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.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
