We told you earlier that over four billion dollars of your money is going to in the illegals each year through a loophole in the child tax credit law.
My next guest is trying to stop that Louisiana senator David -- joins us now so thank you so much for joining us so.
Take us through this new program but -- -- you wrote the bill.
That stops this tax loophole that that it apparently is is finding four billion dollars our tax money going to illegals pockets.
You know I didn't get to the floor.
We're trying to get a vote on the floor unfortunately the Democrats are obstructing map but we're gonna keep trying and get a vote.
This is four point two billion dollars each and every year.
Taxpayer money checks from the taxpayer going out to illegal families who clearly do not qualify for this credit.
So it's crazy -- there's a simple facts and the simple facts in my bill.
Is to demand that everyone applying for this child care tax credit have a valid Social Security number.
That it will disqualify folks you shouldn't get it it will not disqualify anyone he -- okay so -- tell us what how how senator Reid says it's.
It's not where you hit the floor what what is what's the push back.
I don't know what the push back is I mean unfortunately.
A lot of liberals Democrats just digging their heels on this immigration issue no matter what the merits of a particular question -- But we require exactly the same thing with regard to the earned income tax credit.
That's how we enforce that to make sure it doesn't go to folks who don't deserve it required -- valid Social Security number right now and it's.
Senator let me read senator Reid's statement he provided us he said quote tax fraud is a very serious problem.
We should address but this poorly constructed proposal is so broad it would take away tax credits for millions of hardworking.
Families whose children are American citizens now he's calling you out sir you wrote this -- -- I'm not mistaken right.
Absolutely I think that's just exactly wrong and senator Reid and I had an exchange on the floor two days ago.
It was obvious then that he didn't know the details of the proposal so I'd love to know exactly who would we would disqualify.
That should get the credit.
If there's any issue there -- will corrected but I don't think there is all right senator we have to leave it there at time but certainly keep us informed on the weather had that I deserve it looks like it's gonna play thank you.
