Rep. Messer's bill would close tax loophole for undocumented workers


    WASHINGTON, D.C. - Five years after 13 Investigates exposed a massive tax loophole for undocumented workers, Congress will again consider a remedy.

    This afternoon, Congressman Luke Messer (R – Indiana) introduced legislation that would effectively prevent illegal immigrants from claiming Child Tax Credits on their federal tax returns.

    Back in 2012, WTHR exposed how the Internal Revenue Service was paying more than $4 billion annually in various Child Tax Credits to undocumented workers – and that much of that money was granted for children who never lived in the United States.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
