    Illegal immigrants, using their ITIN (Individual Tax I.D. Number) are claiming children living at home (who are actually living in Mexico) to get gigantic tax refunds from the IRS. Estimates put the abuse at $4 billion a year. Example: some illegals are claiming they have up to ten kids living in their home and getting $14,000 tax refunds.

    Video is about 6 minutes long. Watch if you want to get angry.

    But isn't taxation without representation tyranny?

    Illegal immigrants are abusing the country and being supported by a corrupt government.

    People who are in this country illegally should not be getting any government financial help whatsoever.

    When Romney was draft dodging in France on his missionary trip and living in a mansion did his father take him as a deduction? Were his ministerial expenses deducted? Isn't this the same as claiming legal children in Mexico?

    Good question, I wonder if Bill Clinton's dad claimed him when he was draft dodging and how Barack Obama got out of the draft, too. But Anyway, in Bill Clinton's case and in Mitt Romney's case, they were US citizens, and this thread is about illegals. So back on topic....

    Pleased you would approve of Mexicans with a green card claiming a dozen kids in Mexico on their 1040.
