Bills to Speed Resettlement of Afghan Allies Cut Corners on National Security, Fraud, and Public Health

There are reasons to be concerned about whether the bills presently pending before Congress strike the right balance between expeditious processing sufficient to meet the looming 9/11/21 withdrawal deadline, while simultaneously ensuring the security and public health safety of American citizens. This is because the bills waive or eliminate important public health and national security safeguards presently built into the law.

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. We estimate that illegal immigrants may receive between $3.8 and $4.5 billion from the two programs. This is in addition to the $4.4 billion we have previously estimated illegals likely received in stimulus checks this year.

Biden Receives Low Marks on Immigration in ABC News/Ipsos Poll
