Did you get your ‘amnesty bonus’? IRS defends Obama’s refunds to illegals

In a shocking interview Monday, a Republican congressman went “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren to expose how the IRS defends giving taxpayer-subsidized refunds to illegal aliens who don’t pay taxes:

Just being an illegal alien who owes the government money is apparently enough to get money back.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen defended the refunds in a letter to Congress last week, writing that because illegal immigrants can now apply for a Social Security number under President Obama’s executive amnesty, they can then turn around and apply for the earned income tax credit – even if they didn’t earn it.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Van Susteren Monday that the refunds are being called “amnesty bonuses.”

“Explain to me how someone who didn’t pay taxes, didn’t file, can be getting what I refer to as free money from the IRS,” Van Susteren said.

Jordan explained they call it the “amnesty bonus” because someone may actually owe taxes but would still be able to get the refund.

The liberal refunds are a direct result from Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty which provides Social Security numbers for as many as 5 million illegal aliens. All of whom could be eligible for the IRS amnesty bonus according to Jordan.

“It’s unfair to taxpayers that noncitizen illegals are gonna get this bonus that […] their tax money’s gonna be used for,” Jordan said.

The whole thing reeks of unfairness, and Jordan also pointed out that the Social Security funds will be at greater risk of depletion for senior citizens who have paid continually into the system.

In addition, amnesty bonuses essentially penalize immigrants who have come to America legally while encouraging more illegal activity.
