Illegals benefiting from Barack Obama’s so-called prosecutorial discretion will apparently be eligible to receive taxpayer-funded bonuses of up to $24,000 apiece. If you are shocked by this, come closer so I can smack you on the back of the head. Remember how he and Democrats justified his impeachable executive amnesty scam by claiming that he was only exercising prosecutorial discretion by choosing not to prosecute or deport illegal aliens. But hey, it’s not amnesty. There’s no path to citizenship. They won’t receive benefits. We’re just not going to necessarily deport them!
Here’s the thing. America knew he was lying. Democrats and the press knew he was lying and defended it. Boehner, Rove, McConnell and the rest of the Establishment didn’t care if he was lying because being bought and paid for by Big Crony Business, they’re in favor of amnesty anyway. But America is not stupid like those people thing we are. We might not have had privileged knowledge of the details, but we knew it was a scam and a lie just the same.
Here’s how the scam works:
Illegal Aliens Can Get a Social Security Card
These amnestied illegals can now get social security cards. When you heard “not prosecuting or deporting them”, I’m pretty sure that in you mind, what you heard was “hey, let’s give them a social security card too” I know you thought that, because I did too.
I believe the ploy the Democrats used was that illegals who applied for work permits would have to have a social security number so they could “pay their fair share” (a handy phrase they like to use when they’re picking taxpayer pockets) into the social security trust fund.
Because prosecutorial discretion, dude.
And Receive Every Benefit of Citizenship
Meanwhile, what these illegals are being given is a gold-plated ID that they can parlay into getting driver licenses, Medicaid and other federal benefits, voter IDs (you do understand this is true, right?), and all kinds of things that normally only citizens would enjoy. There’s nothing whatsoever to stop them from doing any and all of that.
And Receive a Nice Little Illegal Alien Bonus
Senator Ben Sasse (NE-Awesome) has been instrumental in uncovering the pathway to a $24,000 bonus for every head of household.
Here’s how. A recent Homeland Security Committee hearing on immigration revealed an alarming consequence of President Obama’s executive amnesty—that illegal immigrants with deferred status may be able to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Moreover, this person, who is here in the U.S. unlawfully, could be able to file an amended tax return for up to the last three tax years, possibly receiving upwards of $24,000 in tax credits.
The discovery was made by Eileen J. O’Connor, a tax lawyer and the former head of the tax division of the United States Department of Justice, who used her congressional testimony in front of the Senate Homeland Security Committee to explain it. “The law makes a social security number a requirement of eligibility to receive the earned income credit,” O’Connor explained.
So Hooray for Prosecutorial Discretion
Isn’t it nice the way prosecutorial discretion works?
