    The major factor is that the IRS has known about it for years. That should be a crime.
    This loophole needs to be fixed immediately or the deduction should be deleted.

    It's a tax credit. "Illegals" couldn't get this tax credit unless they're filing taxes...

    Which kind of blows your "Illegals don't pay taxes" meme out of the water, doesn't it?

    It is the same child tax credit every taxpayer uses. It is not a "loophole".

    At least the illegals are paying taxes!
