Fighting back against Obama's lawless immigration amnesty

Just a few weeks ago, one of my bills, the No Amnesty Tax Refunds for Illegals Act (H.R. 1298), was signed into law as part of the Protecting Americans Against Tax Hikes Act (H.R. 2029). My bill was in a response to an exchange I had with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a hearing in February 2015. While questioning the commissioner, I exposed the bogus claim the president made in November 2014. He said that, among the requirements for getting his executive amnesty, illegals must be “willing to pay your fair share of taxes.”

In fact, the IRS Commissioner grudgingly confirmed that, as a result of the president’s executive amnesty, illegals could actually get as much as $24,000 from the IRS by retroactively claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable tax credit! In other words, the head of the IRS confirmed that the IRS can indeed hand out thousands of Americans’ hard-earned taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants. This is wrong and unfair to hardworking American families, and my bill rights this wrong.
