What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Senator Wants Permanent Underclass, Creates Punitive Tax Code For Immigrants Who Achieve Legal Status’

jeff sessions1

Setting up a sub class of citizens that contribute a permanent revenue stream but can’t claim benefits from programs that revenue stream pays for.

To Republicans – this is ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’.

Having learned nothing from the election but claiming that they need to ‘reach out to Latinos…….

‘Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has introduced measures that could permanently bar undocumented immigrants from receiving federal tax credits and health care benefits under the Affordable Care Act — even if they achieve legal status through comprehensive immigration reform’.

‘The amendments seeks to prevent the undocumented population from qualifying for all refundable tax credits — including the homebuyer credit, the health coverage credit, and the child tax credit’.

‘Immigrants would be unable to take advantage of the tax benefits after they earn legal status and seek to integrate themselves into American society’.

‘They’ll pay the same taxes as others, but would be denied the assistance that their taxes are intended to cover’.

‘Below is the text of the two amendments’:

‘SEC. 3__. DEFICIT-REDUCTION RESERVE FUND TO ACHIEVE SAVINGS BY PROHIBITING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS GRANTED LEGAL STATUS FROM QUALIFYING FOR A REFUNDABLE TAX CREDIT’.
‘the prohibition of illegal immigrants or aliens who were unlawfully present in the United States prior to receiving a grant of legal immigration status from qualifying for refundable tax credits’.

‘SEC. 3__. DEFICIT-REDUCTION RESERVE FUND TO ACHIEVE SAVINGS BY PROHIBITING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS GRANTED LEGAL STATUS FROM QUALIFYING FOR FEDERALLY SUBSIDIZED HEALTH CARE’.
‘prohibiting illegal immigrants or aliens who were unlawfully present in the United States prior to receiving a grant of legal immigration status from qualifying for Federally subsidized health care’.
