American civics changed quite a bit throughout the 20th century and we are feeling the effects of it in the 21st.
As a result of the accepted lawlessness, the growing abuse of the legal precedent of “prosecutorial discretion” has thrown jurisprudence in a tailspin.
Since taking office, President Joe Biden has used his prosecutorial discretion to stop the enforcement of most immigration laws pertaining to our southern border. As a result, the Border Patrol arrested a record 1.66 million illegals on our Southern Border, in the 2021 Fiscal Year alone.
Now in Joe’s “Build Back Better Act,” a $1.75 trillion budget reconciliation package, the Biden administration would give $800 million worth of cash payments to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who were recently released into the United States interior, according to a Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analysis.
The CIS analyzed the cost to American taxpayers if Biden’s expanded Child Tax Credit for illegal aliens was extended for at least another year as part of the reconciliation package.
CIS Director of Research Steven Camarota now writes that the cost to taxpayers will once again increase as a result of roughly 500,000 to 600,000 more illegal aliens being released into the U.S. interior this year. They would be eligible to receive $800 million in cash payments as a result of the tax credits.
In an October analysis, we estimated that illegal immigrants would receive $8.2 billion in cash payments from the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC), which is part of budget reconciliation bill, also referred to as the Build Back Better (BBB) Act. That analysis assumed cash payments would be limited to illegal immigrants with U.S.-born children, as is the case with the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) it replaces. But the current version of the BBB Act repeals p. 1,452, line 14, the requirement that children claimed as dependents need Social Security numbers (SSNs). As a result, illegal immigrants whose children are illegal immigrants as well will receive an estimated $1.5 billion in payments from the new program.
The elimination of the SSN requirement also allows the more than 600,000 illegal immigrants encountered at the border in family units or as unaccompanied minors and released in FY 2021 to receive cash payments from the new CTC. We roughly estimate these new arrivals will receive slightly less than $800 million from the program, for a total of $10.5 billion in cash payments to illegal immigrants here in 2020 or released into the country in FY 2021. Receipt of payments under the new CTC is made all the easier because the BBB eliminates the work requirement of the old ACTC.
This rewarding of illegal aliens with entry into our country and now the attempt to send hundreds of millions of dollars in cash to them is criminal, well at least in a nation that still has law and order.
The changes necessary to save our Constitutional Republic would be considered draconian by the left, but anything short would do nothing to end the march towards the demise of our nation.
