    From the actual audit: "Prior to Tax Year[8] 2001, the CTC was only refundable if the taxpayer had three or more qualifying children and Social Security taxes[9] exceeding any earned income credits. The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001[10] removed these requirements and increased the CTC over time from $500 to $1,000 per child, making more families eligible for the refundable portion of the credit (known as the ACTC). Since then, claims for the ACTC by ITIN filers have increased significantly. In Processing Year 2005, 796,000 ITIN filers claimed ACTCs totaling $924 million. By Processing Year 2008, these claims had risen to 1,526,276 ITIN filers claiming ACTCs totaling $2.1 billion.


    So, which gov't was calling the shots in 2001?

    Being that you are Canadian and apparently have no knowledge whatsoever about how our system of government is set up here in the USA, I'll answer your question: The U.S. Federal Government was "calling the shots in 2001."





    And the US Federal Government under Republicans brushed this illegal immigrant problem under the table because big business liked those low wage earners working so cheaply for them. But putting that aside, this situation is way out of control with handouts going to non citizens, I will have to agree with you and Mock on that much for sure. But the question is, how after the Government facilitated there being here for all those years do we deal with them fairly now.

    I don't even want to picture police rounding up illegals in buses, ripping them from their families who are many times naturalized citizens, to take them to holding centers until they can be processed for deportation at some drop off point at the border.

    Disingenuous answer, as expected.

    Was it the Clinton gov't, the Bush gov't or the Obama govt? There, we dumbed it down for you.
