    Steve King and 11 Congressmen Call to Cut Illegal Alien Employer Tax Benefits

    by MICHELLE MOONS
    7 Nov 2017

    Rep. Steve King and 11 of his House colleagues are calling on the Ways and Means Committee to include King’s “New IDEA (Illegal Deduction Elimination Act)” in the Republican tax reform plan for an estimated $254 billion increase in tax revenue over the next decade.

    On Monday, King sent a letter to House Ways and Means chairman Kevin Brady petitioning him to include HR 176, the New IDEA Act, in HR 1, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act. King and eleven of his fellow members of Congress signed the letter.

    “The New IDEA Act amends the Internal Revenue Code to make it unlawful for employers to deduct wages and benefits paid to and on behalf of an illegal alien,” reads a portion of the letter. “It would also make permanent the E-Verify program for verifying the employment eligibility of alien workers.”

    King’s letter calls inclusion of HR 176 in the tax reform plan “the right action for the American taxpayer.” He also includes an estimate from the Center for Immigration Studies that this would “increase federal tax revenues by approximately $25.4 billion per year” for a total of $254 billion over ten years. He writes that the figure will pay for “any increase in the deficit over the limit set by reconciliation.”

    King argued that inclusion of this “commonsense” legislation would help sell the bill on the merit that it relieves some of America’s fiscal challenges.

    Co-signers of King’s letter are Reps. Louie Gohmert (TX), Paul Gosar (AZ), Mo Brooks (AL), Matt Gaetz (FL), Andy Biggs (AZ), Randy Weber (TX), Lou Barletta (PA), Scott DesJarlais (TN), Duncan Hunter (CA), and Brian Babin (TX).

    King originally released the bill in February 2015, describing the driver behind the Act. If wages and benefits paid to illegal alien workers are not deductible by the employer, the incentive to hire cheap labor is diminished. The congressman provided an example of how this plays out — if an employer is paying an illegal alien worker $10 an hour but then cannot deduct that cost from his or her federal taxes, the worker would cost around $16 an hour.

    GOP leadership has seemed apprehensive to pass legislation tough on certain areas of illegal immigration. In late October, Senate Republican leadership working on legislation addressing DACA illegal aliens have “all but ruled out including a mandatory workplace verification system known as E-Verify in a final DACA agreement,” lawmakers involved in the talks tell Politico. Mandatory E-Verify is among the Trump administration’s immigration priorities.

    Rep. King Introduces “New IDEA” Legislation To End Illegal-Hire Loopholes, Increase A

    Rep. King Introduces “New IDEA” Legislation To End Illegal-Hire Loopholes, Increase American Jobs, AND Save Over 25 Billion In Yearly Taxes

    On Monday, Congressman Steve King (R-IA) announced that he was pushing Chairman Kevin Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee to feature King’s “New IDEA” legislation as a commonsense component of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

    Rep. King’s New IDEA (Illegal Deduction Elimination Act) is an amendment to a preexisting failure within the Internal Revenue Code that allows employers to “deduct wages and benefits paid to and on behalf of an illegal alien”, according to a press release from King’s House website.

    King’s New IDEA legislation would also make the federal “E-Verify Program”, an Internet-based database that confirms eligibility for employment against citizenship and Homeland Security and Social Security information, permanent. This is a necessity to cut down on illegal labor in the U.S. which has skyrocketed in recent years, and beyond that, it ensures legal labor will rise as a byproduct. King, along with 11 of his colleagues, made the request in a letter sent to Chairman Brady on Monday.

    The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimated that by eliminating the “deductibility for unlawful employment”, federal tax revenues would jump by around $25.4 billion per year or $254 billion over a 10 year period.

    Gateway Pundit spoke with John Kennedy, Rep. King’s Communications Director and Senior Policy Advisor, who commented:

    “New IDEA is a piece of legislation that Congressman King has consistently introduced to finally close this loophole permitting illegal employement as a deductable. I believe he first introduced the bill in 2005, and he has introduced it in every subsequent Congress since.”

    Despite repeated attempts since 2005 to address the loopholes that allow American businesses to actually profit by breaking the law and hiring illegal labor, Kennedy is optimistic that under President Trump, and this current Congress, the New IDEA piece of legislation will finally pass:

    “We have a unique opportunity to move it because of the opportunity that the Tax Reform legislation has put in front of us. It’s the first time in 30 years that a significant tax reform effort has been attempted.”

    There is nothing in King’s proposed legislation that is not in lock-step with what the Trump administration continues to work towards, as most plans are based in plain logic just like Rep. King’s longtime legislative goal of closing the illegal immigrant-employer deductibility loophole.
