A big loophole in the House Bill fortunately caused problems today with the proposed Bush tax rebates. The loophole in the House bill would allow most illegal immigrants to receive a tax rebate check.
If the illegal immigrants work and have a tax payer identification number, they are technically considered “resident aliens”, even if they don’t have a social security number or used a fake social security number to get a job. Therefore, they are eligible to receive the tax rebate check under the current legislation even though they aren’t an American citizen.
Nevada Senator John Ensign (R) said, “I’m not sure that the American taxpayer would like people who are in this country illegally to be getting a tax rebate.”
Really Senator Ensign? At least you have a clue! Supposedly, tomorrow they are going to start working on fixing both the Senate and House Bills to correct this loophole and not allow tax rebates for illegal aliens. At this point in the fight against illegal immigration … who knows what will happen.
