Final Tax Bill Contains Language Allowing Illegal Immigrants To Get Tax Credit
The Republican tax reform package agreed upon by House and Senate lawmakers contains language allowing illegal immigrants with American citizen children to get a tax credit.
The final GOP tax bill doubles the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000 and increases the amount of the refundable child tax credit to $1,400. This policy change geared towards helping working class families was pushed by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.
The conference bill includes language from the Senate tax plan that allowed parents of so-called “anchor babies” to receive the tax credit.
“In order to receive the child tax credit (i.e., both the refundable and non-refundable portion), a taxpayer must include a Social Security number for each qualifying child for whom the credit is claimed on the tax return,” the bill states.
