Illegals bring loads of crime to this country. In return we give them free stuff. The new Trump budget proposal would get rid of tax breaks for illegals. Sounds good to me!
Per Daily Caller:
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.
So we're going to stop throwing money at illegals and also save $40 billion? Two birds with one stone. I like it.
It's about time we put a stop to illegals having all the advantages of being a citizen but having zero responsibility.
The United States is definitely on the right track. The next step would be to used this saved income and get the illegals completely out of the country. The IRS could get ICE the funds necessary to get these illegals out of the country.
This is a great first step. President Trump needs to continue to chisel away from the extremely bloated budget. What do you think Trump should target next as far as trimming down the budget?
