President Obama deliberately excluded undocumented Americans from participating in the Affordable Care Act. This means millions of undocumented children still have to visit hospital emergency rooms to receive medical care. Moreover, by not repealing Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code, hard working Americans (documented and otherwise) continue to lose over 30 Billion Dollars a year to fat-cat campaign contributing fraudsters.
In short, under IRC Section 152, undocumented aliens (who file US Tax Returns) may deduct dependents that still live in Mexico – and each claimed dependent lowers the filers adjusted gross income by $3900 (and correspondingly lowers their tax liability and allows them to collect over $12,000 in earned income credits). Unfortunately, since its passage Section 152 has been rife with fraud. Initially, it was the Banksters’ and Wall Street who hijacked the program by aggressively marketing “Refund Anticipation Loans” at usurious rates. However, during the past five years, the swindle has become significantly more sophisticated, with the proliferation of “store front tax preparation businesses” who systematically extort outrageous fees and clandestine political contributions from their [primarily undocumented] clientele.
