RUSH: Did you hear? I just want to remind you: The White House is calling illegal immigrants “Americans-in-waiting” now. They have. At least in administration parlance, the term has been changed. “The White House used the new phrase Tuesday in an update on President ObamaÂ’s executive amnesty actions, titled ‘Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting.'” That’s what the Regime is calling Obama’s executive actions.
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, it’s not Americans-in-waiting. It’s unregistered Democrats-in-waiting. If we’re gonna call these people what they really are, they are unregistered Democrats-in-waiting, or undocumented Democrats-in-waiting. This business that they’re Americans-in-waiting?
In addition to all of this, “Illegal immigrants who are able to obtain Social Security Numbers and work permits as a result of President ObamaÂ’s executive amnesty could claim tens of thousands of dollars in back tax benefits, a new Congressional Research Service memo obtained first by Breitbart News reveals.
“The report comes following the Internal Revenue ServiceÂ’s confirmation that once illegal immigrants are granted Social Security Numbers — as a result of ObamaÂ’s executive actions — they will be able to file back tax returns and obtain up to four years of tax benefits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).”
So we’re gonna have some retroactive tax benefits as well. We’re going to give them Social Security numbers and all the rest of it, work permits, as part of executive amnesty, and then we’re gonna say, “We should have given it to you four years ago. Our bad. You have been mistreated. So since we should have done this for you four years ago, we’re gonna let you refile your tax returns from four years ago.” This is going to result in many of the people we’re talking about being given tax refund benefits totaling $35,000.
Now, you know, with this little fact alone, if you doubted it, there’s much more here than just bringing people out of the shadows. If we’re also gonna make their tax filing retroactive for one reason only so they get benefits, we’re not refiling or letting them refile taxes from four years ago, three years ago, two years ago, so that we can collect more tax revenue. No, no, no. They were entitled to benefits that they didn’t get, and we are now going to let them have benefits from four years ago because we should have done this four years ago. That’s the only justification for it, and it’s gonna end up being around $35,000.
“It found that for a family with three children in the four years from 2011-2014 ‘phase-out threshold amount’ would be able to obtain $35,521 in the EITC and CTC. A family of four in that same four year time frame and circumstance could obtain $35,560.” So, in addition to granting them amnesty, we are effectively going to hand each of them, if they are in a family of three or four — and we’ll find a way to make that happen. I mean, who cares that they’re not, right? We don’t know who they are, in the shadows and stuff, who knows what’s going on in the shadows.
So each one of them is gonna be given 35 grand to boot. It’s a Democrat signing bonus. That’s why these people are unregistered Democrats-in-waiting. I mean, hell, Apple Computer is trying to purloin employees from Tesla, and they’re giving them $250,000 signing bonuses. The Regime is giving illegals a $35,000 signing bonus. You think they’re not gonna vote Democrat after that, folks? Ha.
