    A Mix of Migration and Money: Child Tax Credits and EB-5 Matters

    A Mix of Migration and Money: Child Tax Credits and EB-5 Matters

    December 4, 2017



    There have been a number of recent developments in the arenas where money and migration mix.

    Good News.
    One of the most egregious yet obscure of the Obama era moves was the decision, taken deep down within IRS, to, in effect, pay illegal aliens to stay in this country, with larger payments being made to families with more illegals than those with fewer of them.

    These payments encourage illegals to stay in the country and multiply, or at least to pretend to multiply. We are talking about additional child tax credits (ACTCs) of as much as $1,000 for each child, something implemented in the 1040 process. There are strong indications that some illegals file for more children than exist, for children still outside the United States, for genuine but illegal alien kids, or for some of each.

    Since the key part of the decision in favor of these payments was an agency one, the Trump administration could have saved billions had its people in Treasury reversed the policy this past winter.

    They did not do so, but it looks like Congress may fix the problem.

    According to Polizette, the tax cut bill, as passed by the House, contains a provision that would mandate that dependents claimed under the ACTC must have Social Security numbers, which are issued only to those with claims to legal status in the United States. Under the current system, people with Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs), which can be obtained by illegals, can get these benefits.

    Rep. Luke Messed (R-Ind.) succeeded in getting this into the House bill. Whether a similar provision is in the Senate bill is not clear at the moment. My preference would have been to put the provision in some other legislation, rather than the highly controversial tax-cut bill, but that the language has been adopted by the House is obviously a good sign.

    EB-5 Extension.
    The main part of the EB-5 program the granting of a family-sized batch of green cards to aliens making $500,000 in Homeland Security-approved, but not guaranteed, investments is scheduled yet again to sunset on December 8. Everything I hear on the Hill indicates that there will be another brief extension of the program, presumably carried in a continuing resolution to fund the government.

    Quiet negotiations continue between the reformers and the real estate industry on re-shaping the program, but time has run out for anything except the routine short-term, clean extension. ("Clean", in this case meaning an extension of this dirty little program without any changes.)

    Meanwhile, America's judges (and the rest of us) continue to be burdened with litigation on specific cases, such as the two described below. To make an obvious point: There would be none of these cases if EB-5 did not exist or if it were tightly administered, which it is not.

    EB-5 Civil Case.
    Thirty-two Chinese investors, saying that they put $560,000 each into EB-5 investments in a failed electric car company, have sued Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe (D), and Hillary Clinton's brother, Anthony Rodham, for damages because of the collapse of GreenTech Automotive. (The extra $60,000 in these cases was EB-5 related fees.)

    The governor, who was president of the firm, left it five years ago to run for state-wide office and the problem has been in and out of the courts and the press ever since. Rodham was in charge of the related EB-5 regional center.

    EB-5 Criminal Case.
    A much larger EB-5 case ($50 million) has been closed in California, with a guilty plea from the principal, lawyer Victoria Chan. According to a U.S. Department of Justice press release, she pleaded guilty to federal fraud and money laundering charges, all related to the massive misuse of EB-5 funds.

    This is just one of the many EB-5 fraud cases we have been writing about in recent years, including other large, or larger cases in the Washington State, Chicago, South Dakota, and Vermont. There were also many other EB-5 fraud cases in California.

    Will ss# be verified? Who determined to double the child tax credit to illegals with anchor babies?
    Why should charitable orgs lose so many future contributions due to limited tax write offs by contributors, yet illegals can now get double tax credit?

    From a 2016 post - just one year almost 6 billion paid to illegals - Why wonder where money for a wall should come from? Look at what we are throwing away and encouraging births by illegals instead of getting rid of them.
    According to the Treasury Department Inspector General, the Internal Revenue Service paid out at least $5.9 billion in improper ACTC payments in Fiscal Year 2013, or about 25 to 30 percent of the total payments.(Politico, Dec. 9, 2014) An overwhelming amount of the fraudulent payments go to illegal aliens.

    More like a bubbling cauldron of a mix of corrupt politicians, a bucket full of illegal migration...add a gallon of diseases, and a pound of anchor babies and the total collapse of the United States of America by these disease infected breeding parasites for the FEW who want to keep their cushy jobs, their vacations, NO work days when they are in office, and their free healthcare, write-offs and pensions! Not to mention their sexual harassment off the back of taxpayers, their lies and cover ups and the waste, fraud and abuse of OUR money!

    While they import cheap labor WE pay for and ship our jobs overseas!

    ALL THE WHILE...LOWERING YOUR WAGES, TAKING YOUR JOBS...DESTROYING OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND TAKING YOUR DREAMS AND YOUR CHILDRENS DREAMS AWAY. AND YOU LET IT HAPPEN!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE AND VOTE THEM OUT...YOU HAVE BEEN "HAD"...YOU ARE BEING HAD AND YOU WILL SUFFER IF YOU DO NOT VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE!
