Bill Would Close Illegal Immigrant Loophole

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions says that legislation he will endorse would close a loophole in the federal tax law that allows illegal immigrants to claim certain tax credits.

People who work but don’t have a valid Social Security number receive an Individual Tax Identification Number because their income is still taxed. And they can use that number to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit, which is meant for lower-income working families.

Sessions, an Alabama Republican, said Tuesday that he will back a bill from Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, to require recipients of the additional child tax credit to have a valid Social Security number.
