NBC Eyewitness News 13 in Indiana — yes, Indiana -- shows a massive IRS tax loophole which provides over $4 billion per year in tax credits to millions of illegal aliens. In many cases recipients of American taxpayers' misused monies have never set foot in the United States.
Indiana is approximately 1700 miles northeast of the Mexican border.
A device known as the Additional Child Tax Credit is being used to pay for children living in Mexico — who have never lived here. One thief admitted through an interpreter that his address is being used to file tax returns for numerous children, including multiple nieces and nephews. "If the opportunity is there and they give it [to him] why not take advantage of it?" he asked in Spanish. As a stunning example, thousands in tax credits have been awarded to an illegal alien who claimed 20 children live in a single trailer, that actually housed just one little girl.

Yeah, it does bother me that US citizens are being cheated (i'm not from the US), but i do see his logic.
It is a dog eat dog world, and you'd be foolish to not take advantage. I mean, if citizens had the chance at something like this, they wouldn't take it?
It's a problem with your system - not the people.
If you put an expensive piece of meat in front of a starving dog - he will take it. It's not his fault. He's hungry. It's the person's fault for giving it to him
I'm saying this, because no doubt people will come on here for a hatred for these people. I was quite surprised that person living at that address was willing to talk on camera.
