Collins Moves to Block Obama Amnesty Benefits

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Doug Collins introduced the “Tax Credit Accountability Act”, to prevent anyone lacking lawful immigration status from being eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit.

“President Obama has used executive amnesty to enact policies to help illegal immigrants at the expense of American citizens. Illegal immigrants are being financially rewarded for breaking the law with a benefit that is supposed to be reserved for lawful citizens of this country.  Plain and simple, this is an amnesty bonus. We can’t allow our laws to be cheapened; lawful status must be a requirement for any benefit, tax or otherwise. This legislation is necessary to rein in an out-of-control administration who continues to prioritize illegal immigrants over American citizens. Defending the rule of law and the integrity of our tax system will remain one of my top priorities in Congress.”

H.R. 3123, the “Tax Credit Accountability Act” is supported by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Numbers USA.
