Estimating Illegal Immigrant Receipt of Cash Payments from the EITC and ACTC

Millions of illegal immigrants have Social Security numbers, potentially allowing them to receive cash payments from the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit.

Hearing: The Juvenile Justice Pipeline and the Road Back to Integration

To address the problem of juvenile delinquency in our communities and conserve resources in this system that are needed to handle its traditional caseload, Congress should start by fixing the parts of the immigration law that add to the problem by enticing citizens of other countries to hire smugglers to bring families and minors to cross our border illegally.

Amnesty Would Impose Large Costs on Social Security and Medicare

Under current law, illegal immigrants are net contributors to Social Security and Medicare because they partially pay in to entitlement programs but cannot legally receive benefits. By granting eligibility for benefits, however, amnesty would transform illegal immigrants from net contributors into net beneficiaries, imposing steep costs on the Social Security and Medicare trust funds.

USCIS Creates New Illegal Alien Work Permit Program

Simply applying for a U visa for crime victims will now get you a work permit

The Biden administration has announced a new policy for U visa applicants that could potentially allow every illegal alien in the country to obtain a work permit. Rather than enhancing policies for aliens who are legitimate victims of crime (which is what the U visa is supposed to be for), USCIS will now give out four-year renewable work permits to any illegal alien who merely applies for a U visa.
