Former President Barack Obama promised during the 2008 national election campaign to expand the EITC to include workers without children, taxpayers with more than three children, and to increase the credit for married people to eliminate the “marriage penalty” compared to single filers.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Obama’s economic stimulus bill signed February 17, 2009, did increase the three-children credit and get rid of the marriage penalty for the EITC.

“Currently, an illegal alien, even with a shaky Social Security number or an ITIN (individual tax identification number), may claim the up-to-$1,000-a-head payments even though the kids only have ITINs, which are not proof of legal residence, as SSNs are.”

Meanwhile, from the National Department of Further Incompetency, it turns out that, between 2011 and 2016, the IRS tracked 1.3 million cases of identity theft by illegals, and has done nothing about it. In case you weren’t aware,
