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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
