Am I Misunderstanding the Situation?

There is a post explaining that the IRS can't (or, at least, has not YET) notified the TAXPAYERS with legal Social Security numbers that their identity has been stolen, primarily by illegal aliens (I refuse to dignify their actions with the term immigrant).

They claim that they have given these CRIMINALS a way to claim money from the IRS by issuing another, alternative number, i.e., the TIN:
Victims’ numbers are stolen by illegal immigrants who need to give employers a valid Social Security number in order to get a job. Employers are prohibited from probing too deeply into numbers, even when they suspect fraud.
But the IRS learns of the scam when the illegal immigrants file their taxes using a special Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) the agency doles out chiefly to illegal immigrants as a way of making sure they’re paying taxes even if they’re not supposed to be in the U.S.
Between 2011 and 2015 the agency flagged nearly 1.1 million returns where someone appeared to have stolen a valid Social Security number, the inspector general said.
But, the illegal aliens, like most of the citizens of the USA, do NOT owe money to the IRS - if they file, they get a refund.  Or, worse, a TAX CREDIT that was intended to help US Citizens with relatively low incomes, but working, raise their families.

So, why do we have to HELP THEM GET MORE MONEY?  In addition to the monies that they already receive in the form of:

  • Free school
  • Free hospitalization
  • EBT cards
  • Housing subsidies
  • Obamacare
  • etc.
Yes, I do know that "technically" the illegal alien doesn't receive the money/equivalent (wink, wink), but their American-born children do.

Same thing - the HOUSEHOLD, which contains people who should be deported, get $$$$$$$$$.
