(Big League Politics) – President Donald Trump is capable of building most or all of his southern border wall with the money the federal government spends giving tax refunds to illegal aliens.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration confirmed that Additional Child Tax Credits for ITIN (the tax classification that illegal immigrants use) reached $4.2 billion in the year 2010, noting: “The payment of Federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside, and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts Federal law and policy to remove such incentives.”
Interesting. The number has almost certainly grown larger than $4.2 billion since 2010. Why? Because the IRS actively ignores warnings from the Social Security administration about illegal aliens using fake Social Security numbers.
According to Trump administration director of national intelligence and former senator Dan Coats:
What we learned is that … the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that’s not really our job. We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”
Now we know this Social Security scheme has life or death consequences.
Gustavo Perez Arriaga, the suspected killer of California police officer Ronil Singh, was using two fake Social Security numbers in the United States. Taxpayers financed a public defender in his 2008 DUI case in Stanislaus County according to sources close to law enforcement.
ICE had no previous contact with the suspect, which Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson blamed on sanctuary laws.
Arriaga was using the following Social Security numbers, according to available information: 537-89-0142 and also 667-28-2314.
Records show that “Gustavo Perez,” a name Arriaga used when convenient, retained a public defender when he faced three misdemeanor charges for driving under the influence and driving without a license. He was sentenced to probation on September 11, 2008. Thus, taxpayers funded the man’s criminal defense in that case. Stanislaus County records only show one DUI case for Perez in that county, though law enforcement said that he has been twice arrested on DUI charges.
Arriaga was in the United States illegally when he allegedly shot and killed Corporal Singh at a traffic stop.
Stanislaus County, California Sheriff Adam Christianson announced the arrest of the suspected illegal immigrant killer of Ronil Singh, following a manhunt for the suspect.
Suspect Gustavo Perez Arriaga was taken into custody Friday after allegedly shooting and killing Newman Police Department Corporal Singh on Wednesday.
“I want justice for the Singh family,” Sheriff Christianson said, vowing that “We were never more than a step behind this guy.”
“I don’t have any information yet on prior deportations, I simply want to focus on the fact that this is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been reported to ICE. We were prohibited, law enforcement was prohibited, because of sanctuary laws and that led to the encounter with Officer Singh. I’m suggesting that the outcome could have been different if law enforcement wasn’t restricted, prohibited, or had their hands tied because of political interference.”
“We have to have a conversation about restrictive legislation that puts our community at risk,” Christianson also said.
