IRS COMMISSIONER CONFIRMS AMNESTIED ILLEGALS CAN CLAIM TAX BENEFITS FOR ILLEGAL WORK
Undocumented immigrants granted amnesty and Social Security numbers under President Obama’s executive actions will be eligible for tax benefits on the years in which they were working U.S. illegally, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen confirms.

Koskinen offered details of the apparent loophole during a during a Senate Finance Committee hearing this week.

“Mr. Commissioner, can you confirm that those granted deferred action will be eligible to benefit from the [Earned Income Tax Credit] for years in which they were working without papers in the United States once they obtained a — once they obtain a Social Security number?” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) pressed Koskinen at the hearing Tuesday.

Koskinen replied in the affirmative, explaining that illegal immigrants or those without a Social Security number are not allowed to claim EITC benefits, however if they filed tax returns in the past they could retroactively claim the benefits once they obtain a Social Security number.

“Then the program allows you to file for an earned income tax credit program, in terms of whether you can do that retroactively, the normal statutes of limitations would apply as to when you can apply, file an amended return, in effect,” he said.

as reported by Breitbart
Many people know that you are able to file tax returns for not only 2014 but the three previous years. It appears that an unintended consequence of issuing these illegal aliens social security cards is that they can now file tax returns and use the EITC to get back thousands of dollars for each year filed. Oh, this is going to be a good one.

Good. Let them spend money here to move their family up - then watch more tax dollars roll in.

Roll in or out, depending on how much they make. Probably out.
Sigmund Freud defined four parts of a psyche; the id, the ego, the superego and the stratego. The Stratego being the highest form of morality and scientific thinking.

Thread title is misleading. These aren't illegal immigrants. Please change this to reflect reality.

Would the OP even like to attempt quantifying the economy impact of undocumented labour.

Because, I'd imagine its non-trivial.
