Senate Democrats Vote to Pay Cash Benefits to Illegal Immigrants

Powerline

The Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration has repeatedly warned that illegal immigrants are collecting billion of dollars in refundable tax credits to which they are not legally entitled. This outrageous situation can be corrected rather easily, by requiring tax filers to supply a valid Social Security number in order to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit. Today in the Senate Budget Committee, Jeff Sessions proposed an amendment that would do exactly that, thereby saving American taxpayers billions of dollars that are flowing improperly to illegal aliens.

Incredibly, the ten Democrats on the committee voted in lockstep to keep the illegal money flowing. It is hard to believe, but you can see it for yourself:

It is hard to imagine a motive other than sheer perversity for the Democrats’ votes. If there was any doubt in your mind, this places beyond dispute the fact that Democrats are on the side of illegal immigrants, and are hostile to the interests of American citizens.
