According to an Indiana NBC affiliate TV station investigation, illegal immigrants are getting more than 4 billion dollars annually in refunds through a tax loophole: the 'additional child tax credit'.

The IRS is obviously aware of the problem and doing nothing about it.
Regardless of where you stand on illegal immigration, I think we can all agree that getting huge refunds for children (not even your own) living in a foreign land is absolutely outrageous.
