GAO: $17.4 Billion Wasted On Illegal Aliens Claiming EITC

By Dave Levine

Daniel Horowitz has an excellent column today at Conservative Review wherein he mentions the billions in waste of Medicaid, Medicare and the EITC–the Earned Income Tax Credit used by illegal aliens to keep from paying income tax.

However, Horowitz fails to mention this fact–that the EITC is used illegally by illegals to avoid paying taxes. Illegals also use the ACTC–the Additional Child Tax Credit–to avoid paying taxes. The more children they have (anchor babies), the more they get to deduct.

Trump could shut down this waste with his signature. So, why hasn’t he done so?
