The current law providing for a child tax credit requires those children to have Social Security Numbers in order for their parents to be able to claim the credit.
Saira Soto, a Deputy Executive Director for Children’s Defense Fund California, wants immigrant children who lack Social Security numbers also to qualify their parents for the credit.
In order to ensure a fair and just system that helps grow and boost our economy, and one that supports our children, immigrant families must be included.
Of course, immigrant families already are included in the present form of the child tax credit. It’s illegal alien families and non-citizen families in our nation legally who are not.
Soto knows this full well; her demand is an illustration of the dishonesty of the Left’s Free Stuff for Everyone movement.
