax credits to parents of illegal immigrants who do not have a social security number.

Steven Camarota, a researcher with the Center for Immigration Studies, estimated that abolishing the requirement could result in up to $2.3 billion in additional child tax credit payouts to illegal immigrants.

“Illegal immigrants can receive benefits on behalf of their US-born children,” Camarota told Fox News. “But the permanent abolition of the SSN requirement means that even illegal immigrants whose children are also illegally in the country can receive cash payments, including the approximately 600,000 unaccompanied minors and individuals in family units detained at the border in FY2021 and have been released.”

Camarota also estimates an $8.2 billion payout from the expanded child tax credits to illegal immigrants with US-born children.

“In addition to removing the Social Security number requirement, receiving payments for illegal immigrants is made all the easier because reconciliation also eliminates the work requirement for next year,” Camarota said. “In the past, some illegal immigrants who worked off the books sometimes had trouble proving income from work, but now that won’t be a problem.”

In 2021, the American Rescue Plan increased the maximum tax credits for children from $2,000 to $3,600 per child under 6 and from $2,000 to $3,000 for children ages 6 to 17. The new proposal would extend these figures until 2022.

Working families currently get full credit if they earn up to $150,000 for a couple or $112,500 for a single-parent family. Families who didn’t earn enough to file taxes also qualify for the credits.

BIDEN Spending STATEMENT WOULD CONNECT HIS MEDIUM PROMISE, ANALYSIS SAYS

The new legislation would eliminate the labor requirement, which has created friction between Senator Joe Manchin and other Democrats.

“I believe the government should be your best partner, but it shouldn’t be your supplier,” the West Virginia Democrat said of the requirement. “We have a moral obligation to care for people with disabilities, such as physically or mentally. But everyone else should be able to help and step in, so that’s my way of thinking.”

The child tax credit extensions have nothing to do with the Biden administration’s idea of ​​paying out illegal immigrant families segregated at the border.
